[resolved] Which RSS plugin given server constraints (6 posts)

    Hi all,
    We are running a WordPress site on our organisation's server (big, bureaucratic). However, RSS feeds in WordPress do not appear to be working. The IT department tells me a few Joomla sites do use RSS feeds, but they can't find an example for me.

    Now my question is: how to find out which plugin would work - without trying every RSS plugin?

    Thanks!

    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: There are no HTTP transports available which can complete the requested request.

    That seems to be the issue. Any reader not relying on this?

    That sounds like a server issue - not a WordPress one.

    It does, however as Joomla sites are apparently able to retrieve RSS feeds, there must be a way I figured. Just hoping WordPress offers this way as well.

    OK I finally figured something out, are there any RSS plugins that do not use CURL or f(socket)open?

    I noticed a javascript worked to retrieve the feed. using http://feed2js.org/ now.
