Site Feed Settings

Allow Blog Feed

Feeds are very important to be enabled for your blog to run everything smoothly. Some Blogger widgets like – Featured post, Recent Post, Related posts, etc. will not work until you allow your blog feed. Even your blog content can be exhibited on other websites by using this site feed.

Select how much of your content to show —

  • Full — Shows entire content of each post in your site feed.
  • Short — Shows an excerpt, approximately the first 400 characters.
  • Until Jump Break — Shows content before you use jump break.
  • None — Turns site feed off entirely and content will not be indexed by Google Blog Search.
  • Custom — Set advanced options for blog posts, comment feed and per-post comment feed.

See How it Works

To see how the site feed works, open the link below in your Browser new tab. Change “blogname” to your blog address.

Blogger Post Editor - Title Link and EnclosureLinks

  • Enclosure Links — Enclosure links are used to make podcasts, media files (audio, video etc.) in your posts playable in feeds like RSS and Atom. MIME types for most common file extensions are auto-detected by Blogger.

OpenID URL

Your current site URL is your OpenID URL. You can use it to sign into other OpenID enabled sites and they might appear here.
