    Hi,
    there was a bug in the initial 1.0 version where a ‘ ‘ (space) character around the ‘|’ would result in a bad URL lookup. That has since been fixed in version 1.0.1.

    The plugin has also been fixed on trunk for new downloads and on the 1.0.1 tag for folks to update their previously installed plugin.

    If you don’t update to version 1.0.1+ the work-around is to simply format your feed as follows:

    dental|http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/rss/dentistry.xml

    Did you get this to work? I’m having the same issue.
    My setting is for example, parents|feed://well.blogs.nytimes.com/feed/
    Then I added this to a page, [sp# parents]

    Gettting, “Failed to get content from ‘feed://well.blogs.nytimes.com/feed/'”

    I tried this same system for 3 urls but still doesn’t work. Love the plugin. Would love to get it to work. Thanks.

    Also have you worked with…. when clicking on the feed, the feeds full article would open on a new page. Trying to do this as well.

    Hi,
    The error is the same, but the root cause is different. You have to use http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/feed/ to get your feed content. When I try to put feed://well.blogs.nytimes.com/feed/ into Firefox or Chrome browsers, they both indicate that it is not a valid URL format. Internet Explorer appears to accept the format, so it is a client specific implementation.

    The “feed” protocol indicator is a browser/client side implementation for ease of use which the browser changes to http in the background. Many servers do not recognize the ‘feed’ protocol. I may implement a replace function to change ‘feed’ to ‘http’ in the next revision of syndicate press.

    I can add a link to the full article where the … is displayed. No big deal on this one.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I got it to work by removing the spaces.

    Thanks hranchFundi for your info. For some reason works for some links and not others. Also yes, if can click on the rss title/link and have the full article open in a new page on my site rather than linking to it’s website, would be great.

    Look forward to seeing if you can do this.

    Hi,
    I just delivered the 2 changes to the plugin repository as version 1.0.2.

    If you try to put in a URL with feed://, Syndicate Press will save it as http://. Syndicate Press places the article link on the … if the article is truncated by SP. Note that if the article length is truncated by the server and not by SP, you will not get the article link if you have SP configured to strip the HTML markup from the article.

    The easiest way and fastest to verify if an rss/atom/rdf news URL is valid is to put it into a browser and try to load it. I use chrome and firefox for this because Internet Explorer tends to do it’s own thing…

    Let me know how they work for you.

    Sorry little confused. How do I create the link/title on one of my pages to link to it’s own page on my website? (showing the full article) Don’t want the link to link off to the feeds site.

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    SP uses the links provided by the RSS/Atom/RDF feed publisher. These links typically point to the full article on the publishers website.

    The feed publisher has every right to not have their full article displayed on someone else’s site. This is why most feed publishers only place an abstract or a small portion of their full article in a news feed and then provide a link back to the publishers site to view the full article. Most publishers want viewers on their site so that they can earn advertising revenue.

    SP does not go out and download or store the full article for display on your site. SP provides feed syndication and aggregation functionality and does not attempt to re-purpose someone else’s copyrighted content onto your site. SP only displays what the publisher provides as their news feed.

    It is up to the user to make sure they are adhering to a publishers licensing rules for their articles and feed content. Different publishers have different feed and content licensing rules. One should consult those rules prior to syndicating a feed.

    Thanks so much and yes, I totally understand. Don’t want to steal anything. Just trying to do in a way where it makes sense to the reader. Plus yes realizing it’s up to the publisher although RSS Poster does display the whole article. Just not in the way I was thinking. Thanks so much for all your help.

    Will be a cool plugin — IF they ever get it to work.

    Hi Bob,
    Syndicate Press is installed on several thousand blogs and has been working just fine for more than 2 years. It has gone through significant beta testing and is well vetted on numerous blogs and with many news servers.

    Can you describe what problem you are having and perhaps we can figure out what your particular issue is?

    Thanks

    Same as the others on this thread. Failed!

    I read through the thread and your site and aside from a few dozen iterations of the url there seemed to be no resolution.

    Please post one of the feed URL’s that you are trying to use.

    It would also be helpful if you provided the exact text of the URL (and custom name) as you have defined it in the “List of RSS feeds…” text box.

    What version of Syndicate Press are you using? You can find the version at the bottom of the admin page.

    among others. I tried about a dozen of my sites and got the same thing. I used a few sites, then a single site. I stuck in the simplest code for all of them to show up, and then I added and deleted spaces ad nauseum. I spend over an hour on it .. that’s my threshold for pain .. and I then figured out a few ways to work around it. Turns out the work-around is easier to figure out than the plugin, and I’m satisfied with the results.

    Thanks.
