WordPress- Show Only Summary In Rss Feed

How to diplay only summary of articles in wordpress rss feed and not your full content.

Enabling your feed to be accessed by your visitors and other feed readers are really worthy for your wordpress blog traffics.

However one thing i notice when you display full content of your articles in feed, this visitors will read all of it in your feed but not in your website. I personally want that my subscriber read all my posts in my website, and not in my feed.

This tip will guide you how to display only summary of your post in your wordpress rss feed, and not the whole post article. Two steps to get it done.

1. “summary” is checked in your admin dashboard, see image.

If this works, then you’re done. But there are times when it doesn’t work this way, trust me, because it is my own experience after changing theme, checking that option didn’t help, and it shown the full content in my feed, if it also happens to you, there is one more settings to be done, which is can be found in your feedburner account.

2. Choose your feed, and look for “optimize” tab, scroll down to find “summary burner” click this and type in length of the words you want to display in your wordpress rss feed.And click “save”.

So from now on, only your article summary will be displayed in rss feed.
