Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

Looking at Main.WebRss one sees the "description" for each item displays escaped html of the entire topic rather than the topic summary ($summary). On TWiki.org, WebRss properly displays the topic summary.

Thinking that there might be something wrong with the Dakar version of WebBaseRss, I compared it to the TWiki.org version and found no substantial differences. I then tried replacing the Dakar version of the relevant part of the Cairo version. It still didn't work.

This lead me to think that perhaps there was something wacky with the $summary variable in formatted search so I tested that in a simple search and found no problem. It's only in the context of WebRss that this variable is not working.

That was as far as I could figure to go so posted this bug report. It may be related to Item939 but it seems that this is a "urgent" bug, assuming people will actually want to use TWiki newsfeeds.


The culprit is the call to TWiki::Renderer::makeTopicSummaryRSS, as it's creating a full html version of the topic.

there are two options to solve this: Either change the call from makeTopicSummaryRSS to makeTopicSummary, or make it configurable so the RSS summary is HTML up to N characters.


Fixed it by changing RSS to display changes instead. More useful, IMHO


Summary WebRss is displaying raw html for item description.
