I've just been playing with the core Feed Explorer module. This is going to be a great addition to DNN once it's officially released.

I have a Url in my OML file which has an ampersand. If I try to included it as an & in the feed Url then the Feed Explorer displays the defaults, meaning something isn't quite right with the processing. If I use & it doesn't display the default, meaning it works fine.

The problem is that if I try passing & on the querystring to generate my RSS, it doesn't work.

For example, I'm using this Url (don't try it, it's a dummy):

http://www.domain.com/desktopmodules/ntforums/feeds.aspx?portalid=1&forumid=2&tabid=142&moduleid=798

Result
- Doesn't work in Feed Explorer, but works on the address bar to generate RSS

Then I try this:

http://www.domain.com/desktopmodules/ntforums/feeds.aspx?portalid=1&forumid=2&tabid=142&moduleid=798

Result
- Doesn't break Feed Explorer, but shows no items, nor does it work on the address bar

Has anyone come across this, or got any ideas of a quick fix?

Has anyone got URLs containing ampersands (&) to work in the Feed Explorer module?

I've followed this post below but my problem remains:

http://www.dotnetnuke.com/Community/Forums/tabid/795/forumid/48/threadid/168802/scope/posts/threadpage/2/Default.aspx

Nik mentions in the post above that 4.7 will have an update for the Feed Explorer.

I just installed DNN 4.7 locally to further test the Feed Explorer module.

In the settings I have 'Custom OPML Text' selected and I replaced one of the default Url with this:

http://www.ventrian.com/desktopmodules/activeforumstopposts/feeds.aspx?tabid=35&moduleid=611

This didn't work as it showed the default display and I think it's because of the & in the Url.

I then tried using & instead. It didn't show the default which suggests that this is the correct method, but nothing gets returned.

Here's the OPML Text:

<outline text="Tab One" type="none" category="Tab">
    <outline text="Section 1" type="none" category="Section">
        <outline text="Category 1" type="rss" category="Category" xmlUrl="http://www.ventrian.com/desktopmodules/activeforumstopposts/feeds.aspx?tabid=35&amp;moduleid=611" />
        <outline text="Category 2" type="rss" category="Category" xmlUrl="http://news.google.com/?output=rss" />
    </outline>
    <outline text="Section 2" type="none" category="Section">
        <outline text="Category 1" type="rss" category="Category" xmlUrl="http://news.google.com/?output=rss" />
        <outline text="Category 2" type="rss" category="Category" xmlUrl="http://news.google.com/?output=rss" />
    </outline>
</outline>
<outline text="Tab Two" type="none" category="Tab">
    <outline text="Section 1" type="none" category="Section">
        <outline text="Category 1" type="rss" category="Category" xmlUrl="http://news.google.com/?output=rss" />
        <outline text="Category 2" type="rss" category="Category" xmlUrl="http://news.google.com/?output=rss" />
    </outline>
    <outline text="Section 2" type="none" category="Section">
        <outline text="Category 1" type="rss" category="Category" xmlUrl="http://news.google.com/?output=rss" />
        <outline text="Category 2" type="rss" category="Category" xmlUrl="http://news.google.com/?output=rss" />
    </outline>
</outline>
<outline text="DotNetNuke" type="link" category="Feed" xmlUrl="http://www.dotnetnuke.com/Portals/25/SolutionsExplorer/GlobalDirectory.opml" />

Does anyone have any clue what's going on here?

Does anyone know the Team Lead for the Feed Explorer module? Not having much luck getting any info about the Feed Explorer.

I think it's a great addition to the default module list and it should have it's own Forum and team area.
