I post lengthy (1000+ words) articles on my SquareSpace site weekly. I have it linked up to MailChimp so that when something new appears on the SquareSpace site, it gets emailed by MailChimp to the relevant audience, using the RSS feed system. This all works fine.

In MailChimp, when you put the merge tage RSSITEM:CONTENT into the email structure, it's supposed to pick up an excerpt of the post, defaulting to 500 words. In fact, it just sends the whole thing, no matter how long. I have searched online and I am not the only person to have this problem, nor have I seen much indication that anyone's found much of a solution.

While I work on that end of things, however, it seems to me that maybe I can resolve it on the SquareSpace end.

In the Options pane for each post, I can create an excerpt manually. If I could send this through MailChimp, with their "read on..." link going back to the post itself, that'd solve my problems and be much more readable anyway. But MailChimp does not have--or doesn't indicate, anyway, an RSS merge tag that will pick up the Excerpt text from SquareSpace.

Can anyone suggest some code which I can substitute for RSSITEM:CONTENT in MailChimp to pick up the Excerpt instead of the total body text?

Thank you!
