PLEASE truncate Post Feed output?


Recommended Posts

I have a Forums Post Feed block on the front page of my website, but I notice that the Feed in fact displays entire forums posts.  This means that, depending on the length of the posts in the feed, if you have a Post Feed in a column it can end up completely imbalancing your site's splash page!

It would be a great idea if you truncated each post in the feed to, say, 5 or 8 lines with a Read More... link at the bottom.  This would not only economize space, but also encourage users to click through to the forum or post and engage more with the site.

In fact, you already do this with the Blog Entries feed, so it makes sense to extend this to Post Feeds as well.

Thanks for listening!
