[resolved] Post ONLY title and link (and NOT excerpt) in Google + page using Hootsuite/RSS? (3 posts)

    I am getting my blog posts posted in Google + page using Hootsuite. Usually, the title of the post and a short-link get posted. Which is what I want.

    However, sometimes with the title and the link, an excerpt is also posted. This is happening intermittently.

    How do I ensure that ALWAYS only title and the link get posted?

    Hootsuite uses my RSS feed to post the links.

    Please help.

    All right, I have found a solution, but it's not very good.

    This plugin did the job for me: Advanced Excerpt

    Since I do not require excerpts anywhere in the site (not even in meta descriptions which I manually set using the SubHeading and WordPress SEO plugins), I set the Excerpt length to 0 using this plugin. Which basically means disabling excerpts in WordPress. Now all posts in Google + comprise only titles and links.

    But I guess this is not an excellent solution as it would not work for those who need the excerpt generating function.
