Subject [jira] [Closed] (ROL-933) Include certain request data in RSS templates
Date Sun, 01 Jun 2014 22:02:01 GMT


Glen Mazza closed ROL-933.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

I recently removed the Referrer information being collected by Roller (except in the case
for blog comments) in favor of 3rd party solutions like Google Analytics but didn't realize
this potential use case for it.  However, looking at the previous implementation it was never
collecting user agent information anyway.

I've tested Roller trunk against both Chrome and Firefox with both the RSS and Atom feeds,
and the problem you reported here in 2005 is thankfully not occurring anymore.

If there's significant demand for user agent info, perhaps we can implement this in the future.
 Still, problems such as those you note would occur across most or all Roller installations,
so it would be good to code Roller to fix these matters for all installations; also, thankfully,
the front-end scripting frameworks today are usually quite capable of accommodating various
browser quirks, making actions on our part less and less necessary.

> In order to provide support for various browser specific problems, we should have access
to things like headers or user agents.  My primary concern is getting the user-agent in the
RSS feeds to change the content-type that is served.  Firefox does not recognize application/rss+xml
as a valid displayable type, so it tries to open the url.  The problem is described here:
> At minimum, I believe the user-agent in the context will get me where I need to go. 
But more information may be useful to others.
