The LDSHomeFeatures RSS Feed is broken

Postby jmaxwilson » Fri Aug 28, 2009 1:59 pm

The Home page features RSS feed

http://feeds.lds.org/ldsHomeFeatures

is broken and does not validate correctly.

http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Ffeeds.lds.org%2FldsHomeFeatures

line 53, column 869: XML parsing error: <unknown>:53:869: not well-formed (invalid token)

At first blush it appears to be caused by the embeded youtube video because the urls in the embed parameters are not properly escaped.

http://www.youtube.com/v/vIrGKB5nRKE&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0

should be

http://www.youtube.com/v/vIrGKB5nRKE&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0

but on further inspection it appears to be the fault of a IE specific <!--[if !lt IE 7]> tag in the content that is breaking the CDATA section. If the CDATA section were working correctly the embed urls shouldn't have to be escaped.

Partial fix

Thank you for this information.
It was passed on to me today, and I've put in a temporary fix that will get the RSS feed working appropriately again. I will try to make it cleaner during our next maintenance release.

It appears that the LDSTech RSS feed available from the Home page does not have all of the content that I would expect it to. For instance, it doesn't appear to have the two latest articles about the Talent Profile and the LDSAccount Migration and site redesign.
Many questions are already answered on the LDSTech wiki. Check it out!
