Hi!Considering the fact that wordpress.com is a powerful tool for bloggers with so many options,the change back of the <more> tag not cutting off posts on feeds left me speechless.Why:1)when <more> tag was cutting posts on feeds,i always had the ability NOT to add <more> tag in my post,so it could all go to the feed.So there were 3 options:use more tag and cut on feeds,DONT USE more tag and not cut on feeds.If you think "the looks" of a blog are more essential than its traffic,then ok with me.Blogs survive by people who read them.I know that many people like me are now standing there unable to do anything,while their blogs are dying.Why?Because there are people who come exclusively by feeds.If you give them a whole post on a feed (except the fact that you're terribly filling a whole feed with a huge post,and some of us don't like this)they don't bother to come on the blog because they've read your post already.
Now many people gave us optional sugestions in the more tag topic.One-the optional excerpt,which as much as i can understand,confuses people IN the blog presentation,as it happened to me when my friends WP users tried it.Two-use summary.Summary doesnt provide any image to feeds,not even the post's title.
I assume you understand none of this settings is capable of taking the place of the useful <more> tag,as it was.
I know i'm not alone on this cause i have discussed with people who feel the same way.And i still wonder:why <more> tag doesn't cut off posts on feeds anymore?what was the exact purpose of this action?
Thank you very much
