Test CSS Style Sheet for the supported RSS extension

  • wjf 19:30, 16 November 2007 (CST)
    • Tested: (wjf 08:01, 17 November 2007 (CST)) Tested extension while I developed the sample feed.
    • Fixed: (wjf 08:01, 17 November 2007 (CST)) warning thrown while handling zero-length feeds.
      • Checked for item count before display
    • Still pending: (wjf 08:01, 17 November 2007 (CST)) Magpie RSS library error if a non-RSS formatted feed is passed in
      • Can Magpie test feed for format before use?
      • SimplePie handles Atom as well as RSS
      • I may evaluate using it instead.
    • Fixed: (wjf 08:01, 17 November 2007 (CST)) general formatting problems
      • Rewrote the 'render feed item' code to use CSS tags rather than inline formatting

Test aggregation: does it handle multiple feeds?

To Do

  • Move all RSS style tag entries to a style sheet
  • Aggregate the CSS tags in the site's main.css style sheet: (main style sheet)
  • Get rid of the invalid feed warning message on a bad feed entry
  • Fix the formatting problem with the feed when embedded in a page
  • Look into limiting the length of individual entries
    • word count
    • character length
