RSS is back!

RSS is back!

Thursday 05 November 2009 8:54:00 pm - 11 replies

This very important element was missing, and we are sorry for that. It now is up and running again. 4 feeds proposed currently.
Is something missing ? We happened to have a few sporadic strange behaviours in the global forum feed, would you mind making sure it works fine for you ?

Any feedback appreciated, please post in the issue tracker directly, as comments : http://issues.ez.no/15760

Great! Although I have to say that a title of "comment55610" is not very helpful. Maybe display the forum_topic title with a <-reply or something?

Edit: Do'h - never mind. It's already in the issue.

More RSS feeds were added now : one per forum topic. This makes things easier for people who just want to follow one of them. We of course kept the main one, called "All forums". Check it out !

Cheers!

A simple check: http://validator.w3.org/feed/chec...hare.ez.no%2Frss%2Ffeed%2Fall_forums reveals that the atom format generated is a wee bit wrong:

  • author field should have a subfield 'name'
  • http:/share.ez.no misses one slash char (2 occurrences)

hi Gaetano,

The URL-related issues were due to a misconfiguration in the feed generation. As to the <author> tag, the standard format is the one of an email address :

john.doe@email.com (John Doe)

But as many remarked, having the poster's email address in the feed is spam-prone. It was removed, at the cost of standard compliancy.

Cheers!

A bit puzzled now. The specification used by the feed validator you mentioned before is this one : http://validator.w3.org/feed/docs/rss2.html and no mention of this <name> tag as subtag of the <author> one. Aren't we confusing Atom and RSS?

Some useful disambiguation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atom...standard%29#Atom_compared_to_RSS_2.0

The standard used by eZ Publish when generating the feed in question is RSS 2.0, so i guess we are almost standard-compliant ( but for the <author> tags exact content ). But if you have a handler lying around somewhere handling Atom properly, i'll gladly set it up!

Thanks for the feedack Gaetano!

Duh, we were getting confused in fact - by the usage of the atom namespace in the rss feed - sorry.

About generating atom instead of rss: I think the current work of rebasing feed generation on ezc classes might do the trick one day...
