I would like to remove the [...] from the RSS feed widget.

I have tried adding the following to functions:

function replace_ellipsis($text) {

$return = str_replace('[...]', '-', $text);
 return $return;
add_filter('get_the_excerpt', 'replace_ellipsis');

However, this does not affect the widget.

Any help?

have you tried to use 'the_excerpt_rss' filter? or … in the string replace? – Michael Jul 26 '12 at 13:48
@Micheal Should be an answer, not a comment. – kaiser Jul 26 '12 at 18:55
Yes I've tried that. – user18577 Jul 27 '12 at 12:18
