My b2evolution Version: Not Entered

As the title states, I would like reduce the RSS feed to show title and description only

in a service such as Bloglines it displays the whole article

How is it possible to achieve the display of the Title and a short description only, please?

Your feed is simply another skin in these version (assuming you're on 1.8 or above).

Head to the skins directory on your host and have a play with _atom / _rdf / _rss / or _rss2 ... depending on what you want to achieve.

Seems to me that you can put in as much (or as little) as you want?

Hope this helps.

PS - An alternative is to use (which we do) and limit the Feed content to a teaser. (We do this by selecting the first 400 characters of the post ... then control that content via CSS, using a <p class="description"> paragraph</p> Feedburner displays the first 400 characters of the paragraph, but we've hidden it from our blog via CSS , using a "p.description display:none" directive.

There's more than one way to kill a bird (and get better SEO at the same time) :p !!

stk this sounds what I will need to do

I was testing Feedburner and Bloglisting and didn't want the whole feed to be displayed

this method can be used for the vbulletin feeds as well

will try this shortly and may need to ask a few questions

thank you
