Reader Blake (that makes two Blakes I know of who read Skepchick!) wrote to tell me RSS feeds are getting cut off at the –more– tag, which we’ve started using in order to clean up the look of the home page and fit more posts on. I looked into it and it’s a stupid WordPress quirk that requires a special plug-in, which I’ve just installed. Those of you reading on RSS feeds should now be able to read everything,

including this. Let me know if it’s not working!

Oh, I also just installed two other plugins: an option to subscribe to comment feeds and a thing that should show similar posts to the one you’re reading. No clue how they work yet.

  1. Perhaps I should start looking into using an RSS reader instead of searching around the old fashioned way …

    I had an RSS button on my FireFox at my previous job, but it still required me to actually click an entry and open it in a window to read the entries/comments.

  2. Hey exarch, one of the nice things about Sage is that you can customize the CSS for it, so that all the feeds render whatever way you want. I happen to think I have the most beautiful blog in the history of the universe (I might be biased), so that's how I styled my RSS feeds (with even the header image and everything).

    Now it's like I have the world's best bloggers all guest-posting at UDoJ.

  3. Ha! I moseyed over here to complain about the cuts getting cut off in Google Reader, and here you've already gone and fixed it :) [God I'm so behind on blog reading. What sacrifices are made for Mystery Hunt!]
