#1089 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Feeds do not have immutable GUID

Every time someone upgrades to WordPress 1.5, their feeds shoot into my aggregator even though I read (most) of them from before the upgrade.

Phil Ringnalda points out that this is because WordPress is using the post permalink as the unique identifier for the feeds:

This was fixed in 1.5

  • Milestone set to 2.0
  • Version changed from 1.5 to 1.6

RSS2 feed still uses permalink for GUID.

The GUID is saved by 1.5 (that is the fix mentioned above), but was never used by the RSS2 feed (verify this at http://trac.wordpress.org/file/branches/1.5/wp-rss2.php).

The correct code is currently (1.5 & 2.0) used in the Atom feed:

<?php the_guid(); ?>
