    First, to the developer, thanks for making this plugin; it helped a ton! Second, I'm having some trouble with my google news rss feed but every other feed looks fine. I don't think I'm smart enough to ask a great question, but if anyone has some tips for how to get my google feed cleaned up, that'd be great. It can be found here: http://www.socialjusticenow.org/category/googlenewssj/ --Sorry if someone else already asked this; I did look and didn't find anything.

    The feed can be found here: https://news.google.com/news/feeds?pz=1&cf=all&ned=us&hl=en&q=%22Social+Justice%22+equality&output=rss

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, I just went to your page but I'm not seeing the problem..what precisely is the problem with the way it looks?

    Thanks for doing that. All my feeds look perfect with my current settings, but my google feed seems to repeat the title and source at the beginning of each post. There is essentially a lot of duplicate information and a bit of wonky spacing that I haven't been able to get rid of in my google posts. I have the html/images stripped from the posts right now, which seems to help the formatting at bit, but the problem still persists. (When I leave the html/images in, the page jumps into some sort of recursive formatting error, not pretty.)

    So in summary, the duplicate info in the post is the main problem that I see, but again, all my other posts look great, it's just google--and even then only most google posts, not all. I'd really like to sort out if this is a google specific issue, and whether or not it can be fixed by some sort of google specific setting. Just for reference, here is one of my feeds that _is_ working perfectly thanks to your awesome plugin: http://www.socialjusticenow.org/category/aclunews/

    Thanks again!

    A friend suggested I try ifttt. It seems to be working ok, so you probably don't need to waste any time on me. Thanks again for your help!
