that's absolutely correct. While max. words or characters output is not configurable within the the product itself there are some workarounds posted on vb.org and elsewhere. From what I've seen you have to change external.php - I do not want to change vb's vanilla code .

Feedburner gives a variety of tools for managing RSS feeds off your site as well as third-party ones. I use it for more than just trimming vbulletin posts.

as far as disabling direct access to /forum/external.php, I believe, .htaccess can take of the things. configuration:

<Files external.php>
order allow,deny
deny from all
allow from 66.150.96
</Files>

I believe this is feedburner's subnet:

this is feedburner reading off my site (in the attached image).
