If you’re reading this through a feed reader, you might have seen a lot of recent posts marked as new. This would be because I just changed the WordPress generation code slightly to compensate for a Bloglines issue.
The issue is that the part of a blog post after a cut will be all blue, because Bloglines will replace the cut anchor (something like
<a id="more-123"></a>) with some broken code of its own, including links that span the cut contents.
Ideally, Bloglines would solve this themselves. I reported the problem months ago. Since they haven’t, though, I solved it for my own blog by simply making the cut anchor into a
div tag rather than an
a tag. The anchor still works, and Bloglines no longer messes with my feed.
I’m running WordPress 2.0. I’ve no idea if the problem or this solution apply to other versions. I did notice LiveJournal feeds get the same treatment, though…
The file to change is
