RSS feed output

Jul 11, 2012 5:16 PM

HI,

 

My rss feed output show the entire blog and all the posts in their full length.  I prefer to send out a summary and a set number of posts.  How do i do that?

 

thanks

Paul

    Hi there,

     

    Unfortunately you can't currently manipulate the format in which RSS feeds render. Instead, I'd suggest you use a free service like Feedburner (http://feedburner.google.com) to optimize your feed as you see fit. All you need to do is provide Feedburner with your raw RSS feed URL, and then under "Optimize" they offer a service called "Summary", which should achieve something similar to what you've mentioned. You then embed/provide customers with the Feedburner URL as opposed to the original URL.

     

    If you want something even more custom, consider Yahoo Pipes perhaps - it's able to completely manipulate RSS feeds and spit them back out in a variety of formats.

     

    Hope that helps,

    Jackson.
