Just upgraded to WP 2.3. All OK apart from some minor Atom 1.0 feeds issues. The feeds were validated here, and DO validate as Atom 1.0 feeds:
The following issues came up:
1. TEXT/HTML MEDIA TYPE ERROR
My feed http://domain.com/wp/feed/atom/ has the following on line 13
<link rel=”alternate” type=”text/html” href=”http://domain.com/wp” />
Feed Validator thinks this media type shouldn’t be specified in Atom feeds.
2. SCRIPT TAG ERROR
Feed Validator thinks this may create problems with some Atom/RSS readers.
3. SELF-REFERENCE ERROR
I may be out on a limb here, but I thought as RSS 2.0 feeds could reference WP categories, the same could be done with the latest Atom 1.0 standard. So I’m specifying the following in header.php:
<link rel=”alternate” type=”application/atom+xml” title=”Atom 1.0 – Category: XYZ” href=”http://domain.com/wp/category/xyz/feed/atom/” />
Netnewswire and Safari read it just fine, but the self reference on line 15 of the feed, points back to the generic Atom feed not the category feed:
<link rel=”self” type=”application/atom+xml” href=”http://domain.com/wp/feed/atom/” />
FeedValidator picks up the error.
Am I expecting too much, doing something wrong, or is this a bug?
