First Post is finally up! This wasn't on the top of my to-do list, but with only a week to go before the #readerpocalypse I bumped it up so I had somewhere to take my feeds... I'm using dobrado reader, which depends on SimplePie to do all the hard stuff. There's still lots to do to make it a decent alternative, but at least I'm up and running on my own server with free software. :-)

The only thing I changed in the SimplePie library was to add a date to items if the parser didn't find one. The problem I have with the parser skipping dates is that I'm using SimplePie in multifeed mode, which will only sort items by date if they all have dates. So basically one bad item would make the feed unreadable. Good news is it's working great now!
