Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: RSS Feed Length and Image in Lars Blogger

Posted by Andrew Grumet on
Yo Carl.  If you're willing to edit code, search for the string "truncate_len" in packages/lars-blogger/tcl/rss-procs.tcl.  You want to change the line that looks like this

set truncate_len 100


set truncate_len 500

We probably want to turn this into a package parameter.

Thanks Andrew,

I went and edited the code and restarted the server. Worked fine, but in the process I discovered that images in an entry are not included in the generated feeds 😟.

Just noticed that Lars added it as a parameter that can now be set using the admin UI (now all I have to do is update my server).

(Thanks Lars)

As for the feed image, that was MUCH easier than expected... it turned out it was already a parameter in the admin interface:  http://openacs.based/blog/admin/
