Thanks for the quick response. Regarding the RSS feed; it could very well be that I'm simply expecting more in the way of content from the feed, rather than any fundamental issue with your implementation. Some time ago, I implemented a web server based RSS reader. This is my code for one such feed...

1<ul> 2 <?php 3 date_default_timezone_set('UTC'); 4 $dom = simplexml_load_file("https://blog.rapid7.com/rss/"); 5 echo "<hr>"; 6 foreach ($dom->channel->item as $item) 7 { 8 print "<li>"; 9 // print "<a href='{$item->link}'target='_blank'>Link</a>"; 10 $d = strtotime($item->pubDate); 11 echo "<h3>Publishing Date: " . date("d-m-Y",$d) . "</h3>"; 12 echo "<h3>Item Title: " . $item->title . "</h3>"; 13 // echo "<br>"; 14 echo "<h4>" . $item->description . "</h4>"; 15 //print "</a>"; 16 echo "<a href='{$item->link}'target='_blank'><b>Open Item in a new TAB</b></a>"; 17 print "</li>"; 18 echo "<hr>"; 19 } 20 ?> 21</ul>

... It's not that I think that you don't know what you're doing, as you clearly do; it's more likely than not, that I'm expecting too much from your RSS feed. The code here is a simple demonstration of what is fetched for each <item / channel / dom> which may or may not be of use to you.

So it looks like all you're grabbing is:

  1. date
  2. title
  3. description
  4. link

I have all of these in the RSS feed afaik. I'd be happy to add what's missing if you can pinpoint it. Other channels?

It's cool man; don't spend your time on it, thanks. Your feed does the minimum requirement, which is to provide a 'head-up' for site updates, which is just fine. I'm sure you've enough to keep you busy without having to service elements in the RSS feed. Keep up the good work and have a great weekend. Peace.
