  • Yep but there is a fallback to metascraper [0] which does check the HTML tags. However the fallback didn't work in case GPT returns a 1970 date -- I just fixed this! [1]

    I think you can now remove the date from your post content and it should still work. If you submit your website again it should do a re-scrape if you changed the content text. Thanks for catching this :)

  • awesome-website-paths

  • Awesome! I recently started an "Awesome Website Paths" [1] repository. I didn't know about /ideas, and I haven't tracked /about yet. I'll add them later tonight and point both to https://aboutideasnow.com for now. In the past I've had each endpoint mention a specific page that's dedicated to the endpoint. I can make an exception until I find one of those dedicated pages, but I'll make sure to still keep a reference to your site. Thanks for sharing!
