So Much for Web 2.0

with 2 comments

I’m redesigning the flying blog, and one thing I want in the sidebar is a list of the latest posts from the blogs I read. This is 2007 and Web2.0 so it’s easy right? I imported my feedlist into GoogleReader, tagged the flying blogs and made them public, got me a nice little URL.

The K2 theme comes with an RSS module, there are 10’s of WordPress plugins to display RSS (I know, I tried them all) but not one of them will display the feed properly. A little searching around suggests that it is a combination of Google’s XML and lazy coding in the plugins that is the problem. Google has two title tags in the XML per entry and that is confusing everyone. So, unless I move my feed list to a different service (any suggestions as to who?) I just have to wait. Oh, or write my own?
