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

  • Resolved asle


    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

    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!
