What's up with my RSS Feed

Post by huntersa » Thu Nov 13, 2003 2:00 pm

I am using Awasu to monitor some RSS feeds that I am generating.

This particular one has me stumped and not sure what i have done wrong.

The summary shows the same information for each entry - 4826 - even though each entry looks OK in the detail window below.

Here is what it looks like: http://www.sproingle.com/awasu.jpg

and here is the actual feed I am generating:
http://www.sproingle.com/awasu.txt

Can someone point me in the right direction please.

Thanks.

Awasu currently has a bit of trouble if items don't have an identifying ID. It looks for a GUID or link but since your feed items have niether, Awasu is getting a bit confused.

This will be rectified when we start archiving feed items (in the New Year) and I'll add something to the next beta (next week) so that it uses the title if it has to. For the moment, the workaround is to either add a different link to each feed item or a GUID (not valid 1.0, I know, but Awasu is very forgiving in that respect). The GUID is just an arbitrary identifying string so just set it to be the same as the title and it works.
