Support » Plugin: WP RSS Aggregator - Automatic and Powerful Content Aggregation and Curation » Feeds not importing but can see preview

    I have looked at the help pages for feeds not importing. I see no errors in the log. I have tried to delete and reinstall the plugin. The RSS urls are all valid. Still it does not import anything. I tried to set it up on another server and it worked great out of the box. Where do I start to investigate? I can see the feed preview but when “imported items” says 0 and when I click fetch items it works for some time and stops. Nothing is imported.

  • Hi @asle,

    Have you checked your cron status? To check it, you will need to install the WP Crontrol plugin and then visit the Tools > Cron Events page.

    Please check if you see any bad cron on this page, as shown here.

    Thanks @erricgunawan. I tried to install the plugin on another server and my own machine and it worked fine with the same feed. So I suspected it must be the server with this site.

    I checked cron to see what was happening when I clicked “Fetch items”. The request was coming from my server and seemed to be blocked (at least no response). I found that my own IP was blocked in .htaccess!

    deny from 181.xxx.xxx.0/24

    Removing this line from .htaccess fixed everything. It must be WordFence that has written this rule.

    Hope this could help anyone else with problems fetching items .

    Glad to hear you can get it work, @asle.

    Thanks for sharing your solution here and thanks also for your review. We really appreciate it!

    Have a great weekend!
