iJournal, LiveJournal and RSS feeds...

Okay, I’ve got a FREE account with LiveJournal and I use iJournal to update it. I went to http://myrss.com/ and tried to Syndicate my LiveJournal for News readers (my feed) but when the feed came back, it listed the “Current Mood” as the headline. Once, the “Leave a Comment” portion of the entry was the only Headline. Out of thirteen posts, only 3 came back with a “headline” that was correct (or that matched the headline that I put in the subject line).

Is this an iJournal defect in not formatting the post the same way adding posts from the LiveJournal website would? or is this a defect in LiveJournal, in the way it’s posts are formatted? or is this something that I might have done?

Does anyone have any familiarity with LiveJournal, iJournal and RSS feeds?

Thanks, up front.

Well, this might offer some insight:
From http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=149 :

"For Free Accounts, only the subject (when present), the first few words of the entry, and a link to the entry will be contained in the feed.

For Paid, Permanent, and Early Adopter accounts, feeds include the subject (when present), the full text of the entry, and a link to the entry. (See http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=131 for more information on the benefits of paid accounts.)"

Re: Well, this might offer some insight:
My actual problem was that I had used another RSS service. Through the FAQ, I page-searched for "RSS" and found that all LiveJournals have an RSS feed.

Found at:

I have it fixed now... Thanks!

Re: Well, this might offer some insight:
Yeah, that's the one I linked to. :)

That page also says that free feeds don't offer the full content of the posts.

Glad you fixed it, though. :)
