Blog-journey-hack problems SOLVED

I woke up on Tuesday to find that my blog-journey hack was broken, but the problem is fixed now.

Feed2js.org, one of two internet services on which the hack relies, had altered the way it processes feeds. The change was causing HTML code that was part of the feed to be printed on screen rather than executed.

The result was a loss of formatting and the appearance of some gnarly non-english characters on screen.

The problem was fixed when feed2js reverted back to its previous routine.

Feed2js.org is a very handy free web service that will take a feed and turn it into a script that you can paste into your blog.

The service provides a clear user interface and many options for what exactly is included. I use it in my recipe for displaying blog content as a "journey," in chronological order.

I'm very glad this problem is resolved!

I haven't changed a thing, though I may need to to resolve this problem.

You need look no further than the sidebar of this blog to see the messy results, which brackets the title of each post with HTML code.

I am trying to learn more and come up with a workaround. Meanwhile perhaps the problem will right itself, if the errant service is restored to its previous mode.


Very sorry! That's all I know right now.
