Could anyone help me?
I have rss feed for my website but it is showing 10 full articles. I need, that in RSS feed would be shown only 10 titles of articles and only first paragraph of article. Please write the code, it would be great!

When you create a RSS feed you do something like this... (taken from the blog module)

$rss = new RSSFeed($children, $this->Link(), $project . " blog", "", "Title", "ParsedContent");

The last argument in that list points to a method on BlogEntry which produces the content. So say you want the RSS Feed to show the first paragraph you could change that new RSS Feed to something like...

$rss = new RSSFeed($children, $this->Link(), $project . " blog", "", "Title", "MyShortContent");

Then on whatever Page type you are making the RSS feed of (for example a RSS feed of latest NewsPages) you would open up the NewsPages.php file and write a MyShortContent Method in the main class - not the controller that goes something like

function MyShortContent() {
return $this->Content->FirstParagraph();

Which will return the first paragraph of text from Content. Hopefully something like that will work for you!

I can't understand...
I have page.php in which is rss feed.

The page.php source:

class Page extends SiteTree {
   static $db = array(
   'Date' => 'Date',
   'Author' => 'Text'

   static $has_one = array(

   static $icon = "themes/treeicons/news";

class Page_Controller extends ContentController {
      function project() {
      global $project;
       return $project;
   function init() {
      RSSFeed::linkToFeed($this->Link() . "rss", " - informacinis portalas");
   function rss() {
      $rss = new RSSFeed($this->Latest(), $this->Link(), " - informacinis portalas", " - informacinis portalas", "Title", "Content" , "Author");

   function Latest() {
      return DataObject::get("Page", "", "Created DESC", "", 10);



And I need that latest articles would be only from title and first paragraph of article...
