    Did anything changed with HF working with Google news? I have three sites that they all stopped pulling feeds from google news! They were working just fine up to a day ago.

    thanks

    HungryFEED hasn't had an update for a few months. You might have a look at the raw rss feed coming from google and see if it's showing an error or something

    The following works on a new domain but not the older ones:
    [hungryfeed url="http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&gl=us&q=gigi+chao&um=1&ie=UTF-8&output=rss" template="3"]

    I even deactivated all other plugings from my test domain, and still no luck with google news.

    The differece is though the domain that the feed is working is not hosted on HostGator!! If that has anything to do with it. But HF is getting all other feeds on the Hostgator host - it's only the google news.

    Here is the error

    HungryFEED can't get feed. Don't be mad at HungryFEED. SimplePie reported: A feed could not be found at http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&gl=us&q=gigi+chao&um=1&ie=UTF-8&output=rss. A feed with an invalid mime type may fall victim to this error, or SimplePie was unable to auto-discover it.. Use force_feed() if you are certain this URL is a real feed.

    Thank you

    you might try adding force_feed="1" to your shortcode parameters and see if that helps
