Sorting of RSS data
I'm quite new at this coding-thing and hope that you can help me out.
On my website www.visitmariagerfjord.dk i have put a RSS feed, wich shows the upcoming events in my munincipality. But they are not sorted properly...
The articles shown in the RSS are events. The event-date is written in the title and in order for me to sort them by the event-date i sort them by the title in the code.
BUT this makes it sort the articles by only the first letter in the title
sthat it i.e. looks like this:
11. december: event 1
2. december: event 2
4-5. december: event 3
what have i done wrong? here is the code i used:
