Kenneth WedMore Lund added a post in a topic: Request: Truncation of RSS
I would kindly like to suggest for a solution to truncate the RSS output.
As for now, you can only output 100% of a given content.
When dealing with articles, we'd very much like to only send out an intro or smaller amount of the article and not the whole piece.
Wordpress has this switch in backend to let the user pick if they want to output 100% or only first piece (like 250 words) etc.
This way, we can use RSS to bring the users back to the site to finish reading the piece.
Would this be possible in a future update ?
Perhaps very simply:
RSS output (choose between)
* _____ words (fill in the number)
