      Description

      When I try to add an RSS block, it appears fine, but when I try to click 'configure this block to display RSS feeds'. it takes me to another tag page instead (the first tag in my list of interests). I can configure an RSS block on that page, but not on the original one, which is fourth in my list of interests. I always just end up on the tag page for my first interest.

      Deleting the block and adding it again makes no difference. This happens for every tag except my first one.

          Hmm.. it looks like the fix was only commited in HEAD. I'll see if we can backport it.

          Matt Gibson : it will have to stay like this for 1.9, see MDL-13631 for details.

          Were you able to reproduce the problem -Is it definitely this error thats causing it? I ask because I get that error on the tag page with or without the editing on and even without trying to alter the rss block.

          Does this mean that RSS is effectively useless for 1.9? I notice that moodle.org has working RSS feeds in some tag pages - what am I doing differently?

          Sorry, I was obviously replying too fast...

          The notice isn't the cause of this bug. I can reproduce this bug and will try to fix it (but only have 20 more minutes today), if it's not in 1.9, it should be in 1.9.1.

          I had a look at the code and it appears the rss block code is really course-specific. It's going to need a bit of work to make it possible to use it on tags. The fact that it works on tag id #1 is just luck : the system thinks that is "course id" #1, not tag id #1.

          GIven the short time-frame, I'm pushing this to 1.9.1 and in the meantime we'll take the rss_client block off the tags page.

          I needed this, so I altered the code to allow the rss_client block on the tags page again - and it works really well if you manage it properly - see http://socialwork.fife.gov.uk/tag/search.php

          The way that I circumvent the problem described in earlier comments is to NOT use the 'Add/Edit feeds link' but rather use the 'configuration' icon in the header of the rss_client block. As you can see, it does work. I have not altered any code other than the line that allowed the rss_client block to appear on the tags page.

          It's important for me to use RSS feeds in tag pages, so I'm going to vote for it to be fixed... I'd do it myself and contribute it back if I knew how

          i can confirm Jon Bolton's post

          indeed, clicking the add new rss feed does not work
          BUT clicking the block's configure icon works fine.
