| Minor Updates to Blog Portal|
I stopped development of Blog Portal sometime ago because, first IndiBlogs, then HumBlog were to take-over its responsibilities.
But either of them did not take off, and after Rediff and Sulekha started offering blogs, the number of Indian blogs has increased noticeably, and some of them actively pinging the portal with their latest headlines.
To honor their efforts (and also Srijith's, who today found out how to configure Movable Type to ping automatically), I have made some enhancements.
- Fixed a formatting problem in XML and RSS feeds that was breaking whenever special characters wre used in the headlines (called Pick-up Line)
- There was a defect in the way the portal was recording an update. If someone pinged manually, and then the portal performed a ping import from Blogger or weblogs.com, the number of updates was incremented twice; fixed
