Into the loop…

Any WordPress-gurus out there?

Sometimes you find yourself stuck on a simple task, and spend time trying to resolve an issue that you didn’t expect. Today was such a day…

SAIL is about to publish the first quarterly newsletter. It shall of course be featured on the main site of the SAIL project. At the same time we should offer the possibility to subscribe to the SAIL newsletter, in a  similar way as you can subscribe to blog post here on Sailors Inn.

All in all I expected this to be straight forward, using WordPress categories on the site and Feedburner to “burn” the category feed. However a problem occurred. I have posted a description of the issue on the WordPress forum if you are interested and might be able to help. It involves a modification of “the loop” in WordPress. I am not sure how the feeds are generated by WordPress, but it seems like “the loop” is involved.

If I don’t find a solution during Monday we’ll go for a slightly different approach – so stay tuned for the newsletter!

Any ideas around the issue?

Update 101214: The issue is resolved, and it wasn’t due to “the loop” as I originally suspected. A hunch that it might be a plug-in to blame, and a quick Google-search, gave away the solution. And the newsletter is now published.
