RSS feeds - link from aggregator not working

84 Views

Hi all

I've got a problem with checking the forums from my RSS aggregator (and it's hard to cover a lot of forums in a busy day without RSS).

The RSS doesn't contain full posts, only excerpts. I'd rather have full posts if you can supply another feed, but we'll leave that for the moment.

Anyway, the problem is that the RSS aggregators can't render the <link> URLs to the full post from the excerpt.

If you look at the raw feed and cut'n'paste the link into a browser address bar, it doesn't work (top and side navigation render, workspace frame gives 404 error). If you change the initial 'https' to 'http' of the <link> url it works fine.

Example:

https://www.sdn.sap.com/sdn/collaboration.sdn?node=linkFnode6-1&contenttype=url&content=https://pcui-where-can-i-get-the-'filter'ed-object-list-fr

This link will work from within this post though, I think - close your browser sessions down, create a new one and see.

This is on standard SAP laptop images. I've tried this with two aggregators - FeedReader and SharpReader.

Can anyone help? Are others experiencing it? Can we get full content in the feeds? I can check hundreds of posts in a busy day using my aggregator, but not many if I have to browse.

Cheers

Dom
