[resolved] RSS Comments feed will not validate because of pubdate (5 posts)

    Hello,

    My RSS comments feed does not validate. It is here: http://www.loutan.net/blog/comments/feed/

    And the error is:
    line 29, column 42: Implausible date: Tue, 30 Nov 2010 00:00:00 +0000 (7 occurrences) [help]

    <pubDate>Tue, 30 Nov 2010 00:00:00 +0000</pubDate>

    Except that the comments dates in the blog and in the database ARE correct, for example that one is 2006-08-28 23:06:37. Everything else works fine...

    Am I reading this incorrectly? The example you posted within the "pubDate" tags is most *certainly* not August 28, 2006. It says "Tuesday, November 2010". That's a little more than 4 years from now (in the future).

    Did you click on the "help" link for your feed? The solution for this issue is posted right there in that help link (you must see it, because you copied and pasted the link in your post.)

    Huuu, you do not seem to understand my problem:
    - I leave WordPress to take care of "producing" the feeds.
    - For some reason, a perfectly nice GMT date out of the db (2006-08-28 23:06:37) appears correctly in the blog itself, but is turned is something weird by wp-rss2.php, namely Tue, 30 Nov 2010 00:00:00 +0000
    - It is the reason for not validating, but I would rather understand why the feeds turns the normal date into that weird date
    (btw, I suspect some localisation reasons, since I have a french speaking wordpress...)

    Ah.

    Well, did you click on the link for the "help" file? It basically says that something has a clock that's set wrong. If it's *your* feed that's messing up the time, it could be your server's clock, it could be the time you have set in WordPress...

    I doubt that the time difference between, say, the US and France would make that much of a difference :)

    But other than that, I couldn't tell ya...sorry I can't help out more.

    All right. I found the answer by myself.
    For unknown reason, the new version of the comments feed behaved like the older version, so the answer found here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_Feeds is valid.
