    remove HTML tags from RSS Link to this post


    I am using the blog module with TinyMCE rich text editor. Is there any way to remove the HTML tags that I use in blog posts from the RSS output? I use embedded video in some blog posts but both the embed and object tag are no valid elements for RSS. I have problems to load the feed into another page.

    I tried strip_tags() in various places - even in the sapphire RSSFeed class - but nothing seems to work. Ideally I would not like to touch sapphire for this.

    This is a sample of my modified RSS generating code in BlogHolder.php:

    function rss() {
          global $project;
          $rss = new RSSFeed($this->LatestEntries(), $this->Link(), "MyDomain - 10 most recent blog entries", "Show the 10 most recent blog entries.", "Title", "Content");
       function LatestEntries() {
          // return the latest 10 blog articles
          return DataObject::get("BlogEntry", "", "`SiteTree_Live`.ID DESC", "", 10);

    Any help or suggestion is appreciated.
