[resolved] <media:content> tags and namespace in rss for WP 2.7? (6 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm struggling with an issue in rss now. I really wasn't able to find a quick solution, maybe 'cause I'm new to WP platform.

    When I make a post with an image in a blog created directly on wordpress there are tags and namespace added to rss feed I actually need 'cause of meta info:

    <media:content url="..." medium="image">
    <media:title type="html">some images</media:title>
    </media:content>

    xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/"

    Also RSS link in the bottom of page looks like:

    http://blog.wordpress.com/feed/

    However, I maintain another worpress blog which was installed as a distribution v.2.7 (was upgraded from 2.x.x ).

    The problem is, the media namespace and tags are not being added to rss when I add media content - it just renders html to cdata in content, that's it.

    also rss link looks like:

    http://blog.wordpress.com/?feed=rss2

    and http://blog.wordpress.com/feed doesn't work.

    I suppose there's some trick with config, but I'm not able to locate any info.

    Thank you.

    WordPress.com and your own self-hosted WordPress are two different things.

    If you have wordpress.com questions, you need to take them here:

    Well, I just realized they are complete different products.
    Is there any option to get more advanced rss feed for WP 2.7?

    I just need those media namespace tags to be added automatically or, as an alternative, an option to add custom rss tags to post. The reason is I need to parse rss and rss is limited by default in WP.

    I don't have access to the server code, so in fact can't edit scripts. Can it be done via dashboard or I need to look for some plugins?
