Russian Feeds don't work

Post by AustrianGuest »

Dear Team from NothingEverywhwere,

I tried to load feeds from the russian newspaper: russkaja gazeta. At the first step the program finds the feeds, based on the adress: It finds several feeds but it isn't able to write the cyrillic letters correctly. After I chose one feed and renamed it, I have to use latin letters. If I take cyrillic letters, xFeed don't forward it to the categories.
Once in the choosen category the feed isn't able to load the themes. Following message occurs: Unable to parse. Error 9 at Line 4, Column 14.

I'm using an iPad and the actual version of xFeed.

Perhaps you are able to solve this problem?

Greetings in Vienna! Working with the many different languages of the world has proven to be challenging and very insightful. More so than i would have thought. Languages using a cyrillic alphabet have been difficult due to their use of certain character sets (primarily windows-12xx). xFeed encounters problems when parsing some of these feeds when it encounters a character it does not recognize (Error 9). A new parser is in the testing stages and the more of the error prone feeds that are posted, the more that will work in the next version. Expect a beta version to hit this website in the coming weeks... Thanks for posting!

This is definitely one of the main areas of focus for the next update. The plan is to have much better support for a wide variety of languages and character sets. Thank you for posting and we'll see if we can get this going soon!

Support for many, if not all, character sets has been implemented in xFeed version 4.0. :P
