But adding it as a Firefox Live Bookmark results in no headlines listed and the entry (Empty) in Firefox. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit Daily Wireless.Org 2. Add RSS 1.0 feed from web site 3. Check Live Bookmark in Firefox Actual Results: Firefox correctly displays green file folder, indicating the link is an RSS feed. However, it also shows (Empty) as the feed contents vs. the actual feed contents. Expected Results: List the actual feed contents. Compare adding this feed in the Sage RSS reader for Firefox to see the desired results.
The PHP-ness doesn't matter to us, but unlike virtually all other RSS readers, we actually use the RDF in RSS 1.0, so we see people's errors there. In the /channel/items/rdf:Seq/ they are using URLs that start http://dailywireless.org/modules.php while the individual /item[rdf:about] URLs start http://dailywireless.org//modules.php with a double-slash. As far as RDF is concerned, the channel claims it consists of ten items that don't actually exist in the file.
Left comment and link to bug on the site's feedback form.
I've taken out the extra slash. firefox is happy with the RSS feed now. Thank you very much!!
Don, thanks for fixing it! Brian, thanks for reporting it! FIXED.
