    Hi there. Anyone having trouble loading the comment rss (the one on the main page, not each entry's comment)?

    I have one blog which never have a problem with the comment RSS, admist all the upgrades. (http://blog.bohemianphilosophy.com)

    I then decided to move to another directory (same domain, server at http://www.bohemianphilosophy.com/blog) which fail to load new comments instantly. I thought it's the new theme I installed but then I notice the same problem happen to another blog I installed a while ago at: http://www.makansingapore.com/talk

    I adjusted the time accordingly, remove the feed:http and it doesn't load. I tested it on three different aggregators (Abilon, Sage & Active Web Reader) and doesn't seem to work at all.

    I could only delete the entire Comment RSS link and then re-add again to my aggregator.

    Please help! Thanks!

    Hi macmanx, thanks for checking. Yes, there is nothing wrong with the links.

    The thing is, there seems to be either a delay or the new comment never shows up on the RSS. Perhaps I am not specific enough. I always have the RSS feed in my feed aggregator, which load all the comments. Then, I make a new comment, it is not being shown on my aggregator at all. I tested on three different aggregators and all churned out the same result (i.e. the absence of the new comment).

    If the comment is in the feed rss from the direct link then it will show up in the feed aggregator in time.

    How do you mean, Beel? I'm a bit confused...

    If the comment shows up in the feed...
    http://www.makansingapore.com/talk/?feed=comments-rss2
    but does not show up in your aggregator, then it is probably because it is cached and will show up at the next scheduled retrieval. There is also the possibility, I guess, that there is something in the feed that "breaks" in the aggregator (but if it validates that shouldn't be the problem).

    I use CG-Feedread and I believe it caches a feed for 6 hours before fetching it again (of course I could make it more frequent).

    I think I know what you mean, Beel after all. Didn't dawn me until I re-look at the link

    Replace this:
    http://www.bohemianphilosophy.com/blog/?feed=comments-rss2

    With this:
    http://www.bohemianphilosophy.com/blog/wp-commentsrss2.php
