Fixed RSS links problem

    Hi, I added a feed to the RSS feeder and played around with a variation of {title} {content} {author} {link} in the meassage template.

    In none of the preview was the link url clickable, it was just text. So I tried deleting all of the tokens, leaving the message template blank and hit preview and there was the clickable link. Perfect.

    However when I tried to save, I got a popup message saying The following error occurred: Please enter a message template. This despite the fact that directly below the message template is text saying:

    The feed I am using does not give any content, just a URL link so I really need it to be clickable. Any suggestions please?

    Did you try BB code?

    Code:
    [url={link}]{link}[/url]

    Hi Jake, no I hadn't but I have now and it works, thank you!

    Can you explain the bit that says "You may leave these fields blank to include the content provided by the feed" yet it won't let me save if the field is blank?

    Yeah that description is wrong. Moving to bugs.

    There was code to handle this being empty (just imports the content), so I've allowed that now.
