RSS-Syndication help please
Posted: Wed Jun 01, 2005 8:55 pm
Could someone help me please.
In the RSS-Syndication output there is Author and Comments - neither of these are required by me - how do I remove them from the feed?
I have searched through the files and checked on the site but nothing leaps out to me where I edit the output.
Code: Select all
These are the unwanted sections.
Any help would be appreciated - Thanks.

Glad I'm not alone in not knowing - asking silly questions is so embarrasing.

Please have a look at your ./rss.php
, I think there you can delete the entries that are creating these tags

Thanks Oliver for your reply.
Already gone through this file so many times
I am boggeyed.
Can't work out what does what.

The short answer is: You do not want to delete those tags.
They are very helpful for users. Especially I am using the features of those tags often, so I stubbornly refuse to tell you where to remove it.
For example "<author>" is required to get a valid RSS feed.

Thanks for your reply Gavin even if you are being over protective.
As I have no comments on my site why should I have a link to nothing?
Even if you think the Author tag is important where can I remove the email address followed by my nick and replace it with something more relevant.

You can select to not show Email adresse within the Spamblock plugin. And I think the RSS sidebar plugin also has some directives for that.
If you have no comments on your site, well, then I can live with it. Have a look at include/functions_entries.inc.php, the function serendipity_printEntries_rss()

With regard to the email address showing in Author followed by 'nick' inside () - I have selected 'No' for .... Show E-Mail addresses? in RSS .... also left blank both of these .... Field "managingEditor"
E-Mail address of the managing editor, if available. (empty: hidden) [RSS 2.0] .... Field "webMaster"
E-Mail address of the webmaster, if available. (empty: hidden) [RSS 2.0] .... I have done as you suggested in Spamblock .... however a default [firstname.lastname@example.org] email address is placed instead of my email address.
Will look at functions_entries.inc.php to see if I can sort that other problem.

Thanks Garvin I seem to have got everything done with your help.
Probably find 24 hours down the line I have killed something important - the joys of ruining someones hours of hard work!
