RSS, HTML, and an iPhone app
« on: February 04, 2011, 09:36:39 pm »
Recently I had an iPhone app made for my podcast, through my account with Libsyn.com. The app is designed to pull the feed info from Libsyn. However, I was already publishing my podcast through my WordPress blog (machigai.com), so we set it up so that the feed from WordPress (using BluBrry PowePress) would go through Libsyn and on into the app.

The problem is that the episode information is losing formatting and links in the feed, and becomes just a messy block of text. In the Libsyn site I can add formatting, but then it updates from the feed and loses the changes.

So it stands to reason that, if the feed could keep the HTML, then Libsyn and the app would keep it as well. Is there any way to do this? Or would it cause too many problems when the feed is read by iTunes?
