RSS/Atom Feed Problems, please share your comments.


Yea the feeds sort of broken. The new system (Drupal 4.5) doesn't have native support for Atom, RSS1 and RSS2 feeds yet. I had to find a third party module to support RSS1/RSS2/Atom feeds.

I tweaked the feeds a little more today. In particular the multiple items coming up if you're using RSS2 has been fixed. Items would come up multiple times if they were filed into multiple categories. I removed the categories tag out of the RSS2 feed and that fixed the problem.

For the best experience I would recommend using the RSS 0.92 feed since it provides the best data because it is part of drupal core.

Please share your comments. Thanks.

Newbies Beware! Not so good advice...

Thanks to Mike for sending in this WTF on a tutorial about PHP and MySQL security. Every PHP developer should know about the hazards of SQL injection. In fact it is important enough to be an offical part of the PHP documentation.

Perhaps the author who wrote this tutorial should have read the manual before declaring that PHP and MySQL doesn't allow SQL injection vulnerabilities any more and providing some pretty moot examples. Here is an excerpt from the article that describes how SQL Injections can happen.
