I also changed each instance of the following line in asual.vm, asual-column.vm, rdf.vm, rss2.vm, rss.vm, mobile-xhtml.vm, wml.vm, atom-1.0.vm, atom.vm and text.vm templates. I am not sure if I needed to change all of the files but, it has not hurt anything!

#foreach($entry in $BLOJSOM_ENTRIES)

Now, if I could get the calendar to recognize the aggregated posts, I would be very happy!
