Change your site's feed settings

To enable or disable the site feed(s) for your blog, first go to the Settings | Other tab.

Here, you can select how much of your content you want to syndicate. "Full" will put the entire content of each post in your site feed, while "Short" only includes an excerpt from the beginning of each post. Select "Until Jump Break" to show all post content before your jump break. The "None" option turns your site feed off entirely. For more advanced options, you can select "Custom."

When you select "Custom," you'll see options for three different types of feeds. Each option has the same "Full," "Short," and "None" setting choices.

  • Blog posts: This is the same as the original, "Allow Blog Feed" option.
  • Comment feed: This will contain all comments made on all posts on your blog.
  • Per-post comment feed: With this option, each individual post will have its own site feed, containing only its own comments.

If you've burned your post feed with FeedBurner, or used another service to process your feed, you will need to go to your blog's settings and complete the setup by redirecting your feed. To redirect your feed, just copy and past the feed URL you received from the service into the "Post Feed Redirect URL" section.

Notes:

  • Once you've enabled your site feeds, you may want to provide a way for your readers to find them. If the template you're using isn't displaying links to these files, you can add them in using the site feed template tags.
  • All site feeds are published in Atom 1.0 format. However, if you add ?alt=rss to the end of any site feed URL, you can get the same feed in RSS 2.0 format.
  • Feedburner has its own 'summary' setting which, if enabled, may affect the display of your feed for the Until Jump Break option. You can correct this by logging into Feedburner and disabling the Summary Burner option from the Optimize tab.
