    Hello,

    I am a new webOS developer and am creating an app (basically a feed reader) that pulls my posts directly from my blog via RSS feed. Not sure why it is not working. The url to my blog feed is "http :// feeds.feedburner. com/ TabletConnect" (without the spaces since I can't post links). When I use this url in my app, it does not read from it. It can read other RSS urls but not this one. Any idea why and how I can get the app to read the feed? Thanks.

    the RSS feed parser in mojo is very temperamental. I was able to parse your feed in my app called techtray but my app says your feed is a nonstandard ATOM feed as opposed to most other feeds that are RSS 2.0 format. (essentially the field delimiters in ATOM feeds are different for story, title, description etc which is a real pain). So I had to setup some code in my app to detect if atom nodes were present and if so then to parse the returned XML differently.

    i'm kind of a novice anyway - so maybe someone else can give better advice. But there's my 2 cents. Perhaps there's a more elegant way to programatically go about this.

    another way to work around is to create an alias of your feed using yahoo's pipes. Pipes converts a feed to RSS 2.0 (among many other features) and then you can use the yahoo pipes URL (or tinyurl it) and go that route.

    Thx. I forgot to mention I am using Enoyo. Does this still apply?

    I will look into the yahoo pipes.

    That Yahoo pipes really works. Thanks. Unfortunately it doesn't show the first few lines of the article. Only the headlines. But it works.
