API: excerpt contains only &hellip since 1.15.3

Postby fistons » 13 Dec 2014, 22:09

Hi,

Since the last update, it seems that the getHeadlines method with show_excerpt=true returns an except = "&hellip".
Is this normal? Or there is a new behavior?

Thanks for your help

depending on excerpt length it always truncated like this

the last change was configurable length: https://github.com/gothfox/Tiny-Tiny-RS ... cb748b40ff

Hi,

Too bad there is not a default value for compatibility...
I have to update my application to reflect the new setting because some users complained about the "..." excerpt...

Tiny Reader RSS 1.3.2 for iOS is now available with the fix. :)

Yep, I know :)

The only problem is that iOS apps needs to pass the validation from Apple and sometimes it takes a very long time.... while users get stuck.
I don't know what happened, but this time the validation took only one day !

(BTW, my app is now available in Russian ;) )
