I have a blog at serola.wordpress.com where I added RSS widget to serola.multiply.com. Then I found that WordPress seems to support only link-tags on imported RSS-feeds. The result is that Worpress shows only the news titles but I cannot open them. The link is missing.
I had a debate on this with Multiply’s admin and they reffered to RSS specifications at blogs.law.harvard.edu/tech/rss where it is said:
“In some systems, link is a permalink to a weblog item. However, in other systems, each item is a synopsis of a longer article, link points to the article, and guid is the permalink to the weblog entry. In all cases, it’s recommended that you provide the guid, and if possible make it a permalink. This enables aggregators to not repeat items, even if there have been editing changes.” (Technology at Harvard Law, Internet technology hosted by Berkman Center, RSS 2.0 Specification.)
I am not an expert but I just want to inform you what is the possible reason why WordPress shows some of the imported news titles without links on RSS widgets.
And if this is not the right forum for this then please, someone? Let me know to whom should I direct this?
