I had an RSS feed for flickr coming into my sidebar. I do use the flickrRss plug-in. After upgrading to 2.8 the feed no longer works. In fact, I've tried several feeds just using the built in RSS parser and nothing will feed in. SimplePie doesn't work--I get a cURL error on every RSS feed I try.
Anyone else having this problem or have an idea how I can solve it? I'd be happy if I could just get flickrRSS to start feeding my sidebar again.
