Full Rss Feed Text

Hi,

I would need to know if there is a possibility to make modifications in the any template to get the Full text of an article coming form an RssFeed instead of only the partial text?

Thanks

Put this

{rss:content:encoded}

Into the Body Template section of the Templates area of the RSS Feed. Just put it anywhere.

This is what ours looks like minus the asterik by url

Hi LOA,

I tried to add this {rss:content:encoded} but i still only receive the partial RSS Text and not the Full one. See screenshots and let me know if i did it correctly.

Thanks

Did you know you could add "&fulldesc=1" to the end of the rss link and get the full text of the threads? Only problem is it isn't formated at all including no paragraph breaks.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

Which means that you will have to manually edit and space break every entry that is posted. A major hassle and one I was working with until I finally found the way to post the blog and have it RSS correctly as the vB RSS Feed Manager system looks for coding as well, and not just copy the text as it looks effect.

I got my information from asking about it, and Jake referred me to this thread here:

http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=234216

I applied the variable Steve suggested and it worked for us, strangely on an ATOM feed which we shouldn't be able to use with any 3.6. Nonetheless if your RSS isn't RSS2 than that is why it might not work for you. As he states in that thread.

Both the options are available. You either put type=rss in the url or type=rss2 (or type=rss1). See the manual - External Data Provider

rss2 doesn't send the full news.

Does type=rss work? You aren't the original poster, so I'm confused about what it is you want. Are you just trying to get your own feed to work or trying to get a feed from another site?

I don't know that you will get the full news unless that is what the other site is sending out. But, most sites just send out a snippet of the news and you are supposed to provide a link back to the article.

If you go to our homepage, aggiefans.com, I created my own "rss news interface" where instead of taking you to a thread with a partial post of the text (which is basically useless), the title will actually link you to the news source (if you click it). If you click "comment" on it -- it will allow you to comment on the news article.

It'll then "Move" the thread to a general forum (out of the hidden news forum) to encourage more conversation. It's pretty cool...
