CFFeed Gotcha

I ran into a problem with cffeed tonight. If you are creating an RSS feed, and you use a query to populate the feed, keep in mind that when you create the columnMap structure, your column names might need to be upper case.I am using MySQL, and in my database the column names are all lower case (as well as in my query to retrieve the records). I kept getting an error that a column name didn’t exists in the query. After a lot of hair pulling, I finally tried making the column names upper case (like they are in the docs), and it worked. I’m not sure if this is a problem with my setup only (I’m also on Linux), but you should keep this in mind for future cffeed adventures. 🙂
