RSS Woes

Hi everyone. There is a bit of trouble with my RSS feeds. We moved some stuff around the other day and it broke something else, and when we went to fix it yesterday it seems to have truncated the posts in readers, which was not my intention. Hang on for a bit and we’ll fix it. Sorry for the trouble and thanks for letting me know it was happening.

    Yes, I noticed when my reader had 8 million posts from you! :D

    Well, I’ll click on the truncated post to say “yay!!!!” to that. :)

    These things happen. I just marked all of the entries I’d seen as read and called it a day when I saw it briefly this morning.

    It also seems like you’re now posting truncated items to the feeds rather than the whole post. ???

    Jen – Yes, I’m working to fix that.

    I was wondering what happened…

    I, for one, am just glad it wasn’t purposeful and you’re trying to fix it, half the other feeds I read seem to be doing the truncation on purpose to get you to come to their site :)

    Yay! Please do restore full feeds!

    For other sites that don’t give full feeds I use this tool to get their full feed in RSS:

    I noticed it as well, but Bloglines also seems well and truly hosed (or they’ve “improved” something that I can’t undo).

    Lynn – I used Bloglines as my reader for a long time and finally had to jump ship. It appears the new owners are, let’s just say, not primarily interested in being a RSS feed reader.

    It scared me a bit to find 200 unread RSS feeds right after I had finished reading most of the new entries. Just glad to know it was just a glitch and I don’t have another 100 entries on which to catch up.
