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!...
