This afternoon I noticed that on Facebook my notes were not updating. The feed I am importing is my WordPress blog feed routed through Feedburner and disseminated through Feedburner to various social sites around the web.
Initially I searched the WP forums for some answers and came across a 3 month old topic that gave some options. One of them was to deactivate WP-Supercache. I did that, but got nowhere.
I did some other research and found that Feedburner is apparently not updating for other people as well. Initially I assumed that the error message I was getting on the Feedburner end: “An error occurred connecting to the URL: Periscope simulated timeout expired”, was due to some error on my site.
However, I have since deactivated Feedburner Feedsmith plugin and changed the feed url on facebook from the feedburner generated url to the rss2 feed url that WP generates for my blog. This updated url worked on facebook and the notes are current with my personal blog.
I have to assume this means the problem is with Feedburner and not with WordPress or any plugin on my site. Can any WordPress gurus verify that my logic is sound?
If it is not, can anyone please tell me what they think is wrong so that I can reactivate feedburner?
