Support » Plugin: WP RSS Aggregator » Doesn't get new feed item even though cron is up

  • Resolved nolash74


    My site was down for awhile and when I reactivated it feeds were fetched once, it seems, but now new items aren’t being fetched, even though the cron seems to be working (and manual updates make a difference either). The feeds have new items – they’re mostly big international news media feeds. Any ideas on how to debug this? (My php is good enough to screw around under the hood)

    Hello again. Now suddenly TWO of the feeds got updated, but none of the others. I tried poking around a bit in the database etc, but couldn’t at first glance find any settings to play around with.

    I’m not asking you to solve the problem for me, but give me some pointers on where in the code/database to look. Thanks!

    Hi nolash,

    There should be an update for version 4.2.2. Can you try updating? It might solve the problem.

    Have you taken a look at this page? There might be a solution there that works for you.

    If you are interested, the settings are stored in the wp_options table. If you search for all fields that contain (%LIKE%) wprss_settings, you will find all the settings used by the plugin.

    The feed sources and feed items are custom post type wprss_feed and wprss_feed_item respectively. All data that the plugin adds to them is stored as post meta.

    However, I do not encourage that you modify the settings. They are the settings that can be found from RSS Aggregator > Settings. As for the post types, you can check if perhaps the items are in fact being imported into your database, but not shown in your WordPress admin. If that is the case, we will need to debug this further.

    Also, we are about to release an update that fixes some importing problems when feeds update every (or less than) 10 minutes. It might help solve your issue.
