Hey Guys,

I am currently trying to render an RSS Feed which contains html elements. I have duplicated and editted the RSS Widget that comes with the Blog module by changing this line:

$desc->setValue(strip_tags($item->get_description(),"&"));

for this line:

$desc->setValue($item->get_description(html));

This has left in the html that the strip_tags command was taking out, but is rendering the "< >" as "&lt; &gt;".

In the template that is rendering the description I have tried this:

<ul class="Articles">
   <% control FeedItems2 %>
      <li class="$EvenOdd<% if First %> first<% end_if %><% if Last %> last<% end_if %>">
         <h4><a name="Article-0$Pos"></a>$Title</h4>
         $Description
      </li>
   <% end_control %>
</ul>

and this

<ul class="Articles">
   <% control FeedItems2 %>
      <li class="$EvenOdd<% if First %> first<% end_if %><% if Last %> last<% end_if %>">
         <h4><a name="Article-0$Pos"></a>$Title</h4>
         $Description.EscapeXML
      </li>
   <% end_control %>
</ul>

But it still isn't rendering the html correctly.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks again.

Solved!

By adding HTML in front of Text when defining the $desc variable:

From:

$desc = new Text('Description');

to:

$desc = new HTMLText('Description');

before this line in the RSSWidget.php file

$desc->setValue($item->get_description());
