Feedback

Occasionally when UUpdates has had issues the feedback pages have also had issues. So, I am just opening up this post for any feedback in case the email or other feedback mechanisms are broken.

On the New rss feed for new sites added to your feed, I see what looks like Google analytic code:

"var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-26010014-1’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();"

On the "New" page, I see some code that doesn't belong there:

"var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-26010014-1’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();"

Currently UUpdates simply passes along whatever the site uses as their description. Unfortunately that is in fact what is in the description field for that blog. Other fun descriptions on UUpdates include "Just another WordPress.com weblog" which appears to be the default for new WordPress blogs.

So, unfortunately that is the site's description. I do clean out tags and other elements that are obviously HTML, but this one is not obvious enough to get parsed out. Ideally sites would have useful descriptions that I could pass along, which is the way it works for the majority of sites.

I am not sure the best way to handle this type of situation. Suggestions?
