How to include article summary in RSS file?
Squishdot Posted by Luke Tymowski on Wednesday May 16, 08:17PM, 2001
from the dept.
How do I include a post's summary in the RSS file?

The RSS spec allows each item to include: title; link; and description. The file included with Squishdot provides just the title and link. I would like to add the article's summary as well. I tried "striptags(showSummary)" The summary shows up but so does a lot of other text that ought not to be there. I also tried dtml-var showSummary but that did not work either. What am I doing wrong?

    actually, doing the following works: dtml-var showSummary wrapped in description tags exiting IE completely then asking for the file was the trick.
