[Plugin: podPress] Podpress Invalid Feed Issue Using 8.8.3 (3 posts)

    I am using the 8.8.3 version of Podpress with my podcast, and I am getting an invalid feed generated. Specifically, the feed validator says

    XML parsing error: <unknown>:27:22: not well-formed (invalid token) [help]

    <category>Religion & Spirituality</category>

    and there is a red carret under the o in category. I am using http://www.feedvalidator.org to test my feed.

    My feed is http://allaboutcslewis.com/?feed=podcast

    Any assistance would be most welcome

    Update: I have been able to get around this error by removing the ampersand "&" from Religion & Spirituality and replacing it with the word "and". This change was made in the Feed/Itunes Settings page of Podpress under the RSS Category heading. Originally I had copied the phrase from the iTunes setting, which still is valid.

    Thanks for the report!

    Your observation is right. This "RSS Category" input field (and other input fields of podPress, too) has problems with these special characters.

    That will probably be the next thing I'm going to engage.
