    Although I have it set to do so in my dashboard, RSS 2.0 is not showing the full content, only the excerpt. What gives?

    when specifying the rss feed address use this format:


    the 2 on the end did it for me

    squooze my ignorance, but I know very little about html etc. I have the same issue, my site http://www.scootersnoop.com is only sending out a summary rss even though I have selected "Full feed".
    In the answer above, where exactly to I stick that '2'?

  4. scooter: Umm.. No, your site appears to send a full feed. At least, the full content of your posts is in the RSS that I get back.

    I have exactly the same problem as brittanie on

    I thought for a moment that this would have something to do with my template, showing the_excerpt instead of the_content, but no.

    Any idea?

    Well, I do not get it. With Firefox internal Feed reader, I get the summary. With Netvibes, I get the summary (But I get the complete text reading Gizmodo!?).

    But then, when I use the Sage plug-in in Firefox, this thing can see the whole content, or the summary, when I switch the option in the Control Panel of my WordPress site. In other words, only Sage works fine.

    My friend helped me with a solution. I'm not sure if this is kosher or whatever, but we edited my wp-rss2.php file and changed the following:

    In the section of php if() else() statements where it's saying, <?php if (get_settings('rss_use_excerpt'), we changed the contents of the <description> after the 'else' statement.

    My change was this: <description><![CDATA[<?php the_content('', 0, '') ?>]]></description>

    We did this ONLY for the 'description' tag after the else statement.

    Then, make sure you choose the "full text" setting in your wordpress control panel.
