Google Base: Bulk Upload: RSS2.0: Content is not allowed in prolog

Discussion in 'Google' started by sarahk, Feb 10, 2006.

  1. #1
    I've used PhpBase to create a bulk upload of my WordPress site and from what I can see the rss is just the way Google have requested it.
    However I get the error above. I removed all the channel info but still I get the error.

    There's nothing in help, so can anyone tell me what the "prolog" is so that I can remove the content :)

    You can see a small version of the feed here: http://sarahk.pcpropertymanager.com/phpbase/sarahk.php?show=1
    and the feedvalidate output here: http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http://sarahk.pcpropertymanager.com/phpbase/sarahk.php?show=1

    OK, I got it sorted. The syntax they supply in their own FAQ is wrong :( not what you expect from Google!

    I'm now having issues because even though I specify the author all the articles show up as being written by me, rather than submitted by me. Now my ego is flattered but it's crazy to specify information and then have it totally ignored.

    Anybody else used a bulkupload tool and had that problem?

    sarahk,

    You said you got it sorted. Mind if I ask how you did so. I am also using PhpBase and am running into the same problem.

    I know it's the ftp function in the script, but can't seem to knock it down.

    I created my own RSS2 schema and that caused problems. I was pointed to the phpBase CVS site and found the version there. It constructs the first few lines of the schema significantly differently but it's obviously right because it goes through!!!

    Only outstanding issue is that the author setting isn't respected. [more]
