[resolved] RSS feed summary strips HTML, full text is fine. How to keep HTML in summary? (4 posts)

    I set my RSS feed to show a summary rather than the full text. Full text works just dandy, all HTML and images and basically The Way It Is Supposed To Be.

    But the summary, oy! The summary.

    No HTML at all, not even paragraph breaks, which made last post look pretty funky considering there were lots of short sentences with paragraph breaks in it.

    So. How to fix this? I did a search and the closest thread I could find to match this problem didn't have an answer, just one lost person, as confused as I.

    I haven't used the plugin mentioned, but my read suggests it will work for rss feeds.

    I believe if you include html in the actual excerpt, it will show up in the feed. WP just strips html when "faking" the excerpt.

    Thank you, Beel, your second suggestion works great. My summaries every so much better now.
