Post Odd Feed
I'm getting a feed from feedburner that has html in it. Is there a plugin or something that I can use to clean up the feed?

What's the problem? This feed is handled OK by Awasu.

If you want to see the feed with no HTML, you can configure the channel to show a plain-text version of the feed items. Open the channel's Properties dialog and change the <i>Feed content</i> setting in the bottom-right of the first page.

Plain text, default, full content, I get the same results:

Code:
<p><img title="Unhappy_1" alt="Unhappy_1" src="http://www.mmiblog.com/photos/uncategorized/unhappy_1.jpg" border="0" style="FLOAT: left; MARGIN: 0px 5px 5px 0px" /> Are you sure?</p> <p>According to <a href="http://www.shrm.org/login.asp?clickth=http://www.shrm.org/ema/news_published/CMS_014369.asp">Working in America: The Disgruntled Workforce Survey</a>, 77% of the more


Rather than a formatted page. All my other feeds seem to be just fine.

I had a closer look at what's happening and there's something a bit odd going on.

What version of Awasu are you using? Are you using Mozilla as the embedded browser?

Advanced Edition 2.2

Using the default (IE6 sp2) as the browser

Running XP Pro.

Their atom feed from the site (well, behind the site) works fine, but it only feeds the last 5 entries, I'd rather use the feedburner feed.

The problem is with the feed.

They are providing the item content in <summary> tags but not specifying a <i>type</i> attribute. The Atom 0.3 specification clearly states that in this situation, the content is to be treated as <i>text/plain</i> which is why you're seeing all the HTML markup. This problem may be being caused by either FeedBurner or the feed publisher themselves.

BTW, the FeedBurner feed is also Atom and also appears to only return 5 items. I couldn't find another feed on the site.
