I added new RSS feeds to the CMXtraneous blog -- full posts with HTML code. The original RSS feeds stripped HTML and also truncated posts to a small summary. Now, in the RSS module in the sidebar, you can get either the original RSS feed or the full post feed. This also works for individual blog author feeds as well.

The feeds are styled somewhat with XSL and CSS so that they can be read in a browser.

DW connections problem & solution

I recently installed SP1 on my Win2003 server box and discovered that DW could no longer introspect my databases. I'm not positive that the problem is due to SP1 but I can't think what else has changed from when it worked to when it didn't.

Symptoms: Connections test successfully and Live Data mode works fine but DW can't find the tables, views, and stored procedures when you expand the nodes in the Databases panel in the Application panel group. (Similar problem seen in the DataSet dialog, too.)

Solution: I tracked the problem to the MMHTTPDB.js file in the _mmServerScripts folder. This folder resides under the root of your site. Specifically, I modified the calls to OpenSchema by removing the 2nd, optional, parameter. Everything worked just fine then.

Old code:

return MarshallRecordsetIntoHTML(this.Connection.OpenSchema(adSchemaTables,VBVariant));

New code:

return MarshallRecordsetIntoHTML(this.Connection.OpenSchema(adSchemaTables));

As far as I can tell there are no adverse side effects when the optional argument is removed. Of course, the bad news is that you have to make this change for all websites that you're working on that are hosted on a Win2003 server that's been upgraded to SP1.

Anyone else out there experience this problem? If you try this fix, please write back and let me know if it works for you and if you see any problems with this solution.
