Pulling Empty Messages

Postby uhwaitwhat » Mon Feb 01, 2016 5:00 pm

Beginning somewhere over the past 10 days (after the 19th of January) Vienna started pulling reddit messages incorrectly. Where previously it pulled messages like this: Image

They now look like this: Image

Mac OSX 10.11.2, Vienna 3.0.9.

Seems a change decided by reddit.
Vienna just renders what is available in the feed.

Thanks for looking into it :)

Is it possible it's a display issue? I tried another RSS client, and it's able to pull the message in full.

Additionally, I just looked at the XMS data in the actual message, and the message is there, just not being shown:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom"><category term=" reddit.com" label="/r/ reddit.com"/><id>/message/unread/.rss?feed=64a7ec7c96cd938ecec85b05de11f819761acaf4&amp;user=HumblerMumbler</id><link rel="self" href="https://www.reddit.com/message/unread/.rss?feed=64a7ec7c96cd938ecec85b05de11f819761acaf4&amp;user= REDACTED" type="application/atom+xml" /><link rel="alternate" href="https://www.reddit.com/message/unread/.rss?feed=64a7ec7c96cd938ecec85b05de11f819761acaf4&amp;user=HumblerMumbler" type="text/html" /><title>messages: unread</title><entry><author><name>/u/REDACTED</name><uri>https://www.reddit.com/user/REDACTED</uri></author><content type="html">&lt;div&gt; from REDACTED sent just now: re: LSD &lt;/div&gt; &lt;!-- SC_OFF --&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;md&quot;&gt;&lt;p&gt;Shh!&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;REDACTED&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;You were always home :*&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Stop apologising!&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt; REDACTED&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/div&gt;&lt;!-- SC_ON --&gt; &lt;div&gt; &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.reddit.com/message/messages/4vqcda&quot;&gt;&#91;full conversation]&lt;/a&gt; &lt;/div&gt;</content><id>t4_4vqcda</id><link href="https://www.reddit.com/message/messages/4vqcda"/><published>2016-02-02T04:12:17+00:00</published><summary type="html">from REDACTED sent just now: re: LSD</summary><title>from REDACTED sent just now: re: LSD</title></entry></feed>

Hi,

OK I've looked in to this and found the following:
https://www.reddit.com/r/bugs/comments/ ... messed_up/

Which then leads to: https://www.reddit.com/r/changelog/comm ... rss_20_to/

Which looks like reddit have broken a lot of RSS readers :(

EDIT:
I'm discussing some of the issues here: https://www.reddit.com/r/changelog/comm ... to/czli8pv

In the particular case of Vienna, it seems that the problem is that for each post, Reddit’s Atom feeds contain both a <content> and a <summary> item, and Vienna selects the <summary> because it appears after the <content>.

I can add a workaround.

Hi!

Is there any ETA for an update? I don't want to have to switch to another reader :(

Sorry for the lack of communication!

I've create an issue over at GitHub to track development: https://github.com/ViennaRSS/vienna-rss/issues/570

Cheers,
