[resolved] RSS feed not showing up / timing out (4 posts)

    Not urgent.

    I've only just discovered the RSS feed concept so want to start pushing it out. I entered my shortcode to see what the URL was anf it's http://www.whatsoncardiff.net/events/rss/ . This however times out if you put it into the address bar. I checked the feed at http://www.rssboard.org/rss-validator/docs/error/HttpError.html and have the following error:

    "HTTP Error
    Explanation
    Your feed couldn't be validated because there was a problem downloading it from the web server. You should try to diagnose this using a web browser, and make sure that the URL you supplied resolves to an accessible file.
    This usually means that the URL was wrong, or that permissions on the server don't allow us to fetch that file. The error shows the message that the server sent, which may help.
    Solution
    Make sure this URL can be downloaded with a browser, then try again."

    I remember seeing the feed many months ago as it was feeding through to a blogging platform, but annoying as duplcate events were coming out hundreds of times. Anyway - can't think anything has changed since then. Now there is nothing.

    Thankyou.

    Hi,

    can I know what EM version you are currently using? also, just to narrow down the problem have you tried to temporarily:

    - deactivating all other plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).
    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems

    also, try to turn-on WP_DEBUG or check your php logs to see if there's any other error.

    Hi it's the latest version of Events Manager, once again it was the memory - I have changed the the php.ini file to 512m and htacccess file to unlimited - this now works - however takes three minutes to download. As I have thousands of events I will have to limit the output to just show 1 months worth - Looking forward to trying to achieve that - NOT :).

    Thankyou.

    The best events plugin for wordpress

    eek... that's a long time! 1000 events loading at once is probably the cause

    you can limit the number changing one line, which is in /events-manager/templates/templates/rss.php

    $EM_Events = EM_Events::get( array('scope'=>'future', 'owner'=>false ) );

    to something like

    $EM_Events = EM_Events::get( array('scope'=>'month', 'owner'=>false ) );
