Does not refresh RSS feeds (6 posts)

    Have installed the Supper RSS Reader. It look ok by when installed.

    Unfortunately it does not update the feeds once installed. I - like most - use the W3 cache. Is there a way to make sure the plugin refresh the feed?

    I have the same issue. I love the plugin but it only seems to refresh over night so it is a day out of date.

    I am getting a feed from a wordpress site hosted with godaddy which is up to date when I view the feed which is being pulled into Super RSS reader to another WP site on a Rackspace hosted server.

    It was also doing the same thing when I had a test site hosted with Cloudnext?

    It's at shame as I am going to have to look for an alternative.

    The feed url is: http://trendjournal.mudpie.co.uk/?feed=rss2

    The website with supper RSS is: http://www.mpdclick.com

    Super RSS Reader uses WordPress's default RSS engine for fetching feeds.

    So inorder to refresh feeds, you need to add a filter to WordPress. Add the below code to the function.php file of your theme.

    add_filter( 'wp_feed_cache_transient_lifetime', create_function('$a', 'return 1800;') );

    Here 1800 indicates 30 minutes. Change this according to your needs.

    Note: Constantly refreshing feed cache will slow down your server and website. So it is a good idea to leave it to the default.

    I really like this plugin and am still using it. But I would like to offer a word of caution, if you are using the theme responsive DO NOT add this filter, you will not be able to update any of your files, pages or posts, or access the admin login page. The only way I was able to fix this is by deleting the function.php page from my child theme and recreating it with out this function.

    After some experimentation I have found that when using the theme responsive if you place the filter in the function.php page of the theme files it will work correctly.
