During the past week, I’ve noticed that this blog’s RSS feed has been displaying content as single blocks of unformatted text. No paragraphs, no working links, just blocks of text.
I’ve had a number of emails from subscribers, too, pointing this out.
After a bit of digging around – prompted by this thread on the FeedBurner forum – I’ve narrowed the reason down to the likely culprit: the latest version 7.7 of PodPress, the WordPress plugin that enables podcasting on this site, which I upgraded to last week.
I’ve just rolled PodPress back to the version I was using before that upgrade, version 6.8. Hopefully, this will fix the formatting problem.
Apologies to RSS subscribers for any eye strain! Please let me know if you still encounter weird formatting. Thanks.
[Update @ 10:16] Yes, PodPress version 7.7 definitely was the problem. Checking the feed, I can see that all content is now correctly formatted again with paragraphs, bullets, line breaks, etc. If you still see bad formatting in your copy of the feed, try refreshing it or reloading it in order to get the latest copy in your RSS reader.
