The setting "Syndication feeds show the most recent" can't be set above 50 items

    Hi there:

    There’s a setting that specifies the maximum number of items that can appear in an RSS feed (Settings > Reading > “Syndication feeds show the most recent”). Suddenly, it can’t be set higher than 50 items. I can change it to 49 items and below; but whenever I try to go above 50 items, the value is automatically switched back to 50 when I click the “Save changes” button. When I created this blog, that value could be set significantly higher than that (that’s actually why I went with WordPress in the first place!).

    Is this an official change for WordPress? Is there some way I can populate my RSS feed with more than 50 items? If not, that’s going to be a big problem for me.

    NOTE: I’ve tried clearing my cache and cookies, as well as switching browsers, as instructed on other pages. It didn’t make a difference.

    Thank you for any insight you can provide.
