I am being tasked with using an external RSS feed that does not correctly use the Author tag. Its values just contain a first and last name like this:
After importing, the field remains blank.
I unfortunately do not have any control over the source RSS feed and cannot fix this.
I am using the RSS/Atom parser.
I have tried using "Author email", "Author name" and a custom source simply called "author" and none were able to parse the value.
What can be done about this?
How to reproduce:
To reproduce this error, you can import this feed into any Drupal site: https://www.drupal.org/files/issues/2018-12-03/feeds.feed_type.author_test.yml
The feed imports into the Article Content Type. The Author in the RSS is mapped to the Body field.
You can also use the following 2 RSS feeds for testing:
- Not working (Similar to what I need working) - http://126.96.36.199/test.rss
- Working (Proof that Author only works if in correct format) - http://188.8.131.52/test-working.rss
The only difference between these files is Line 23.
RSS 1 has:
RSS 2 has:
<author>John@smith.com (John Smith)</author>
I need Feeds to work with RSS 1 for my issue to be solved.
