RSS feeds

Postby antcw » Thu Mar 19, 2009 1:15 pm

I've just bought Screensaver Factory 5 Professional and am very pleased with it. Thank you!

I just have one question about the news feeds. Our company website has three RSS feeds:
- http://www.nexor.com/news.xml
- http://www.nexor.com/news_and_comment.xml
- http://www.nexor.com/comments.xml

They are all generated by the same tool (Drupal Views) and I can't see anything obviously different in the xml. However, http://www.nexor.com/news.xml is the only one that your screensaver will pick up. Is it something to do with the filename, or is there something else I should be doing?

I will check this. In the mean time you should check whether the generated feeds comply with RSS standards (include all required xml attributes and tags and no invalid symbols or tags). The RSS engine in Screensaver Factory is very particular about the correctness of the RSS XML code.

Thanks. I've run all three feeds through the W3C feed validation service and all were fine. There was a recommendation to include an atom:link - however this applied to all three, i.e. the news.xml that works, as well as the other two.
