  • I am running the flickrRSS plugin, and in the course of debugging an issue with it I noticed that the MagpieRSS class is now returning the $rss object with all of the HTML stripped from the title and description elements in the $items array. I have looked back through Trac and cannot figure out where or how this change came about. Does anyone have any insight, or know of a flag that can be set to re-enable full HTML output?

  • I am noticing this happens on the Dashboard too. After talking with the developer of FlickrRSS, he says it is a hosting issue. I have never come across this before 2.7, so is anyone aware of a change in the implementation of MagpieRSS or any of the content filters it uses?

    I have a similar issue using fetch_rss in a different code base other than wordpress. Did you find a solution to this problem. Will highly appreciate if you can post the way you solved it.

    Thanks!
