    Hey Bob,

    Is it possible to post the full article from an RSS feed instead of the first x characters and hard embedding a Read More link in?

    Set the RSS Snippet Length to what ever your Max Article length setting is.

    Options >> AMS Options >> General Options >> RSS Snippet Length

    Just changed it to 9999 Bob and pulled in an import. It hasnt made any difference to the post size and still embed the Read More link o_O

    The RSS Snippet Length is for the RSS OUTPUT. I have NO IDEA what this"IMPORT" is that you are talking about. What "IMPORT" and why would the RSS OUTPUT snippet length have anything to do with an IMPORT SCRIPT. The IMPORT script would control that.

    Ive created an AMS registered feed to automate some article creation which works but want to post the full article and not embed links off to other sites.

    That function is for creating Articles (not threads). It will create an Article and if that article is in a category that is set to create an associated discussion thread, an associated discussion thraed is created based on the Article (not the RSS Feed).

    The FEED creates the ARTICLE. One of the Post Save actions in the Article DataWriter creates the associated discussion thread based on ARTICLE Content (not based on FEED content). The Thread Post Snippet Length setting (right above the RSS Snippet Length setting) is what controls the amount of characters is allowed for the Snippet on the discussion thread.

    btw, the Message Template field in the above image you posted is what is posting the URL in the ARTICLE (and being that its in the article, its going to be used as part of the snippet for the thread). Simpley remove that code and just leave {content}. Then set the Thread Post Snippet Length to a larger number so that more of the ARTICLE is posted in the associated discussion thread.
