#15110 new defect (bug)

Useless MIME type served for rss feeds

Reported by: singpolyma Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.0
Component: Feeds Keywords: has-patch dev-feedback
Focuses: Cc:


Both /feed/, /feed/rss2/, and /feed/rss/ are served using the very undescriptive and generally useless "text/xml" MIME type. ATOM and RDF feeds are served with their proper MIME types. It looks like the MIME types for RSS are in feed.php, but for some reason there is a special "rss-http" type that returns the useless type? Changing the first line in feed-rss.php and feed-rss2.php to use the rss and rss2 type instead of rss-http fixed it on my site.
