[resolved] MORE tag is stripped - a mistake? (4 posts)

    MORE <!--more--> tag is stripped from the text when it is sent out to the feed. It would be more convenient to have it present; then the author on the receiving side can decide, whether to use it or not.

    it doesn't surprise me that through all the controlling process htmlspecialchars, strip_tag, urlencode the comments are striped out from the feed and it takes sense.

    If you figure it out, it can add invisible text to the feed aggregator websites that the final user doesn't want to have.

    if you have a suggestion for something specific we can talk about it.
    Thanks for your comment.

    Yes, actually, I do have a suggestion :-)

    I believe that sending <!--more--> in the feed text is reasonable - it substitutes the excerpt most of the times. In my opinion, it is good to strip the tag (or just ignore it) during the import, if user chooses to do so in the "options" tab. It will be way easier to make excerpts on a receiving side.

    I've removed the restriction on placing comments on the description.

    The validator function that handle this restriction is on FeedValidator.php:1110 in
    function stripSpecificHTMLtags() where you can leave or strip the tags you want.
    For security reason, I would leave those restriction if you syndicate to unknown events sources.

    So in the next release the comments will be by default, leaved as they are if they are present.
