Planet parsing WordPress.com feeds wrong?


I’ve noticed that my post to this blog are showing up in the planet feeds I’m included in with the caption to the pictures I’ve included in the posts as the title for the post instead of the acutal title. Since I’m frequently using pictures from flickr with Creative Commons licenses my captions usually have nothing to do with the actual posts. Seems like it might be a touch confusing for readers. I’m not really sure what would be causing this or what I might need to do to fix it. Has anyone else with a WordPress.com blog noticed the same thing or is it just me?

    It looks like it’s because your feed has tags like this for various media in the post:

    <media:title type=”html”>rharrison</media:title>

    That’s where the titles are coming from. I’ll look into updating the Planet code Planet TriLUG uses and see if that helps.

    Thanks Tanner, at least that gives me a little to go on. I check to make sure I wasn’t pasting in those tags but it looks like WordPress is adding them in after the fact.
