Fixes to ChinesePod Conversations RSS
This past week we've been working to fix the Conversations section RSS feeds. Here's what we did:
- Fixed bad links (mainly relating to Extra content)
- Fixed mismatched content/links
- Fixed RSS feed titles
The RSS feeds were actually a big pain to fix not for technical reasons, but for testing reasons. Google Reader is our RSS Reader of choice, and it seems to be emerging as the dominant favorite out there, besting Bloglines and championed by such influential blogs as ReadWriteWeb. But Google Reader has this caching system that makes changes to an already cached feed really difficult to confirm. As a result:
- There may still be some problems we have not caught.
- You may not be able to see the fixes right away if you have been using Google Reader for these feeds.
Thanks, everyone, for your help in identifying the problems with these feeds, particularly Phil (who even sent me screenshots) and LostInAsia. If there are still problems, let us know and WE WILL CRUSH THEM. :)
