RSS not showing Full Text (4 posts)

    I've seen so many posts about this all over the internet, yet with no solution.

    Having read dozens of posts in this forum, with responses from the staff claiming that the feed IS definitely displaying the full text, I'm pretty certain that my feed isn't.

    I don't use any feed plugin for RSS.
    I have Full Text selected in the options.

    Yet I load my feed in [NetNewsWire,Firefox,GoogleReader,Safari,FeedProxy] and the summary version is displayed.

    Before posting this I decided to upgrade WP (from 2.9). And now I've just realized that the date tag is missing from the XML, so all my posts in the readers appear to be published whenever they were loaded (e.g. "1 hour ago")..

    In all my feed readers that I have tested, I am loading other feeds perfectly fine.

    Anyone know what the solution is to both these problems?

    I've also tried curl in terminal with similar results. So the feed is most definitely NOT displaying the full text.

    I forgot to include the url:

    Many thanks

    I've just set up feedburner, which is also pulling in the Summary

    Any ideas?

    Just came across this article
    Hack fix for WordPress 2.9 not displaying full text RSS

    The RAW feed (curl from terminal) is now displaying full text.

    However this code change appears within this if statement <?php if (get_option('rss_use_excerpt')) : ?>

    Which means that it will display full text even where readers are requesting a summary/excerpt.... nasty

    If anyone has a cleaner solution or can shed some more light on this please suggest.

    Thank you
