  • Displaying full blog posts in a forum (with rss)

    I have been trying all morning to get the posts from several of my blogs.
    I use the vb rss, but it only displays about 5 lines of text from a blog post and dont show images etc..

    How would i go about displaying the whole content of a blog post in my forum as a post instead of just a pointless paragraph?

      Actually, there is a point to abbreviated content if you are trying to drive traffic back to the blog itself, so users can post comments for a blog in the blog, instead of the forum. But it does depend on what your objectives are.

      You can try the content:encoded in the body template. You can then test with the preview feed button. See if that gives you what you want. I personally prefer just the title and link in the body template, that way, the traffic flows back to the blog.

        There is links with in the blog posts the redirect to the blog.
        and comments on the blog are disabled as i would preffer people to reply on the forum (which i why i want the full blog post to be displayed)

        Im a complete novice with vbulletin and rss!
