Support » Plugin: WP RSS Aggregator » Item author not being saved

    There is a problem with wp-rss-aggregator feed importing. The ‘author’ feed item data are present in the feed and they are supposed to hold email address. The problem is that the plugin translates it to SimplePie object that have 3 properties (name, surname and email). In the code for feed-importing.php (line 595) checks if item has author and then updates metadata with method $author->get_name(). The problem is that there is an empty value in it! The only property that is actually filled is ’email’. Changing method call to $author->get_email() solves the problem. Please check if the original code behaves as it should – maybe there is something with processing/applying filters for the author element.

    I cannot share it as this error was discovered on internal server’s of my company so there is no way to show it to public. But the issue is simple and I’ve described it fully in my first post.

    Hi,

    In that case, I would recommend you to copy and paste the xml feed content somewhere and share the link with me. I will need to check the feed myself to come to a conclusion.

    Hi,

    I compared the feed you have shared with the Mashable feed and I can see that it contains author name in the <dc:creator> tag same as the feed you have shared.

    Not sure what is wrong here. Or have I misunderstood something ?

    RSS 2.0 Spec – as You can see this is not part of the RSS specification, and I assume pugin should at first be compatible with it.

    Hi,

    I am not sure if I completely understand your last message. Can you elaborate a bit ?

    Regards
