Where did it go?

My last post a couple of days ago, What I Would Like To See, seemed to have hit the Ironman bitbucket :(

There is no mention of Perl in the article (a first for me for probably over a year!). But it is tagged with “perl” and “ironman”. Is there an issue with WordPress tags? Is ironman only seeing WordPress categories (which were “blogging” and “programming” for this post).

Thought I better check what my WordPress RSS feed is spewing out using XML::Feed:

use 5.012;
use warnings;
use XML::Feed;

my $feed = XML::Feed->parse(URI->new('http://transfixedbutnotdead.com/feed'))
    or die XML::Feed->errstr;

for my $entry ($feed->entries) {
    say $entry->title;
    for my $category ($entry->category) {
        say "\t", $category;
    }
}

What came back was this:

	What I Would Like To See
		Blogging
		Programming
		perl
		ironman
	Perl block with lexically-scoped method delegation
		Programming
		perl
		Devel::Declare
		dsl
	PDL advert get its 15 minutes of fame!
		Programming
		PDL
		perl
		stackoverflow
	Perlcast website is back
		Blogging
		Programming
		perl
		perlcast
	Podcasts & Perl
		Programming
		perl
		podcast
	Famous Perl programmers
		Programming
		perl
		python
		django
	Caralyst 5.8: The Perl MVC Framework
		Programming
		catalyst
		perl
	Perl ads on Stackoverflow
		Programming
		perl
		stackoverflow
	Two questions… similar answers… same module
		Programming
		moose
		perl
	The unlikely intersection of Boy George and Damian Conway
		Programming
		london.pm
		perl

Both the WordPress tags & categories were coming through has RSS categories. I believe this is correct so why hasn’t Ironman picked up the “What I Would Like To See” post?

So is having Perl, CPAN or ironman in the content mandatory?

    I have not looked at the source code of the IronMan but I think that’s the key. The content of the post must have Perl in it or maybe some other keyword can do as well.

    The tagline says:
    Only showing posts tagged “perl”, “cpan” or “ironman” (or containing those words).

    It’s a pity they don’t have a link to their source code at the top of the Ironman page.
