Feed generation for Podcast XML


I'm new to the forum but have been using MP3tag for ages! :slight_smile:

I am trying to create an export configuration to generate a podcast XML feed. I can provide most of the metadata I need in the file tags themselves, so to generate a new feed with very few clicks, but I can't seem to find a way of creating RFC822 formatted dates required by the RSS specification (e.g. Sat, 04 Sep 2011 21:49:53 GMT.
I thought of using a regexp on the long date, but I'd have to sub /01/ for jan, all the way through to December, and have no way of getting the day out of the date using that.

My only other concern is that of sorting; I can $loop by a fieldname, is the system intelligent enough to handle dates? Can I adjust ascending or descending sort?

Thanks for any advice!
