    I am having a problem with an amazon bestseller feed. It displays the list of bestsellers out of order. Please see: http://alatteaboutcoffee.com/best-selling-single-cup-coffee-maker/

    Is there anything i can do to fix this?

    The default order that HungryFEED displays is the exact order that the RSS Feed returns the items (usually it is date based). You can optionally use order="reverse" or order="random" to your shortcode to change the order. At the moment those are the only options.

    I'm having the same problem. I think it's due to a bug in Simplepie.

    The Amazon bestsellers rss is a top 10 list, with all the items having the same timestamp. For example: http://www.amazon.co.uk/rss/bestsellers/kids
    You can see from this that they're listed in the correct order.

    But when I use that url with Hungryfeed they show in a different order. I suspected Simplepie could be responsible, so I went to the demo page on the Simplepie site (http://simplepie.org/demo/), and when I entered the Amazon url above they showed in the same incorrect order I get with Hungryfeed.

    Using order="none" fixes the problem
