Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Syndication Bug

Brent just let me know that there is a problem with my XML/RSS/RDF (whatever you call it) syndication. The problem is that the permalink URLs generated here use ampersands (&) to separate GET variables. XML requires you to escape ampersands by using the & entity. I’ll investigate a fix when I find time.

Update @ 15:20 — Took a quick look. Actually, it wasn’t the ampersands after all. The root of the problem was some variable changes that happened in the last upgrade of the base myPHPblog code. Fixed now. I’ll commit the fix to the myPHPblog CVS tree later.
