Hello Dimitry,

Thanks for your quick reply.
Yes, you're right, the restriction seems to be at the RSS end. Several 
sites "crop" their titles/description there, fe:

Nothing to be done then!

Thanks again!


>> everything is fine except that both subheader and description ("short"
>> and "bodytext"-field) in tt_news gets cropped to 100 chars, ignoring the

>> many chars:"
>> As a result, both the subheader and description-field looks like this:
>> "Netbeheerders worden verplicht om duurzaam opgewekte elektriciteit met
>> voorrang over de netten te tr"
>> Do I miss something here? And why both fields (short, bodytext) are
>> cropped (subheader makes sense to me but description not)?
