querying blog list RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm creating a web part that is going to query the blog list in a blog site. I'm able to pull the columns out just fine, however, when I try to query the {Body} column to get the actual text of the blog, I'm getting [undefined]. I'm using SPServices for my calls

    my code looks like this:

     operation: "GetListItems",
                    async: true,
                    listName: "Posts",
                    CAMLQuery:  "<Query><OrderBy><FieldRef Name='PublishedDate' Ascending='True' /></OrderBy></Query>",
                     CAMLRowLimit: 5,
                    completefunc: function (xData, Status) {
                        $(xData.responseXML).SPFilterNode("z:row").each(function () {
                       	    title = $(this).attr("ows_Title");
                         	    description = $(this).attr("ows_Body");

    and I get [undefined] when trying to query the ows_body, however, if I use U2U CAML Query Builder, the text in the body column queried but it has HTML tags in it, could that be the cause of the [undefined] error message?

    any suggestions on querying that column from the blog list for my web part?

  • I fixed it, I had to add [body] to the default view and it worked
