My tantrum about the WordPress reader is in cyberspace for all to see. I'm going to leave it up, in hopes the WordPress people see it and it gives them gas, and sadness, much sadness.
This fix isn't perfect. What I wanted was a way for people to go directly to my website. I wanted them to see my cool wallpaper, and important sidebar data. I accomplished that much.
I also wanted them to be able to scroll through my posts. I haven't figured that out yet. So far they can at least find a single post and read it the way I intended them to see it. Here's what you do:
First get into the back of your WordPress site whatever way you prefer. I weaseled my way there through the old dashboard. (How much longer will that last? Beep beep boop coming soon.)
Find the tab that says, “Settings” and select it.
Scroll down to where it says “For each article in a feed, show” change it from the default setting of “Full text” to “Summary.”
What this does is places a direct link to your post at the bottom of your summary. Interested readers can now find their way directly to my site. They still can't get the scrolling site, but at least they get to see the site I designed.
