How do I fix this in my RSS feed
In my RSS feed it cuts off the description tag before the content of the post ends, because of this the podcast I publish on itunes has its description cut off and replaced with a string of code. I would like to fix this for all the posts in the podcast catagory, can you help me?

Aside from the CDATA part that is all the itunes description shows. I’ve changed to RSS settings to full text and it didnt do anything
It may be that you can work around this by typing a description (with the appropriate link) in the Excerpt field when editing the post.

It may be worth a try, at any rate, though I’m not at all certain it’ll work.
Wow, thank you so much for that. The lack of a proper description has been annoying me for far too long. It worked perfectly!
