    right…if the feeds are down, then the plugin won’t work since it relies on good feeds.

    Should be a very important point on your ToDo list in my opinion. If the plugin can’t get an answer from the current feed within 3-4 secs, jump to the next feed and so on.

    right now, if there is a feed that is throwing an error, the program goes on to the next feed (unless there is only one feed, at which time it will say there is an error). Now, since SimplePie is the program I use to fetch the feeds, I’m not sure if they have a timer that can tell how long they are trying to fetch the feed and let me set that timer…I’ll need to look into this.

    great… also, if the plugin is working for you, if you haven’t had a chance, take a second and rate the plugin by going to

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-rss-multi-importer/

    It helps other people know whether they should try it or not.

    I’ve just discovered this problem myself, where a dead feed (these are external feeds we cannot control remember) makes this plugin pause for 10 seconds. If you can tell me where i can edit the timeout for feeds, i can lower this to 2-3 seconds.

    Hi,
    I’m working on a new version of the plugin that will store the feeds in the database and process this in the background (this is all for the shortcode option). If you want to try this out, let me know…it’s still in early beta but will solve this problem because if the feed is down, it won’t pull new information but this will all occur in the background.

    I can test it, i assume putting in a fake rss feed will create the dead feed issue so i can test to see pauses for time?

    Ok…contact me at

    and I’ll send you the files and instructions either later today or tomorrow after I’ve done a bit more testing.
