Movable Type RSS Feeds - Full entries

Syam Kumar April 19, 2004 09:18 PM IST

The default RSS templates from Movable Type create feeds that contain only an excerpt of each blog entry. If the 'Entry Excerpt' field is blank, MT will auto-generate an excerpt from 'Entry Body', stripping all its HTML code.

Because of this, some of my blog entries looked weird in feed readers. I made a small change in the <description></description> tag inside <item></item> to include full entry and a link to comments.

            <a href="<$MTEntryPermalink$>#comments">

Atom feed contains both 'Entry Body' and 'Extended Body', so there is nothing to change.
