Support » Plugin: PowerPress Podcasting plugin by Blubrry » itunes:summary too long causes XML error because the tag

  • Hello,

    Since few days the RSS feed of my podcast has several errors.

    in the itunes:summary, if the description has more than 4000 chars the text is truncated, but the close tag of CDATA are not in wright place.

    Example :

    <itunes:summary><![CDATA[Hello,
    
    Blablabla 4000 chars Youtube</a>, mon <a href="https://www.pinterest.fr/belledemain/boards/" target="_blank" rel="external n...]] noopener noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external"></itunes:summary>

    It should be here

    <itunes:summary><![CDATA[Hello,
    
    Blablabla 4000 chars Youtube</a>, mon <a href="https://www.pinterest.fr/belledemain/boards/" target="_blank" rel="external n... noopener noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external"> ]]> </itunes:summary>

    I have asked the Blubrry dev team to look at your question. A response will be posted here as soon as they’ve had a chance to do so.

    Here’s what the dev team had to say about your question: “I identified his server is using some sort of caching, if he is using a caching plugin or a service with his host then every step he takes during diagnosing he will need to clear the cache. His feed for example has been changed since August 29th.

    I double checked the code in PowerPress and anywhere we call the CDATA section we end it with ]]>, his feed does not have this which means something is manipulating the feed after PowerPress added the content.”

    This page has suggestions on how to diagnose this kind of situation:
