RSS feed post limits
This is something that both annoys me and and yet I can understand its reason for existing. Have you ever subscribed to an RSS feed and its limited to only a few posts/items (lets say 15 is a standard)? I can certainly understand the need to limit RSS feeds content, there are plenty of reasons why a reasonable number for the history limit is a good idea. However, 15 is a bit low, especially on sites that offer news or updates. I recently subscribed to a feed that had posts of a humorous nature, and it limtied me to the last 15 entries. If I want to see more of the history, I have to go to their website. 15 is also a low number, for a site that may post a few times as week, it won’t take long and I’ll start to miss posts if I don’t frequently check that feed. On my blog, I allow the last 100 posts to be downloaded, and don’t mis-read me here, that is way too high, especially for a personal blog. I’d suggest something like 25 or higher for personal feeds, 50 or higher for a site that posts a few times as week in any category, and more if the site posts many times a week, or even per day.
