RSS Feed creation

Postby Aaa » Wed Apr 19, 2006 6:10 am

Hey all

I have created a feed for RSS with coranto as below and all is good (link below too)

Link to forum topic:

Link to feed: ... erview.xml

I’ve been having some issues with characters in the feeds – they are declaring (through omission) the character encoding of the file as UTF-8 but it is actually ISO-8859-1.

The feed is just missing an attribute on the XML tag but can any one tell me what it is thats missing or how to fix this?

thanks :)

I don't know off hand but will have a look.

FWIW your feed is strictly invalid as it declares itself as being 'RSS 0.91' yet has all sorts of tags that aren't part of that standard.
Code: Select all
1.  Undefined item element: artist  11 0
2.  Undefined item element: interview  12 0
3.  Undefined item element: biography  13 0
4.  Undefined item element: website  14 0
5.  Undefined item element: imageURL  15 0
6.  pubDate must be an RFC-822 date  16 33
7.  item must contain either title or description  17 0
8.  XML Parsing error: <unknown>:209:3117: no element found  209 3117
(The validation tool I used is here)

I'll have a look for the other data...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

...looks to be what you need.

Try RSS Feed Editor by ExtraLabs. This is one of the best programs for doing RSS feeds that I've seen. Very userful...

If you are using Coranto 1.24 you can try the Feedbuilder Addon.

If you want to use the methods in the discussion you cited you need to read some more about the RSS standard and edit your Coranto style accordingly.
