RSS Descriptions

RSS Descriptions

Short, concise description of the idea
Any chance of getting the full text of posts in the description element of the RSS.

Full description of the idea
The new RSS feature is great, but it's just not quite finished. It needs to include the full text of a post in the elements. Preferably with entity encoded html left in. I think Brad has a patch ready to go to do this, but I'm turning blue as I hold my breath. I'm not really being a PITA, just too enthusiastic!!

An ordered list of benefits

  • Would make it easy to view a LiveJournaler's words in other packages such as Amphetadesk.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • RSS is not really useable yet as the title alone is often not much use at all.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Install the patch!
  • Tags: syndication, § implemented
    • Post a new comment
