[resolved] RSS error (4 posts)

    If there's an error in a linked RSS feed using the Proper RSS widget, it stops the loading of the rest of the page the widget resides on. Beyond the obvious problems, it's also caused javascript errors on pages when some JS codes hooked to the wp_footer don't load.

    Can you implement a more graceful fail when there's an RSS error? (I've never dealt with coding for RSS feed, so I'm not sure how terrible this would be.)

    Thanks for an otherwise great plugin.

    Jimmy, sorry for the delay here, I don't get notices from this forum automatically.

    I don't think that should be a problem, though I've never seen it fail completely. Can you post the RSS feed you used?

    No worries on the delay.

    The feed is http://fitbottomedgirls.com/feed. We've had a couple types of instances with the RSS feed causing the plugin to fail. Once a JS sign-up form was put in a post, and that caused a fail. (Although there wasn't an actual RSS-error in the feed.) The other times, it *was* an RSS error due to a tinyMCE extension inserting some weird code at the end of a post.

    Thanks for your attention.

    The plugin should catch errors but it's probably better if it didn't fail completely or stopped the rest of the page loading. Let me see if we can do better error handling on the next version of the plugin. Currently, it looks like the feed is coming through OK.
