RSS feed only shows excerpts even though I've enabled full posts in feed (6 posts)

    Hello, fantastic nerds! I was wondering if you guys could help me with a problem I've had with my RSS feed since WP 2.8.6. Although I've selected "full text" in the "For each article in a feed, show:" option in Reading Settings, only my excerpts show up in my blog's RSS feed. I have a feeling this might be caused by a plugin (Advanced Excerpt, probably?), but I don't know exactly why this is happening. Help?

    My RSS feed is located at http://www.deanlozarie.com/feed/.

    I noticed your feed has the entire full post now. Any idea how you fixed it, I have the same exact issue where only excerpts are showing in my feed, even though I have "full text" selected.

    gah. I always do this. Ask a question then just realize my mistake a few minutes later. Anyway, I "fixed" the issue. There seems to be a discrepancy between http://www.mysite.com/feed/ (correct) and http://www.mysite.com/feed/rss/ (which I was using initially). They both looked the same and only showed the excerpt in the browser...

    The trick is to just view the source code, I realized /feed/rss/ didn't have my remaining post text whereas /feed/ had it in the source, even though on screen it was only spitting out the excerpt as well. So for anyone else having this issue, I suggest just viewing the source code!

    I have the same issue and it is not resolved yet. The source code at mysite.com/feed contains the <content: encoded> tags. The source code at mysite.com/feed/rss contains only the description tags, among others. The code at mysite.com/?feed=atom contains both. The content tags only have excerpts though. I have the reading settings set to full text. All plugins deactivated still lead to excerpts. Is this a bug?
