  • Outgoing RSS feed summary instead of full text

    An option to send out RSS feeds as only a summary of the content instead of the full content would be welcome.

    As it stands, my site just sends out the full content for every single main page article, images and all, via RSS. And as far as I know, there's no way to specify a cutoff for more of a summary style that only includes the first few sentences and/or image, or whatever I'd specify.

    Is this something that can easily be addressed?

    It would require code changes. However, there is already functionality to provide snippets of code in the software so that can probably be reused. I suggest creating a Feature Request as it would probably require a new setting on the External Data Provider.
