Update to my blog’s RSS feeds

May 28, 2003

One of my biggest complaints about how Movable Type handled this blog in its default configuration was the excerpting of the text. I wanted to see the entire contents of my post in the XML feed, since I like to read offline and find myself favoring blogs whose RSS feeds have the full text. Thanks to The Shifted Librarian (who got it from Big Pink Cookie who got it from Dive Into Mark), I’ve updated the former RSS 0.91 template to be RSS 2.0 with full text content. I kept the RSS 1.0 rdf file as excerpted entries. This way any of you readers who subscribe to the RSS feed can pick which format you want. Simply use “http://blackbox.cs.fit.edu/blog/andy/index.rdf” if you want excerpts and “http://blackbox.cs.fit.edu/blog/andy/index.xml” if you want full text.

If anyone’s curious, the direct link to the info at Dive Into Mark is http://diveintomark.org/archives/2002/09/26/rss_20_template.html.

    I can’t decide if I want to keep the excerpted feed, or if I should change it to the new one.

    I think I’ll go with the full one. Makes for easier reading.
