Enhancing RSS feeds

Finally. As I mentioned in the previous entry, I have been feed futzin’ this evening. It appears that the problem was in the [default RSS 2.0 template](http://www.sixapart.com/movabletype/default_templates_32/rss_20_index.txt) which is as plain vanilla as you can get.

[Taking a look at it,](http://www.sixapart.com/movabletype/default_templates_32/rss_20_index.txt) here’s the pertinent part:

My comment count and extended entry links weren’t posting in the feed because, well, there’s absolutely no code in the template to call it.

After some trial and error, I edited the section as follows and it appears to be working. [FeedBurner](http://www.feedburner.com) has caught up and is burning the [corrected feed,](http://feeds.feedburner.com/viewfromhome) but [Newsgator](http://www.newsgator.com) hasn’t gotten it yet (as of 10:41 pm EDT) so I can’t check it in [FeedDemon.](http://www.feeddemon.com) This post should generate a ping.

If anyone is still seeing anything funky in my feed, let me know okay?

It was the `CDATA` stuff that got a little tricky for me.
