It felt like a good time to check in again. Hope things are going well.

By: Phil Ringnalda


None of us has time to post anymore, we’re all too busy chasing around trying to figure out where all the rest of us have gone.

By: Marcus


Ye just popped into my head, again, so just here to confirm that you haven’t been secretly updating over these past few years.

By: Phil Ringnalda


A smart man would just write a plugin, rather than continually hacking at feed.php, wouldn’t he?

I’ve been pretty good about it, but this time Dreamhost’s automatic upgrade took four tries before they actually upgraded me, and I got tired of checking to see whether or not it had worked yet. Thanks for the warning that it finally did.

And you’ve regressed to RSS again, after upgrading to 2.6.3.

By: James


Yeah, WordPress just hashes the last-modified date to generate the ETag. I can’t follow the code since mxr/lxr (why are there two?) are misbehaving and not searching usefully, but I did find out that a force-reload doesn’t send any headers.

The late comment is due to your spam link removal/wordpress upgrade making the post reappear on Planet Mozilla.

By: Sam Ruby


My theory: WordPress actually serves the same ETAG for the RSS and Atom feeds. Mind you, I haven’t bothered to prove it, but it would explain both the strangeness that I have seen, and perhaps even what you see above. Does a force-refresh still send IF-NONE-MATCH and/or IF-MODIFIED-SINCE headers?

By: Phil Ringnalda


Yep, thanks. I had your comment sitting in my inbox, nagging at me to figure out why I saw Atom when you saw RSS, but bugspam’s made me pretty good at resisting the nagging effect of mail, so it wound up taking Sam Ruby accusing me of actually intentionally serving RSS to discover that it’s apparently possible, in some way I haven’t quite figured out, to make the Fx preview page pretend that you are force-refreshing when it’s actually still serving from the cache.

For the record, this was fixed on 24/1/08.

By: James


Ah, so the redirection is not the reversion, but /feed is definitely serving me RSS right now.
