    Hi,
    I noticed my feed stopped working so I checked with feedvalidator and it came up with two errors:

    length of 6674 exceeds the maximum allowable for itunes:summary of 4000
    itunes:summary should not contain HTML: ’

    My feed is at :
    http://deadaudio.com/?feed=podcast

    Thanks

    I fixed it by putting this in the template

    $content = htmlspecialchars($content);
    $content = preg_replace('(\&[a-z]+;)','',$content);
    $contnet = preg_replacE('(\&#\d+;)','',$content);
    $content = substr($content,0,3000);

    But, I don't know if there is a better way to do it

    Hi there,

    Are you sure you are using the latest version of the plugin (v1.4.4)? This issue has been fixed in the plugin since v1.3.1, so please check to see if you have updated to the latest version. If you have updated then please let me know on here and I will re-look at this and implement a further fix.

    Thanks,
    Hugh

    I am using version 1.5 and I am having the same error:

    " itunes:summary should not contain HTML: & "

    Here is the link to my feed, I am not able to submit to iTunes: http://connector.obssr.od.nih.gov/?feed=podcast&podcast_series=obssr-the-connector-podcast-series.

    That's odd because when I loko at your feed I can see that there is no HTML in your itunes:summary field. That being said, I am working har don improving the HTML encoding side of things and I will have a further fix out for this very soon.
