[DONE] RSS: Tags should be specified as category elements
talklittle commented on 23 August 2016 at 4:52 pm UTC

Thanks for supporting RSS! Suggestion: Instead of putting the tags directly in the RSS item description, you can use separate <category> elements. See https://validator.w3.org/feed/docs/rss2.html#ltcategorygtSubelementOfLtitemgt

For example, instead of:


<description><![CDATA[Tags:Steam,FPS,Coming Soon,Action<br /> ... </description>


You can do:


<category domain="">Steam</category>
<category domain="">FPS</category>
<category domain="">Coming Soon</category>
<category domain="">Action</category>

I forgot to mention why this is a good idea. It's a standard way of tagging in RSS, so RSS reader software can parse, display, and filter tags straightforwardly. Thanks for considering.

Sorry I haven't got to this yet, I have noted it and will be looking it up.
