​Bug/bad UX: RSS (for Blogs): Most tags redirect fine, but some don't

To get the RSS-Feed of blogs, MOST of the time it's fine to past the Tag-URL into our feed-reader (I use RSSOwl).

The reader will add the /feed/ to it, and it's fine.

Example:

https://blogs.sap.com/tags/865254337794871183385756863647856/

(SAP Mentors)

-> https://blogs.sap.com/tags/865254337794871183385756863647856/feed/

However, on some tags, this doesn’t work:

https://blogs.sap.com/tags/514184132407067932511783863172239/

(UI SAP Business Client (NWBC))

Reader redirects to

https://blogs.sap.com/feed/

Workaround: manually build the URL:

https://blogs.sap.com/tags/514184132407067932511783863172239/feed/

Not such a big deal as there's a workaround - still, behavior should be consistent, so I think it's worth investigation why it's not in that case.

Here's another tag, that will not re-direct in my case:

https://blogs.sap.com/tags/49511061904067247446167091106425/

(Security)

Again, munually building the URL by adding /feed/ works fine!

I tried adding https://blogs.sap.com/tags/514184132407067932511783863172239/ with Bamboo 2.3.2 (Pale Moon 27.2.1) and Brief 2.2.2 (Firefox ESR 52.0.2) and it worked without problems - the url is generated as expected.

Are you still experiencing this problem?

Hi Veselina,

thanks for trying it out!
Yes, I still do have that problem, but maybe it's something on my side, then..
