Feedwordpress: mapping comment in RSS feed to custom field

  • Hi all,

    I’m using Feedwordpress which is a fantastic plugin to pull in jobs from a job board. The location information for each job is located within a comment, and looks like this:

    <item>
    <title>
    <description>
    <!-- Comment #1 -->
    <!-- ABC Location=Vancouver -->
    </description>
    </item>

    Feedwordpress uses “XPath-like syntax” to access data elements from the feed to map to custom fields. For example I map title using $(title) and that works. I’m trying to access the location information using $(description/comment()[2]) but this results in the custom field remaining empty. Unfortunately there is not much documentation for this plugin and the plugin website has a lot of questions but no one is answering them, so I’ve come here :).

    Is my code to access the second comment wrong?
    If not, is there another method I could try?
    Does anyone know if feedwordpress allows you to access comments to map to custom fields?

    If anyone can point me in the right direction I would very much appreciate it!
