Articles feed not working (5.0.3)?

I’m new to Typo and excited about using a RoR blogging app, but I’m
having trouble getting the articles feed to work (both comments and
trackback seem to be working). I’ve tried both RSS and Atom and I’ve
installed Typo several times, testing it on different blogs, but I
always get the same error (500 Internal Server Error). I’m using
Bluehost, if that matters. Anyway, here is the error message from the
log:

I tried running the /article.rss and when I’m in production mode I get
the 500 Internal Server Error, but when I switch over to development
mode I get this error message:

Showing app/views/articles/_rss20_feed.rss.builder where line #14
raised:

You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!
The error occurred while evaluating nil.email

Extracted source (around line #14):

11: xml.description this_blog.blog_subtitle
12:
13: rss20_feed.each do |value|
14: value.to_rss(xml)
15: end
16: end
17: end

And if I switch it over to Atom 1.0, this is what I get:

Showing app/views/articles/_atom_feed.atom.builder where line #10
raised:

You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!
The error occurred while evaluating nil.name

Extracted source (around line #10):

7: feed.generator “Typo”, :uri => “http://
www.typosphere.org”, :version => ‘4.x’
8:
9: atom_feed.each do |value|
10: value.to_atom(feed)
11: end
12: end

Thanks for your help! Hopefully one day I’ll be more knowledgeable and
return the favor to others!

RE: nil.email

I found my problem pointed to model file ‘article.rb’ in the method

def rss_author(xml)
if link_to_author?
xml.author("#{user.email} (#{user.name})")
end
end

Since we are showing the sidebar "Syndicate’ module on a web page that
the ‘user’ is not logged in, I can see where we would end up with
nil.email

So, I decided to replace the original method in the model ‘article.rb’
with this:

def rss_author(xml)
xml.author author
end

Since this method is in a model, I bounced the server.

The RSS feed display is now rendering, however Internet Explorer is
complaining with:

‘Internet Explorer was unable to update this feed and will try again
later.’

but Firefox seems to handle it quite nicely.

Follow up stuff…

I believe my problem with Internet Explorer is explained by our firewall
probably blocking “msfeedsync.exe”. I think this is true because I can
run TYPO on my localhost (my laptop) and everything works hunky-dory.

I am wondering if you ever got this to work. I am having the same exact
issue at line #14 on version 5.1.1 and 5.1.2

You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!
The error occurred while evaluating nil.email

Extracted source (around line #14):

11: xml.description this_blog.blog_subtitle

14: value.to_rss(xml)
15: end
16: end
17: end

Anybody have suggestions?

Hi Tim,

I’ve been able to reproduce your issue this week-end on one of my
production blogs, but not on all of them. Thank you for debugging. I
will commit a fix saturday with several other bugfix. Expect a pure
bugfix release around sunday, I need to extensively test the things
beyond the specs. I’ve created Selenium IDE scenario to test the UI,
we’ll see.

Regards,
Frédéric
