Maybe I'm the only one, but I subscribe to the forums in Google Reader, and all along, while Google Reader will grab the articles, the link provided to them is incorrect due to missing &'s.

So instead of something like:
www.wickededgeusa.com/index.php?option=c...=9&id=5952&Itemid=63
it's
www.wickededgeusa.com/index.php?option=c...d=5952Itemid=63#5952

Obviously incorrect.

I'm not sure, but it appears this may be due to some weird configuration with the RSS feed being redirected.

Is anyone else seeing this issue? I'd be happy to troubleshoot/diagnose further if needed/wanted.

Note the RSS feed fails validation:

validator.w3.org/appc/check.cgi?url=http...id%3D3%26Itemid%3D63

It would seem the missing &'s may be a bug with Google Reader dealing with malformed XML, but I'm not 100% confident on that. Attempting to curl the rss feed results in a 303 "See Other" which seems... odd. But maybe that's how IIS deals with basic redirects.

Hi,
I am looking into this issue. It is interesting, if you look at the actual feed, the link is correct. I am going to try a different feed reader and see what happens. I will keep you posted.

Thank you

Indeed.

I did find this: www.kunena.org/forum/4/2393-enhanced-kunena-rss-feed/15078 via google, but I don't have an account, so I can't read it.

I just looked for "kunena" and amp;.

There's this too: www.kunena.org/forum/159-K-17-Common-Que...-feed-is-not-working

Part of it may be just the fairly old version of Kunena that's being used. Looks like it's from 10/2010 or so. =/

Firefox doesn't show ANYTHING other than the forum title for the RSS feed. Having coded my own RSS feed generators previously, I know that if something doesn't pass that W3 validator, all kinds of weird crap can happen at the client end. I'm guessing that Line 19 error here is probably a good chunk of the issues.

lol. Figures Outlook would ignore the issues.

Do the links to the actual forum thread work in Outlook? Guess I can try Mac Mail.....
