    Hey everyone,
    As my University exams are on head, I am not getting enough time to prepare for my next guide on converting summary feeds to full feeds.
    While, I am tackling with my examinations, I am providing here a way to convert them.

    Go to this Yahoo Pipe:
    http://pipes.yahoo.com/rudemaudlin/bbc_news_full_feed

    The default values generate a feed that converts BBC news' summary feed to full feed and extracts 4 of the feed items.

    Things you should know, before using this pipe:
    Number of feed items needed : Input the required feed items you need in the resulting full feed.
    Start Match and End match: This should contain the values which enclose the article on the main HTML page, where the summary feeds leads to.



    How to find Start Match and End Match:
    Just go to the main article page of the feed item. Now have a look at the HTML source, and find a value (can be HTML codes, comments, anything) that preceeds the article body. This will be the START Match, and do the same with END match.


    If you have any queries, let me know.
    The pipe is made by myself, and hence, i will expect a proper credit if you use it. ;)
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 10

    I couldn't get on with the echodittolabs script. I found one from FiveFilters that is better, but still not perfect. Posted it here:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blogging/136802-rss-summary-full-text-script.html

    The guy who made it says custom start/end tags are probably going to happen in the next version, so then it'll be competition for Yahoo's Pipes, but without the brain-damage.
