    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?

    The W3C Feed validator reports your feed as valid, could you give us an example of what the podcast description shows?

    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. This field is theme-dependent and so won’t always dictate what’s displayed on your site, but it does seem to be used in generating the description for feeds. 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!
