Hi, I'm an IMDb pro account holder and I (for some reason only just now) realised that our feed has stopped updating since Oct last year. Is there anything I can do to get it updating again? - https://pro.imdb.com/news/source/ns0000380?ref_=news_feed_modal_ns0000380

Thank you for your help,
Sam

The feed has issues because the excerpt is too short and all articles are being suppressed. The excerpt needs a minimum of 60, and ideally 150, words to be processed and displayed on the site.

Hi Trisha. Thank you for getting back to me. I see that most sites are using their full content as their excerpts on IMDb. Is that something that can be used from our feed?

I've created a fulltext feed if that would help our cause - https://roobla.com/feed/fulltext
