Unchanging RSS extract

Hello everyone

Is there a way of permanently fixing the RSS feed so that instead of a title or a sample of the post, it can be set to, for example, the Long Description of the blog, or some other extract that doesn't change from post to post?

Thanks

Cliff

Moved to feature requests.
Just edit the /skins/_rss2/index.main.php file. There are currently 3 modes: excerpt, normal and full

Thanks - can I add something manual in there somewhere? Would it be in lines 120-1 "<description><?php
$content = $Item->get_excerpt( 'entityencoded' );

That doesn't sound much like what RSS feeds are designed to do. You can do it by editing the RSS skin though.

Thanks. Do you mean skins/_rss/index.main.php?

Is there any chance anyone could show me where to put the unchanging extract?

Yes, or maybe /_rss2/ if you want to use RSS2.

Just look at your RSS feed and find the <tag> you want to change. Then find the same <tag> in the php file and do your thing ;)
