Full description of the idea
Currently, LiveJournal feeds display the whole post as the summary. The summary should be either a user-created summary, or a computer generated excerpt without HTML tags.
- Less processing time for Aggregators.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
- More work on The LJ side of things.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
- Psuedo-code example:
if ( user doesn't write a summary )
Make the summary the first X words of the post;
Remove the HTML ( aside from links, I suppose. )
