  • I'm trying to display a feed from Arqade (e.g.: https://gaming.stackexchange.com/feeds/tag/rec-room ). I'm running into the problem that the date of all entries is displayed as the current date. Also, I cannot even avoid the display of that incorrect date for each entry (removing the "date" attribute from the rss tag has no effect). Apparently, I'm not alone with this problem: https://swtor.fandom.com/wiki/RSS_feed . Does anyone know how to either display the correct date (for modern feeds) or how to remove the dates of entries?

    • This looks like a bug (I see the same problem on a wiki I admin)... I think FANDOM's RSS extension is pretty old and non-standard. You can report the bug via the "Contact us" form.

    • I tried looking at it before but couldn't find anything definite. What I did notice was that there seems to be a difference in how this feed is structured compared to the working one on the help page. Perhaps the extension is just out-of-date? I am just guessing as I have no idea how feeds work.

    • I think the RSS extension in use got broken by something, but since one of the big sources of RSS, Google, changed their URLs, it broke many RSS feeds and lots of people probably just gave up.

    • It seems the two RSS feeds on https://swtor.fandom.com/wiki/RSS_feed are not showing b/c the feeds no longer exist (the first url redirects me to an HTML page on another website, and the other one throws a security error) and https://gaming.stackexchange.com/feeds/tag/rec-room shows fine for me (https://chito.ge/51GYuGn.png) using
      <rss>https://gaming.stackexchange.com/feeds/tag/rec-room</rss>

    • Forbym is talking specifically about the dates. If you compare the dates displayed on the page with the dates listed in the XML you get by going to the URL, you see they do not match. For some reason, the extension is displaying all dates as the current timestamp instead of the actual timestamp. However, it is somehow displaying the example on the help page correctly. I am guessing Fandyllic is right; or something along those lines.

      Ah I missed you were talking about the dates, yeah that seems like a bug that wikia needs to fix (maybe UCP might fix it?)

    • Assuming the UCP uses and updated version of the extension (or an updated replacement), probably. The issue is that could be quite a while from now.

    • FANDOM uses a custom version of the RSS extension, it seems, so they should just fix it.

        Loading editor
    • In that case, it will probably be another "fixed with UCP" case.

    • Not all fixes need to wait for UCP... if that's the case we might as well stop reporting bugs.

    • I never said they need to wait. But that seems to be their reply to everything these days.

    • Sadly.

    • If I gave you that impression, it's not so much "fixed with UCP", it's "we don't have the (wo)manpower to fix it atm because everyone's prioritizing working on UCP".

    • Not a better answer.

    • Not at all. Frustrating too.

      I just realized where this comment may have been coming from. No, my reply was not a result of yours on another thread. It was a result of replies from staff that either I or others (whom I encouraged to report bugs) have received.

    • The real question is whether anyone formally reported the bug... I know I didn't.
