However only in some cases are the GUID elements valid URLS (many contain the @ symbol). Based on the RSS 2.0 Specification (http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/tech/rss), the GUID element of an RSS 2.0 feed is only a valid URL if the 'isPermaLink="true"' attribute is specified. The primary purpose of the GUID is to provide a unique identifier. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Create a Livebook mark to http://planet.gentoo.org/rss20.xml 2.Try accessing several items of the live bookmark. Many of these links will not load properly because the GUID used for a link is not a valid URL (nor does it have to be based on the spec) Actual Results: Many GUIDs at http://planet.gentoo.org/rss20.xml contain an @ symbol. This is invalid in URLs. Expected Results: Live bookmarks should only treat GUIDs as URLs if the 'isPermaLink="true"' attribute of the GUID element is specified. Otherwise the Link element should be used.
This is within the 1.5.0.x branch. Forgot to add that info...
Version: unspecified → 1.5.0.x Branch
Unfortunately, you have to read every single word of http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/tech/rss#ltguidgtSubelementOfLtitemgt including "its default value is true" - <guid> == <guid isPermaLink="true"> Please evangelize them to update to the current 1.0 branch that ought to be a release if Jeff would ever get to it, assuming the template is fixed for that, or just to add a |isPermaLink="false"| in their RSS 2.0 template. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 260918 ***
