Add exception for empty titles (1 post)

    When there is an empty string in a title of RSS article, your plugin shows empty line that is created by . Please insert an exception into your code to handle such a situation. There is one blog I have to follow, but it is on blogger and they obviously do not have a workaround for dummy users who forget to insert title of an article. I have made a workaround in your code, but I would like to follow your updates.

    My workaround:

    if ( $shorten_feedlink && $tit_c > $s_f_length) {
      $tit = br_w_r_t_shorten($item->get_title(),$s_f_length);
        echo 'href="'.$item->get_permalink().'">'.$tit.'</a>';
     } elseif ($item->get_title() != '') {
        echo 'href="'.$item->get_permalink().'">'.$item->get_title().'</a>';
     } else {
        echo 'href="'.$item->get_permalink().'">No title</a>';

    Default wordpress RSS widget handles it with generic replacement "Unknown" that is even in .mo files (I haven't been looking for a way how it does that).
