Side Note…

When I was tweaking my XML using the Dive in to Mark template information, I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t getting full posts like Chris does on his feed. Then I looked at the code. Duh… be sure to change the description line from MTEntryExcerpt to MTEntryBody if you want to serve up full feeds. My head still hurts from where I smacked it earlier.

One question though – how does that affect people using things like NetNewsWire, where it reads the CDATA information instead of the description? Or is in addition to the description?

While I’m on the topic of fixing things, can anyone find the code that prevents Dawn from leaving comments on my site while using the Safari browser? Since I don’t have Safari, being a Windows user, I can’t really debug it myself.

hmm… just tried to leave a test comment in safari and the whole thing crashed on me… just sat there vforever and ever.. now trying to test it on Mozilla (since I think safari is based on mozilla)

Anyway, here’s the comment I wanted to leave:
I think its the processing.php… safari doesn’t seem to like it… but I don’t know enough about safari to know why… if you talk to Phil, make sure you show him what’s on that page… maybe it’s the “onLoad” thingy in the body tag that’s on that page…

I tried to leave another comment just to see if it was better, but Safari crashed. Then I tried Mozilla, and it wouldn’t open up the comments window. So I had to resort to IE…blech! But you’re so sweet for trying to fix it for me 🙂

Have You Changed Your MT RSS Feed Yet? Carol Blogs: ‘One of the reasons it took me so long to get on the RSS bandwagon was because I didn’t like what the RSS format was doing to my content, removing it from its visual and thematic context.
