I'm trying to digest a self-hosted Wordpress blog, but the digest simply shows the title and then a couple blank lines until the "...read more". The documention says that the "description" should be there. Is this the same as the blog text? I don't see a description field when I compose a WordPress entry.

Only title (no post text) in digest4 posts
Again, based on the feed you linked to earlier, there are no descriptions in that feed for each item.. which is why this will be happening.
Hi, I am having the same problem. It worked fine when I had it setup for plain text but as soon as I changed to DESCRIPTION in the template I lost my descriptions altogether. I'm actually fine with the plain text because I use firefox, but in IE the text would appear with occasional funny characters instead of apostrophes or other punctuation. I figured changing it to read HTML would fix that, but apparently not. Any suggestions?

Change it back to what it was, and then fix the encoding of the page you're displaying the digest on. That was the cause of the weird symbols, etc, not the digest. There's code to fix the encoding of your page at the bottom of the Get Inclusion Page. The reason IE shows weird symbols is because it's bad at guessing the encoding and renders unusual characters incorrectly in many situations if it's not prompted by the encoding meta tag.
