Feed Settings

To ensure your posts are published on OverlandSphere.com please ensure your feed is set to provide the Full feed rather than an excerpt.

By default most blogs feed settings publish the last 10 posts, if you wish us to pick up more than this say the last 20 or 30, you can simply change your feed settings as detailed below.

If you are unsure how to check whether you feed setting set correctly please follow the instructions below: (if you use site a site other tan word press or blogger please contact as and we will be happy to assist you in checking your settings)

WordPress

To enable or disable the site feed(s) for your blog, first go to   Feed Settings on the left hand side menu

Next to  Feed Settings

You will then see the following:

 Feed Settings

 

Highlighted above are the two setting you need to check,

First is the number of posts your feed shows, you can change this to any number, however be aware if the number is too high it can cause your feed to crash. We therefore recommend that you temporally change this to say 50, so that we can import your last 50 posts and then change it back to 10 or 20.

The next settings show whether you feed is set to provide the full text of just an except, please ensure sure this is set to the “Full text”

Blogger

To enable or disable the site feed(s) for your blog, first go to the Settings | Other tab.

Here, you can select how much of your content you want to syndicate. “Full” will put the entire content of each post in your site feed, while “Short” only includes an excerpt from the beginning of each post. Select “Until Jump Break” to show all post content before your jump break. The “None” option turns your site feed off entirely. For more advanced options, you can select “Custom.”

 Feed Settings

 

When you select “Custom,” you’ll see options for three different types of feeds. Each option has the same “Full,” “Short,” and “None” setting choices. Please ensure you Blog Posts feed is set to Full.

  • Blog posts: This is the same as the original, “Allow Blog Feed” option.
  • Comment feed: This will contain all comments made on all posts on your blog.
  • Per-post comment feed: With this option, each individual post will have its own site feed, containing only its own comments.

Notes:

  • Once you’ve enabled your site feeds, you may want to provide a way for your readers to find them. If the template you’re using isn’t displaying links to these files, you can add them in using the site feed template tags.
  • All site feeds are published in Atom 1.0 format. However, if you add ?alt=rss to the end of any site feed URL, you can get the same feed in RSS 2.0 format.
  • Feedburner has its own ‘summary’ setting which, if enabled, may affect the display of your feed for the Until Jump Break option. You can correct this by logging into Feedburner and disabling the Summary Burner option from the Optimize tab.
