Okay, I'm having a heck of a time getting this to work. I've got HTML doc working, etc, and when I get an actual working feed it seems to work perfectly.

Problem is, most of the feeds aren't working. Seems to be a problem with the Content Element field.

Take Slashdot, for example. Their feed is: http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdot

The XML in the wiki is very basic. Just the feed name and get $link. WHen I do that and test it, all I get in the log window is:
Processing feed Slashdot
2006-11-29T00:21:00+00:00 is in range
Putting description in the Content element field nets me the same thing. If I put link in the Content element field then it "works", showing me the list of article titles and their links:
If I put title in the Content Element field, it doesn't work. The log shows me something else happening:
Processing feed Slashdot
2006-11-29T00:21:00+00:00 is in range

Final content:
null
No content for Barney Surrenders To the EFF
2006-11-28T22:32:00+00:00 is in range

Final content:
null
No content for Easy Throw-Away Email Addresses
2006-11-28T21:51:00+00:00 is in range
WHat the heck is going on here?

I can get slashdot working by using the link element and the content extractor, but it's slow and cludgy, and doesn't format well.

I do have one basic feed that does work - digg. Also, the dilbert one seems to work as well.

Can anyone help me?
