RSS Feeds Not Displaying Excerpts (3 posts)

    Hello All

    I currently have the <?php the_excerpt(); ?> on my index page and the <?php the_content(); ?> for my single.php page. It works fine in the web browser.

    However, when using a Feed Aggregator Reader (lets say google reader), it displays my single posts' contents. I would like to set the reader to retrieve the excerpts (for my single posts) instead.

    or perhaps I would like the feed reader to retrieve my index page only, not my single posts.

    how can i set this up?

    many thanks for any suggestions!

    set the feed option to excerpt in admin.

    Thanks Beel, that did the trick.

    I'm still puzzle about something though, concerning <?php the_excerpt_rss(); ?>


    In that tutorial from codex, it said that that the_excerpt_rss() tag has to be in the loop.

    they're not talking about the loop from the index.php and single.php file, are they?

    I thought that tag suppose is located in the rss php files (such as wp-rss2.php), that we can tweak to get a different length of the excerpt?
