    RSS Datetime formatting

    Hi,

    I'm important an RSS feed with the date time field formatted as such: Wed, 8 Jul 2015 15:18:25 EST

    Shouldn't the following date format match this? ddd, d MMM yyy hh:mm:ss EST

    I keep getting an error when important saying that the field does not contain a valid datetime value.

    Thanks!

    Amir

    Hi,

    Only 3 y's or is that a typo?

    Good catch, typo. Same result when corrected though...

    RFC1123 pattern date.

    ddd, dd MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss 'GMT'

    For some reason, this one takes capital H

    Still the same error. I'm wondering if it is something with CMSImport and converting datetime.

    Found this

    http://www.richardsoeteman.net/CategoryView,category,CMSImport.aspx

    It's old but maybe can help, entry about one-third of the way down the page on correcting date time errors in CMS Import.

    So close, here's the correct format, the leading 0 in front of the numerical date is what was throwing everything off.

    ddd, d MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss EST
