Hi,

I am parsing feed from http://feeds.feedburner.com/Commercial_LCD_Monitors. But while getting description of each post I got few lines and then it gets truncated with ending [...] characters.

eg. content of sample post

<p class="features_description">Stand out from the crowds with a higher level of professionalism with the L305 mobile data projector. The 3000:1 ANSI lumens and advanced 3-chip LCD technology delivers images that are of the highest quality, realistic and sharp. Colours are not only [...]

Can anyone explain what is the issue and possible resolution if any?

Thanks & Regards,
Amit Patel

This isn't in your hands. The site generates its RSS feed like that, any RSS client or API cannot modify the behavior of the feed...

Many sites don't include the full content in their feeds. It's probably part of a strategy to drive traffic to the actual web site.

Interesting; looking at the link you posted, it does indeed have more content where the results you posted has the ellipsis. Maybe ROME has an option that can be set that determines this behavior?

The page that you linked isn't an RSS feed itself. I clicked on the View Feed Xml on that site and in that the feeds have truncated content...
