the "Missing channel element: description" problem is easy to fix, but i'm not sure how to fix the "author must include an email address" problem...

If the link/email field is empty, or does not contain what looks like a valid email address, is just uses the value <data>@<boardname>.

Otherwise, if it detects a legitmate email address (HAH), it uses that.

Well, thats my cheap idea towards it anyway.

My idea in >>2 is only for the RSS template, and not for the XHTML document. I'll try to quickly cook up some coding ideas to make my idea work.

Attempt #1 at bad code. At least this might give you an idea to work with.

templates.pl (use constant RSS_TEMPLATE, line ~458)


<author><var $author></author>


<author><var $author> - <var $rss_email></author>


This is just stuff to add in.

# Insert above line 308

my $rss_email ='$TITLE @ $ENV{SERVER_NAME}';
my $rss_email ='&lt; $email &gt;';

# Insert after line 316

"Author must include an email address"? What the hell kind of retarded requirement is THAT? No, really, what the HELL?

I added the lacking description, but I really don't feel like doing anything about the <author> element.

just have it default to lol@example.com or something.

Actually, no, you're right, it's retarded. Don't bother.
