Limit RSS feed post word count

Looks like Ghost CMS giving full post in RSS Feed. Is it possible to limit to few words along with read more URL?

Custom RSS is probably the best way to go. You could swap

<content:encoded><![CDATA[ {{content}} ]]></content:encoded>


<content:encoded><![CDATA[ {{excerpt}}<p>&nbsp;</p><p><a href="{{url absolute="true"}}">Continue reading...</a></p> ]]></content:encoded>

Alternatively, if you need more buttons and dials to tweak, check out FeedPress, which lets you do, among other things, truncate RSS feeds.

I had to go the custom route and use {{content words=“100”}} to limit the number of words.

The default feed in Ghost can get very UGLY, especially if you have inline ads etc. All of this included in the feed just looks horrible.
