I would like the option to truncate a specific feed via the feed settings page. This would be great for those few offending blogs that don’t truncate at all, and pass super long posts to their RSS feed. I could put something together in Yahoo Pipes, but it would be nice to have it built into NewsBlur.
lol…totally forgot I posted this until it turned up when I was about to submit it again. maybe a future release?
I did build in story truncation (find it under Preferences), but it’s all or nothing (or blurblogs only). Anybody else have interest in making this feed specific? Chime in.
hah…totally forgot I posted this. TwistedSifter specifically is really bad about posting the full story to their feed. i could see this living in the Site Settings. But if others aren’t bothered, then maybe not worth the time.
Yeah, this is a fine idea, but if nobody else wants it it’s going to be hard to justify the time. Although it wouldn’t even take all that long, I just want a few other people who want it.
man…these imore posts are the worst. not only is it long, but the thumbnails they use are actually 600x600px that end up being full size in the feed. http://www.imore.com/tvos-10 if only they used a consistent tag so it could be trained out of the feed.
