The RSS1 feed links to a video file like this:

Instead of to a video_view page like this:

I'm trying to make us a Facebook app based on our RSS feeds. As RSS2 isn't working properly I'd like to use the RSS1 feed, but can't so making this a higher priority.

sorry that latest comment was from me (and), wasn't logged in.

Do we need to either contact qRSS2Syndication maintainers here to ask if this is a general issue:

Or do we need to start a branch of the product ourselves?

Andy had fixed it previously but I am not sure by what method. Over to you Andy :)

  • Description modified (diff)

here is the fix (which i was in the process of copying over from the other tracker...)

This is the line referring to this link in rss1body in stable: { <link tal:content="item/Identifier"></link> }

This is the line referring to this link in rss1body in testing: { <link tal:content="string: item/Identifier + '/view'"></link> }

This is the line referring to this link in rss1body in testing: <link tal:content="string: item/Identifier + '/view'"></link>

This suggests to me that this change has been made in testing, but not brought over to stable. If it's ok with Andycat I will commit this change to svn and update in stable.

I checked the latest videos RSS1 feed on and it appears to be empty:

Perhaps there is an error here? Should check before considering moving over to live stable instance.

hmmm I thought that had already been fixed

in the interests of getting through 0.8 I'm pushing this to high priority on 0.9.

  • Priority changed from major to critical
  • Milestone set to 0.2

also looks like this issue had been addressed here:

and more recently here:

and a related ticket about moving customisations to RSS into ATVideo product here:

comment:7 Changed 7 years ago by anna

posted a question on product forum here:

comment:8 Changed 7 years ago by andycat

and the answer is :

The default behaviour for content types is that the url with their id points straight to the default view template

Only ATFile (and everything that derives from it, like ATEngageVideo) changes that behaviour - a url just using the id , rather than a "/name-of-view" appended to it - starts a download of the file.

You should also know that rss 1 feeds arent being generated by qRSS2Syndication product anyway. That is only doing RSS2 feeds - which are correct but slow..b/c of the unpickling.

So..the real problem is:

The RSS1 has "changed" because at some point the ContentLicencing? product was incorporated into the mix, and overrides the templates of RSS1, using browser views style (zope3) . This applies only to content types that implment Products.ContentLicensing.DublinCoreExtensions?.interfaces.ILicensable which is setup in ContentLicensing/DublinCoreExtensions?/configure.zcml

Compare the source of the RSS1 files:

noting that is an ATFolder type , to : which is a smart folder

That is, smart folders only have this problem, that is , the std plone rss1 markup - other types of listings based on real folders , have the correct ContentLicensing enhanched + our patch to add 'view' on them

See here for an example of the correct RSS1 feed -

with actual CC licences and keywords included.

which will go into SVN soon.

See here on testing

RSS2 is still correct - and still slow.

It would be good to do a review of all the syndication links - both RSS1 and RSS2.
