#3131 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Question about Changeset 4184 -- Or, request for enhancement

Description

I am using an SVN copy of Wordpress (2.1-alpha3-r4185) and think that my problem (described below) is associated with an "upgrade" made in Changeset 4184.

Anyway, I want to (and do) use the "more" quicktag. However, I also want to get "full text" (without the "more" quicktag) for my RSS feed -- yes, I have checked "Full Text" on the Reading tab of the Options pane....

Was Changeset 4184 designed to require the "full text" feed use the "more" quicktag?

Any chance we could make this optional. In other words, could we let the user choose to either "display" or "not display" the "more" quicktag in the full text feeds?

Note that prior to this changeset, the way one would put the "more" quicktag into the full feeds was to use the "Better Feed" plugin by Ozh. Now, it seems, people no longer get to choose.

I missed this discussion...and for that I am sorry.

But my earlier observation still stands -- if users do not want the text after the "more" quicktag to show up on the "full" feed, they can solve that with the "Better Feed" plugin by Ozh. It can be found here -- http://frenchfragfactory.net/ozh/my-projects/wordpress-plugin-better-feed-rss/

Even though these other forum members (in thread <a href="http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2582">#2582</a>) might call me "schitzo" in wanting to have a shorter front page yet longer full feeds, I don't think that I am the only one that wants this.

For example, I would bet money that Paul Stamatiou (http://paulstamatiou.com) agrees with me. He is one who uses "more" quicktags to shorten his front page but wants full feeds (even the part after the "more" quicktag).

For more evidence, of the "other view", I offer you this thread -- http://paulstamatiou.com/2006/09/04/partial-vs-full-rss-feeds/

In the meantime, I will exercise self-help and reverse out the changes made by Changeset 4184.

You can close this ticket if you want, but I encourage you to ask a wider audience or, someday, let the user decide on the "Options --> Reading" pane of the admin area.

Ryan, thanks for the quick response and, since I have not said it to you in the past --> thank you so much for all of your hard work making this such a wonderful platform. I see your name on SVN way too much to have not said thank you in the past. Thank you.

-- Jerry
