I’m using Harp.io to run a blog – it’s default generator for RSS generates a blank
<item> without a title or description. Also, it looks like the import bypasses title validation and I have a post with no title which is hard to drill down to
Have hacked in a fix for the feed, but a few thoughts spring to mind.
- discourse import should not create posts from
<item>with blank titles
- when is the RSS feed polled by Discourse? I’m assuming its when the embed is called from the blog
- how do you initiate another import/update; ie. when you have corrected a blog post how do you force an update
- how is discourse determining the uniqueness of the blog post its importing? is this a hash of the URL? ie if I change the title but leave the URL the same will it simply update the original post
PS. should I be posting this sort of query on http://meta.discourse.org? i can’t find a place that seems suitable.
