    Thought so, I am emailing the webmaster for the site and going to talk to him about this further. He might know something about the feed that I'm not seeing.

    I know why that is - newer feeds are coming through as above, older feeds aren't. As I was playig about earlier, I had to keep adding more to try different things and the older ones are all OK.

    It's something to do with the HTML they're using in their feed. When you turn off the 'Convert HTML to BB Code' setting, you get more of the feed in there - with it on, it stops dead in it's tracks.

    Don't think there's much you can do from the vB side I'm afraid, it can only parse what it receives...

    Yep I have that exactly. I have even tried changing it to:
    Code:
    {rss:description}
    url={rss:link}]More....[/url]
    I left off [ from the beginning of that due to it converting it.

    In the template section of the Feed Manager, do you have this as the Body template:

    Code:
    {feed:description}
    [url={feed:link}]More...[/url]
    If you have changed {feed:description} to {feed:content:encoded} then change it back. The encoded feed doesn't work for that site.

    I've just set this up on my forum using that feed URL and gotten posts OK.

    Where exactly are you posting that feed to as I don't see it in your forums.

    RSS Output Problem

    I am trying to get an RSS feed to work properly for a site and it keeps giving me this: http://forums.projectlevel9.com/showthread.php?t=77

    I am not sure what is going on but I think it has to do with the feed I am trying to pull from which is this one: http://www.usafa.af.mil/rss/TopStori....asp?catId=660

    I am starting to think its on their end and not mine. Any response would be much appreciated.

    Thanks
    Steve
