    Suggestion for coupon/deal rss feed
    Can you separate the elements in the description field? Such as separate fields for coupon code, expiry date etc.

    Glumbo,

    For that you would need to download and process a flat file version of the deal feed... which is one of the retrieval options with a deal feed subscription.

    Database files for merchant deal feeds are updated daily, GM

    Is there a special reason why the rss can't be organized like the flat file?

    Our RSS feeds conform to the RSS specification, e.g.: RSS 2.0 Specification (RSS 2.0 at Harvard Law) ..and there is not support in that spec (without referencing an external namespace) for some of the more customized fields that are included in the flat file.

    I checked with our CTO and he recommended the AdSearch API module, using XML output. That option does split out the various pieces of information into separate XML nodes, at least.

    Hope that helps, GM
