feed-rss2.php tests for $post->post_content without applying the_content filters
|Reported by:||nateomedia||Owned by:|
feed-rss2.php contains an if statement that tests to see if $post->post_content is greater than zero before using the_content (which may be changed to the_content_rss) to populate the <content: encoded> tag.
feed-rss2..php, line 48:
<?php if ( strlen( $post->post_content ) > 0 ) : ?>
No other RSS feed does this.
The problem is that this test does not take into account the_content filters, which may populate an otherwise empty post. The ComicPress theme is a real world instance where this occurs -- posts containing comics are populated using apply_filters to the_content rather than through direct entry when a new post is created.
If the RSS 2 feed template is to behave differently than the other feeds, it should at least apply the_content filters before testing for content rather than pulling directly from $post->post_content.
Otherwise, the RSS 2 feed template should be brought in line with the other feed templates and this test should be removed.
