Every post in the forums shows up twice in the feed

Post by jmyreen » 20 Jan 2011, 12:37

Every post on the forum shows up twice on the RSS feed "http://forum.excito.net/rss.php". This is a bit confusing and annoying when you try to follow the discussion threads via the feeds, especially since the duplicates show up a bit delayed.

Best regards,
Johan

I use the RSS feed as well in a widget on my phone.
I have not noticed the problem you describe, but perhaps it is clever enough to sort out duplicates.

I think I have figured out what's causing this. My RSS feed reader (Akregator) gets confused because the same article shows up with two different forms of links to the article:

http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?p=13719&#p13719
http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?p=13719#p13719

Notice the extra & sign in the first URL? Apparently this makes the reader think these are two different posts. I have never seen this on any other RSS feed.
