[EP-tech] Re: RSS2 confused published date

When I look at the RSS output (http://isls-eprints-31.wmin.ac.uk/cgi/latest_tool?output=RSS2) all items have published dates.
The 'little green arrow' sounds like you're putting the RSS through some form of renderer - which may be grouping same-RSS-published-dates together?

You may be able to add microformats to the <item> to help you with this (http://microformats.org/discuss/mail/microformats-discuss/2005-August/000670.html), or change the rendered to extract the (date) from the citation.

What renderer are you using (or is it a browser's rendering of the feed? Firefox looks OK - but no green arrows!)?

Cheers,
John

John,



Many thanks, that explains.

But, why do I not get the RSS published date on my second example?

Is it possible to replace the RSS published date with the item's published date?



Thanks,

Malcolm.

Malcolm,
I think you may be confusing the RSS published date (e.g. the date that the record appeared in the RSS feed - the deposit date - which is needed for RSS to work out what's going on), and the item-published-date. I would not expect these to be the same...

Cheers,
John

Hi,

I'm trying to get the published date to appear before that little green arrow on the RSS2 output, but what I get is the date of deposit. Here, looking at the page source, the document was published in (2007) but the top line shows the date it was deposited - 17th June 2008. The second example shows no top line even though the deposit and published date are entered. Looking at the top line in the first example, it is flagged as being the 'pubDate' so I would expect '2007' to appear and not  'Tue, 17 Jun 2008 15:19:13 +0100' Can someone give me a clue here? Why is the deposit date shown and not the published date? Why do some have no date at all? Is it something to do with null values for the published date?
