As I loop through each 'item' the built arrays seem fine but I can't access the variables past 'description' leaving me unable to access 'publisher', 'creator' and 'date' of each item. 'title' 'link' and 'description' are printing just fine.

Any clues? Accessing the other variables gives me an empty string.

PHP Code:
// GRAB THE XML AND STORE THEIR DATA
        
$data simplexml_load_file($row['google_blogs_url']);
        
        
// print_r($data);
        
        
foreach($data->channel->item as $entry) {
            
            
$title $entry->title;
            
$link $entry->link;
            
$description $entry->description;
            
$publisher $entry->publisher;  // COMING UP EMPTY
            
$creator $entry->creator;  // COMING UP EMPTY
            
$date $entry->date;  // COMING UP EMPTY
            
            
echo $title."<br />";
            echo 
$link."<br />";
            echo 
$description."<br />";
            echo 
$publisher."<br />";
            echo 
$creator."<br />";
            echo 
$date."<br /><hr /><br />";
