I'm looking to send out excerpts of my client's blog posts in the RSS feed using the Jetpack plugin for his self-hosted site. I'm reporting it here because the setting ("For each article in feed, show Summary") to achieve this does not work for either the free WordPress.com blog or a self-hosted version, which I've tested. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/reading-settings/
WordPress.org support indicated that a setting for sending out excerpts in the RSS feed for the Jetpack plugin did not exist. Here -> http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-jetpack-by-wordpresscom-how-to-send-out-short-rss-updates-wjetpack
My questions are:
1. Is there a means to get my client's WordPress.com blog to send out excerpts in the RSS feed?
2. Will an update to support feed excerpts for the Jetpack plugin (for self-hosted sites) be released soon? If not, is there a workaround?
Self-hosted site: habitatforhorses.org
Any help would be appreciated.
