[resolved] Feed Validation broken by Topic Entry (3 posts)

    If a sermon topic is entered using the create sermon form and it contains a space or & then it breaks the feed validation.

    [Open Doors] fails
    [Open_Doors] works

    I suggest you improve input validation.

    I just checked into this as we use topics with spaces but it does not break the feel validation. For me, it says "Congratulations! This is a valid RSS feed." but then recommends commas to separate keywords to work with the widest range of feed readers. However, since the target of this feed is iTunes and iTunes allows phrases as keywords, it's not really an applicable recommendation in my opinion.

    Also, there is no input validation that can be improved because it uses standard WordPress tagging for sermon topics. Really, the only option would be to break down the topics when generating the feed and have "Open, Doors" be the keywords but that does not really fit the goal of finding it in iTunes since you can search for phrases in iTunes (and most if not all modern RSS and podcast readers).

    This will be fixed in the 1.9 release out by next week. Podcasts will get a big upgrade!
