Help with this feed..


style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"> href="http://themicrosoftexperience.com/default.htm">Hillel points out href="http://broken.typepad.com/">a cool site making fun of bad design… I
find so many parallels in these kind of design issues and API design. style="mso-spacerun: yes"> Anyway, I was excited to see that the
site offers Xml Syndication, which I assumed was an RSS feed, but it is not.. in
a an “rdf” file… which looks like some type of Xml, but SharpReader doesn’t seem
to understand it… href="http://broken.typepad.com/b/index.rdf">http://broken.typepad.com/b/index.rdf

  1. RSS Bandit can subscribe to it fine and the feed validator says it’s valid so I suggest sending a bug report to Luke.

  2. In a quick visual inspection, it appears to be an RSS 1.0 feed, which is based on RDF.

  3. I dragged the link you posted into the address bar in SharpReader and it worked fine for me.
    Subscribed!

  4. As Dare said, RSSBandit (rssbandit.org) can read it fine.
    I’ve used both and have to say, RSSBandit wins by quite some way.
    Sharpreader has a few small advantages – but nothing you can’t live without.

    I’d like to get a week off work, just to help out on the RssBandit bandit project-

    Do employers ever offer such a thing as OpenSourceLeave?

    Worked fine in SharpReader for me – maybe you need the latest version?

    RDF is RSS 1.0. Sharpreader handles it well as Typepad by default offers RDF and I use typepad for my blog…:-)

    You can write your own extention to typepad to generate rss 2.0, which I have done, but then you need to be an typepad pro account for that…

    As others have said, it’s RSS 1.0 (guess why hardly anybody uses RSS 1.0).
    This probably isn’t helpful, but Syndirella (http://yole.ru/projects/syndirella/) handles it without even mentioning the barbarity of the format.
    I knew there was some reason why I put up with its idiosyncracies (that, and it’s written in C# and I can fiddle with it).

    SharpReader 0.9.2.1 adds this fine. Maybe it was just generating a bad feed at the time, give it another try …

    Ahh — must have just been a bad feed at the time — it seems to work now… thanks for the help!
