***Secret FSR Fender guitars? Yes, they exist, and they're right here

CDATA, CDATA run, run data run

I just added the Talkr audio links into the RSS feed. Pretty snazzy indeed.

I also learned something. You can't modify a RSS feed by simply putting html paragraph tags within the description tag. Oh, no. That would be way too easy. Rather, it must begin with (with RSS 2.0):

<![CDATA[

..and end with:

]]>

Within those start/end things you can add html stuff, like images, links and so on.

Within an XML doc it would look like:

<description>article content goes here <![CDATA[<p>this is where you add your crap</p>]]></description>

I don't even know if that's the correct way to do it, but Feedburner and RssReader understand it. Done deal as far as I'm concerned. 😉

-- edit --

Took the Talkr links out of the RSS feeds. When they were there, Talkr would read everything, including the "Listen to this" line at the end and there was no way to have it ignore that part, so I'll be keeping the audio links on the web site only.

-- another edit --

For those who can accept podcast xml feeds, you can use this:

Link to Podcast (RSS feed) for this blog

Just use the link from the button in your favorite podcast player. Need a podcast player? Try Juice. It's free and works on Windows, Mac and Linux.
