July 19th, 2008, 11:01 AM #1Deals database RSS
OK - please Shareasale can you generate a valid RSS feed.
There is no namespace for the extra elements you are adding. If you are going to add extra elements they should really be like this: coupon:coupon_code coupon:imagebig and the namespace should be defined.
I have to do some real nasty coding to even traverse the feed. Usually I'd use a DOM but it totally rejects it because of it's content.
I've just had to just some more hacking because Merchant 6586 - Xavier Media™ have added the TM sign to their name.
I don't really wish you to start following standards now and screw up everyone using this feed but it would be nice if you at least started with some OR created a new version that validates.

If you look on this page:
You will see 2 links , one link ends with /dealdatabase.xml , that link is 100% valid RSS 2.0 .
There's another link that ends with /dealdatabase2.xml that one has some additional fields.
I use the 2nd one, I have no problems in parsing their advanced deal data base.
I'm not using an RSS reader, I have using my own proprietary custom written reader to read that feed, and it reads just fine.

It is ugly. What parser/language are you using?
