Blogger, Atom, NetNewsWire, bug work-around

We found a bug after releasing the special Atom beta of NetNewsWire yesterday.

If a feed has summaries but no content, NetNewsWire ignores the summaries—and items display in NetNewsWire as titles only.

We’ve seen this so far with some Blogger weblogs. (To be clear: it’s not a Blogger bug.) Though we’ll fix the bug in a future release, in the meantime, if you have a Blogger weblog and you want to work around it, you can.

On the settings for your site’s feed, under Descriptions, choose Full instead of Short. Here’s a screen shot.
