When I started playing with the RSS feeds, I noticed that the feed would truncate and then add a link at the end that said Continue Reading with an arrow. I tried for a few hours to remove this since it was not fitting in with what I was trying to accomplish in the layouts. It turns out that this is actually added by the theme itself to the RSS feed.
For the purpose of using a blog for RSS news feeds, I have been just using the default TwentyTen Theme. You can actually go into the theme and remove that annoying Continue Reading if you want.
Here is how:
- Edit the file: [wordpress directory]/wp-content/themes/twentyten/functions.php
- Do a search for "Continue Reading" (Normally around line 241)
- Comment out the link within the function that starts with return…
- Save the file
