WP2.1 and the Tip of the RSS Iceberg

Figured out why my RSS feed isn’t displaying the full post anymore. Apparently Wordpress now truncates posts that use the <more> tag in RSS feeds. Funny, it never did that before. I am, now, quite pissed. #

Amen brother. Amen.

I would have written a rant about this, but I just could not be bothered. But anything Christopher says, I agree with 100%. Why would you change core functionality in a point update? It doesn’t make any sense at all. Especially since it actually removes the choice between excerpts and full-length feeds…

I’ve always proudly served full-length feeds, since I firmly believe that excerpted feeds are lame. And now, with this new functionality, I no longer have the choice.

Adding injury to injury, the new ‘excerpt’ doesn’t even indicate to the reader of the feed that they are only seeing the tip of the iceberg!...

First forced rel=nofollow. Then snap. Now this?

Seriously.
