Re: No Bullshit! - Millionaire Maker Dan Kennedy uses S9Y

That proves 2 things: ⋅  S9Y simply runs, and runs, and runs, ... ⋅  Remember the old UNIX rules, "Don't upgrade as long as it runs,... " It's actually a business rule as well . Those people know it's not about having the latest release and newest gadgets (at least in t...

... Surely he doesn't think spammers are going to take 10 minutes to fill out a form, and we can use the timeout to eliminate them! That would just scare off users who took too long to say what they want. ... Could be true! The time-out might be a bigger hurdle than a Captcha. Let's say you open a ...

Re: ? Pingback Receiving, doesn't fetch content?

I know, pingbacks don't carry content. The default for $serendipity['pingbackFetchPageMaxLength'] == 200 Right, that will in almost all cases, not even get the complete <head>...</head>. I just set it to 20000, but no difference. So I am not quite sure, what this variable is supposed to do. I tested...

I'll feed it like in the example above via the Smarty functions and will use a custom field for a real excerpt (optional) with that great extended properties plugin.

Wrong <pubDate> in RSS Feed, TimeOffset != 0

The <pubDate> entities in the in RSS Feed (I only dealt with RSS2) is not correct, when TimeOffset in the Admin Panel is different from 0. Observed in S9Y V1.3.1. www.feedvalidator.org complains about a non-plausible date (it's in the future). Not an error, but a hick-up. (I tried yesterday. The ser...
