    How can I use code for a filter in functions.php to limit the characters/text size in my RSS feeds?

    I am trying to use the following code to show 10 words but it is not working:

    function myFilterShortenRSS($query) {
        if ($query->the_content_rss) {
            $query->set('','','10');
        }
    return $query;
    }
    add_filter('pre_get_posts','myFilterShortenRSS');

    Sorry, anybody know the code to correctly make only the first 10 words show in the RSS feed? Or some way to only show the text before the “more” cut-off?

    Any ideas how to cut the RSS feed down in size?

    I am fairly certain about 2 years ago the RSS feed did stop at the < !– more — > tag…. but now the summary continues for many more words… I would like to be able to truncate this to whatever I need to shorten it to.

    Have you looked at this?

    Looks like there’s some built-in options to do what you want…

    Just looking into these issues myself, so probably can’t offer further help, but thought you might find useful

    i would also like to know how to limit the default wordpress rss to xx words (and still keep the post image)
