It’s Time to Upgrade Your Feed to RSS v2

On April 18th we launched RSS v2 on a more advanced platform leveraging our Finding API. You may recall we blogged about these changes and the importance of migrating to the new version on April 1st. As announced, the infrastructure behind RSS v1 stopped being supported as of June 30, 2011. We thought it might be a good time to remind and encourage all publishers still using RSS v1 to migrate to RSS v2.

For those of you who had previously had issues migrating to RSS v2 due to inconsistencies between the data fields provided, these issues have been resolved.  All fields available in RSS v1 are present in RSS v2, though they will require mapping. You can also expect increased stability and scalability in RSS v2. There are several optional parameters and filters you will be able to take advatange of in RSS v2, including an old favorite allowing you to limit the items returned by a specific country. Download all mappings and optional parameters and filters HERE.

You can still access the RSS feed from within the ePN Portal under Tools > Widgets in your account interface. We will soon be updating our Help content to include documentation on all parameters and filters within RSS v2 so stay tuned!

If you have questions please feel free to leave a comment below. We look forward to getting everyone upgraded to RSS v2!
