feed "full text" doesn't seem to work

    Hi all,

    I just migrated to wordpress.com. Previously my blog was self hosted. Everything seems fine, except for one detail.

    Even though in the dashboard -> settings -> reading I have set “For each article in a feed, show” to “Full text”, the feed at http://blog.inliniac.net/feed/ still only shows the summary.

    Any ideas on how to resolve this?

    Thanks in advance!

    The blog I need help with is blog.inliniac.net.


    I’m seeing full posts on your feed right now. I clicked the “read more” link on a couple of the posts in your feed and checked and I’m seeing the whole post. You might clear your browser cache and then take another look. Sometimes it can take a little while for the change to show up, but typically less than an hour.

    Some feed readers (Google reader, etc.) though may not update until after you publish a new post. Most don’t do anything until they see new content and even then sometimes it may take a little while for them to refresh the entire feed in their indexes.



    Thanks for checking. I’m a bit confused now. When I open the feed in a new browser that didn’t visit the feed before, I still see the first sentences followed by “continue reading”.

    In Chrome the XML does show both an excerpt (<description> and the whole body it seems (<content:encoded>).


    I’m not sure what is going on then. I’m seeing full posts in Safari 5.1.7.



    If I change the “Syndication feeds show the most recent” setting and reload the http://blog.inliniac.net/feed/ in firefox I see it change. The page show the number of entries I configured. That makes me think caching is not an issue.

    Just tried liferea and there it looks fine. I guess firefox just chooses to display the “description” instead of the whole post.

    This leaves only an issue with displaying the feed in our “planet” site: http://planet.suricata-ids.org/ It worked fine on my selfhosted wordpress 3.4.1. Will talk to the admin to see if it’s a setting there or that it can be reloaded or something.

    Thanks for your help.


    The feed shown in feed widgets/thingies will probably not update till a new post is published. I’ve seen that before. The feed thingies look for new content and if they don’t see any, they don’t refresh the feed display.



    Using http://blog.inliniac.net/feed/atom/ instead of the …/feed/ variant solved the planet issue. All issues resolved.

    Thanks for your input thesacredpath!


    You are welcome and glad you found a solution.
