I've set up a basic feed for news updates, but when trying to access it, I get an AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'startswith'.

This fixes it for me:

from django.conf import settings

def add_domain(domain, url):

+ if url and not url.startswith('http://'):

url = u'http://%s%s' % (domain, url)

return url

Not sure if I've set something up wrong or not, but with this patch, the feed works as expected.

I'm running off the latest SVN revision.

This is a documentation bug, not a code bug. I believe that all of the places where we call add_domain require a real URL, it is not optional in the feed specs (need to check all the specs to make sure, though). So we shouldn't let people avoid having URLs in these places.

A better error message wouldn't kill us in those cases, too -- explaining where the URL was forgotten.
