For those who are interested, I’ve updated my full-text RSS 2.0 feed to include comments. To use this in Movable Type, open your template-editing screen. Click on “RSS 0.91 index”. Rename that to “RSS 2.0 index”. Replace the contents with
this file. The output filename should still be “index.xml” unless you have a good reason to change it to something else. You may want to change
lastn="10" to some other number–this shows the last 10 posts. The comments section is set off by blank lines, and can be tweaked.
Made a slight change to make the RSS feed friendly to foreign scripts: my template now uses the
tag, which I believe is new to MT 2.6. For this to make a difference, you need to be using MT 2.6, and edit your mt.cfg file: de-comment the line containing
set the appropriate charset (I’ve set mine to “utf-8”–unicode); also I think you need to de-comment the line
NoHTMLEntities 1. This only matters if you use non-Roman script (Japanese, Cyrillic, etc).
Fixed a few more minor things, including a link to extended entries (tip o’ the cap to David Nunez).
