A Strong Test for Markup In Titles & Summaries

Saturday, March 17th, 2007

I’ve been hacking on Benjamin Smedberg’s Atom 1.0 plug-in for WordPress. I’ve added a preference panel for choosing between full text and summary feeds. Now I’ve fixed the double escaping of content in titles and summaries. (Escaped HTML is evil and should never have been allowed into Atom.)

However I’m not sure how my hack will react when posts contain markup in titles and summaries so I’m playing with that now. Hence this post. I may delete it once I’m convinced I’ve covered the various special cases well enough.

Things may look a little funny in the feed until I’m done since I’ll be deliberately breaking things to see how WordPress behaves.

Notes from NY PHP Con

Thursday, June 15th, 2006

Today I’m at the New York PHP Conference. It’s interesting. I wish I had a little more time to spend here this week, but I have to get ready for next week’s ABA conference in Bangor.

I’d hoped to do some live reporting about this, but the wireless here at the Hoel New Yorker is quite flaky. It keeps coming in and out. This is often a problem at some of these old New York hotels that are full of iron in the walls.
