RSS Feed no longer valid?
I've been using your Blizzard News rss feed displayed on my guild's web site using Carp. Worked great and suddenly starting yesterday I'm getting an error that the feed is not valid... and I can no longer open it up directly in my browser. Something get changed?

Thanks for providing it... just trying to figure out why it won't display. :)

Re: RSS Feed no longer valid?
Our feeds are still valid, nothing was changed. Go to this link and make sure you have the same URL that is on there, and that nothing has changed. If you are positive you didn't change anything either, you can contact Volon (this opens a PM) or Metziel VIA PM or e-mail

Volon is online now, maybe he might see this. :)

Thanks for the quick response! Something has changed. Plug those URLs into Looks like the problem is the invalid – - Valid html, not valid xml... Blizzard goof :)



This feed does not validate.

Re: RSS Feed no longer valid?
Turns out I made a whole slew of problems when I updated some database functions in the program. Those should be mostly fixed at this point.

I don't really know how to permenantly fix the problem, but for now, I removed the offending &ndash;. The feed should fix itself in about an hour, when it regenerates.

EDIT: I ran it through feedvalidator and complied with their wish for a GUID link. Should be all good now.
