Getting my full-text feed back, I hope…

Fingers crossed! OK, these aren’t my fingers, but still…

As I looked into this vexing problem further, I remembered that WordPress generates several feed URLs for any blog. I had been pointing this version, contentious.com/wp-rss.php, to Feedburner — and for some reason that version is truncated.

I just realized that when I subscribe directly to this version of my feed, contentious.com/wp-rss2.php, I do indeed get the full text, and photos/video if any.

So I’ve changed my Feedburner feed to burn itself from the second version, rather than the first. Hopefully that’ll fix the problem. We’ll see when I publish this post. Fingers crossed!…

(Later) AHA! I think that did the trick! If anyone’s still getting truncated content, check to see whether you’re subscribed to the Feedburner version of my feed:  feeds.feedburner.com/Contentious and see if that fixes it. If so, and you’re still getting truncated content, please comment below.
