Ok, I'm trying to figure this one out. I have an atom feed:

http://www.americanpapist.com/atom.xml

It contains all of the content I want, as the post content is in the XML. But when I use feeds2html it tries to parse the links and go to the actual posts, which results in an attempt to download all the images, etc.

I know I can parse out some of that in the recipe, but it seems pointless if the content I want is in the XML. Plus, this particular blog has lots of weird HTML and it's been a pain to get to look the way I want.

Is there a way to tell the recipe not to traverse links?

Perfect! I will have to separate out some of these blogs I subscribe to, but that works great. Thanks!

One more question for you guys. This feed is giving me a hard time. I see the embedded content but when I run it through with the parameter you specified, I don't get any content at all, just the dates of the posts:
