    I want an RSS feed of the "MacRumors News" (the articles on the front page) but the articles always end after one or two sentences with a "read more" Look:

    Is there a way I can have it display the full article in RSS without the "read more?"

    Not unless there's another RSS feed I don't know about. The articles are truncated in the feed, not Safari.

    If someone does have a solution, I'd be interested as well.

    Google Reader does not truncate the feeds. So it is Safari.

    you could use Fluid and create a separate application for the MacRumors home page.

    Somebody posted this on another thread, and it seems to allow you to view a feed that contains full articles and pictures. This will be great on my iPhone because as it is I cannot read MacRumors articles offline since it only caches the part of the article that the feed initially shows.

    I should add while that link I posted works, it doesn't seem to be ideal because RSS news articles arrive late (I guess since that website has to follow the links and copy the article text). Too bad.

    MacRumors, please fix your RSS feed!

    As a moderator, I know the administrators are aware of the request.

    As a regular member with no knowledge of the administrators' decision related to this topic, I think it has to do with saving bandwidth and probably won't change.
