RSS Feed Doesn't Validate

I generated an RSS report for one of the sites I'm monitoring. The detail pages display fine, but the summary.php page will not display in my feed reader (NetNewsWire 3.1.7b1). The validator's main complaint was the pubDate format, which it says "must be an RFC-822 date-time."

Is there something I can do to tweak the template? Thanks.

Re: RSS Feed Doesn't Validate

It seems a very simple tweak is required. Edit the summary.rss document and replace the space between the date and time variables with a "T", i.e. like so:

    <pubDate>{ReportDate}T{ReportTime}</pubDate>

That should fix it.

Thanks for letting me know! I'll get this fix into the next release.
