    • Type: Bug

    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Won't Fix
    • Affects Version/s: 2.0, 2.6.1, 2.8.1
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: RSS

      Description

      Example is the following URL:

      http://moodle.org/rss/file.php/51/1b51bf7f3cab9689af042af1ff4a07f0/mod_forum/1/rss.xml

      If you check this in feed validator you will notice one error and several warnings:

      http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmoodle.org%2Frss%2Ffile.php%2F51%2F1b51bf7f3cab9689af042af1ff4a07f0%2Fmod_forum%2F1%2Frss.xml

      Generally, feeds should probably validate without errors or warnings in most cases. In this particular case I think the lack of a <title> tag is causing practical problems with how this feed appears, such as on moodle news block on http://demo.moodle.net/.

      note: blame helen for finding this bug, I just investigated it a bit
