truncation of MT RSS entries

Posted on Aug 20, 2002

By default, Movable Type RSS entries only include the first twenty words of an article. This seems wrong - if the principal way in which content is to be read is through an RSS aggregator, much of the interesting comment will be missed.

It's easily fixed - change the RSS 0.92 and 1.0 templates to use MTItemBody rather than MTEntryExcerpt.

To see what you are missing, compare the RSS datafor Daring Fireball with the siteitself.
