RSS feed - no description?

    I just noticed that the RSS feeds here don't serve a description, so the thread text isn't shown.
    A small teaser, the first 100-150 characters e.g. would be nice.

    Atm only thread title, author and pubDate are provided.

    Is the option "News Feed Message Snippet Maximum Length" not configured on this forums or am I missing something...?

    That's correct, the current implementation only allows for thread titles, no content.

    Any update on this? It is impossible to follow XenForo forums with the RSS reading software without having a description field.

    @Chris Deeming you seem to be all over the feeder stuff, could you possibly tell me whats the best way if any to change the {content} in the feed template to use snippet or something? I just want an excerpt of the content but right now I'm getting entire blog contents.
