Please fix rss feed 7 Years, 6 Months ago  
rainy can you *please* do a few simple things to make the forum rss feed better?

the "Subject:" in front of the actual topic is not needed. And worse, the "Re:" is placed in the middle of the subject string; it's not needed either. Finally, please take the poster's name out of the subject. All these things kill threading!

the poster's name should be the Sender, and not "www.rainlendar.net - Forum".

thanks.

Done.

I did not understand the last point about the Sender though...

thanks!

the Sender/From is "www.rainlendar.net - Forum" and it should instead be "rainy" for example.

one last thing: can you not limit the Summary of the feeds? it's probably set to 255 chars, and instead of loading a web page, it's so much faster just to get the entire post in the summary as text.

ideally the summary would show up as simple html so quoting and links would remain.

calendar is so good there's not much to complain there ; D

hmm. the Date is not the date of the post on the web site, but instead the date the feed was downloaded, so that all date/times for a particular load are all the same - replies appear before the first post.

probably need to specifically set the date to be Post Date.
