WP RSS Multi Importer
Export RSS: cutting UTF-8 description error, and pubdate on the local language (3 posts)

    Export generates RSS in UTF-8 but it probably cuts brief text in description not as UTF-8.

    Example: http://sdgi.ru/?feed=regionalnews
    Item with the link "http://sdgi.ru/blog/2012/12/27/803/"
    Symbol 291 of description line: " СЌРєР...

    Keep on reading: "
    Last "Р" before "..." is the first byte of multibyte symbol. And it has been cut on the first byte.

    One more error with exporting RSS:
    Pubdates are generated on Russian: "<pubdate>Чт, Дек 27, 2012</pubdate>".
    I think it should be formatted like this: "<pubDate>Thu, 27 Dec 2012 05:38:12 +0000</pubDate>" (even if the site is in Russian).

    Please help to make correct rss export.
    Thank you.

    if you go into the rss_feed.php file, you can make the changes if you know a bit of coding...the feed has been set to 500 characters, but this can be easily changed. Let me know if you don't know how to do this (by the way, I haven't been working on this feature for a number of months since few people use it).

    Such an unexpendable feature is unclaimed... Thank you for it. I'll look at it and probably propose a fix. I just thought that my own changes will be always attcked by plugin updates. :)
