      Description

      The Remote news feed block does not display the pubDate for items. I've tried it on Moodle demo too and found the same. Users want to be able to show when something has changed. The information is shown in other RSS feeds such as Feedly. See below:

      I have tried other RSS feeds such as the BBC, ALT, Reuters etc and find the same.

      1. Add block.
      2. Select Remote RSS/News feed.
      3. Add a new feed. Feed in example above: http://readinglists.warwick.ac.uk/lists/92EC98A7-112D-2345-20AC-36DC2E7C7E46/events.html?title=WM087%3A+Quality+and+Productivity+in+Health+Service+Systems+%28FT%29
      4. Configure the block. Select the feed.
