Subject: RSS 2.0 Portal Block?

Okay... so Bungie released Halo 2 yesterday for the Xbox. On their site, Bungie.net, they give users the ability to link to their personal game stats via an RSS feed.

Great, I thought wouldn't this be cool if I could simply link to it via a Portal Block on my Geeklog site? Well, needless to say, the block wouldn't even draw. So, just for fun, I pasted in a normal rss feed from a site listed on Geeklog's page and it worked fine. So I know rss is working on my site.

Here's the rss feed I'm trying to link to:

Thanks for any help.

Oh, now I'm really confused. It worked for you eh?

yes, here is the URL that I used instead of my bungie url.

http://www.apple.com/main/rss/hotnews/hotnews.rss

And it worked fine. I'm running Geeklog 1.3.9sr2...

Hmm..... this is going to drive me nuts. :-)

Hmmm... I tried it on a different Geeklog site and it worked fine... however that site was also running 1.3.9sr1. Is it possible that sr2 broke it? Anyone with 1.3.9sr2 willing to try it? (refer to original post for url)
