I have added a fully functional RSS and ATOM feed to the content management system. There are still bugs to be worked out, but the system is up and running.
I have been meaning to learn how to program RSS and ATOM feeds for a while now. I have workded with software that did this in the past, but never really know the actual format that RSS and ATOM needed to be in.
I would seem that RSS and ATOM would be simple enough to implement, but any time you try to make somthing conform to standards, you end up running into obscure problems that you didn't anticipate.
With ATOM is was the self referencing link. There isn't a whole lot of documentation supporting this, but to have a fully implemented ATOM feed that is standards compliant, you need to include a link back to the feeds location.
