I'm sharing data between two Drupal sites using the Aggregator and Views modules (created a Feed to look at a content type).

This works, but the problem is that the source server places CCK fields within the description field, so when I try to use those fields in the destination view (e.g to filter content), the view doesn't about the CCK fields.

Is there anyway to make the CCK fields render as regular fields in the RSS? Like title or author?


For this situation I prefer using the Services module, then enable a rest server and using the index. Here is an excerpt about it from the module's project page:

A standardized solution of integrating external applications with Drupal. Service callbacks may be used with multiple interfaces like REST, XMLRPC, JSON, JSON-RPC, SOAP, AMF, etc. This allows a Drupal site to provide web services via multiple interfaces while using the same callback code.


Take a look at fields options in the views and look at rewrite result and check "Rewrite the output of this field" this should let manipulate field value as you wish.

P.S. Sorry if I have not understood your question correctly. The phrase "the view doesn't about" makes me wander what you where trying to say. Could you give an example of what you get and what you want?
