feed "full text" doesn't seem to work
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.
