    I have upgraded to WordPress 2.8.2. KB Advanced RSS Widget will only allow once instance in the sidebar. There appears to be an issue. Does anyone have a fix??

    I am having the same issue... Only one instance of KB Advanced RSS Widget no matter how many I set in the "How many KB Advanced RSS widgets would you like?" box. I hope someone can come up with a fix for this!

    i am running 2.8 and still having same issue. But i am relatively new to this plugin. I got a question for you guys. Did it worked before 2.8 upgrade?? If so, that means something within 2.8 upgrade had caused it to stop working. I am looking into it right now. Not a programmer, but i can take a look at the codes to see if i can tweak it to work again.

    This plugin is awesome and gets everything i need in parts of customization. Looks like the guy that design this is no longer supporting it. This is one of the best RSS plugin i have seen so far.

    Same problem, only one widget available and you can't load it anyway (this on WP 2.8.2). Infuriating! I had a stack of feeds loaded and have lost them all.

    Apparently the author no longer supports it and the default RSS widget doesn't appear to work with most of my feeds (can't connect to ...)

    I just tried the standard rss widget and although the url works in Firefox (and Safari), when I installed it in the widget, it got the message that it couldn't connect. So I assume that the problem lies with WP itself.

    This is the URL: electronicIraq.net/news/rss.xml

    So far, I've managed to get only two feeds working.

    Y'know, I find this way of getting help extremely frustrating. I acknowledge that there are a lot of wP users but even so, I've left msgs on this problem lots of times and our friend the moderator tells us,

    "strange...I have 2 instances running on my test blog - 2.9-rare

    Which might be okay for him, esp. as he's testing it on a version none of us possess but what about us?

    PS: I have also tried almost every other alt. RSS plugin I could find and none of them work.

    Should be fixed in the version of the plugin that I just uploaded.

    FYI, I don't follow comment threads at WP.org. If you want me to see your support questions, post them at my site.

    Hi,
    Okay, my hosting co needs to know the Magpie URL so that I can get my RSS feeds to work.
