I'm a long-time happy user of YARPP, but for the past month it's been destroying my RSS feed.
With a PHP RAM limit of 32M, generating the RSS feed (10 items) fails with an out-of-memory error. I'm calling
related_posts() manually (with the auto-emit disabled in the plugin options).
It's easily and consistently repeatable. When I comment out the one line of code that calls
related_posts() it works fine.
This is never a problem when it renders related posts in single-post HTML view. I'm also calling
related_posts() manually for that view.
What else I've tried:
- Tried increasing memory to 64M, but then after a longer CPU delay the Apache thread dies completely. I've tried with as much as 500M with the same effect. I don't believe it's actually a memory requirement but rather just something triggering the error.
- Tried previous versions of YARPP all the way up to v3.1.5. Same behavior.
- Tried executing
related_posts( array(), false )and emitting the resulting string myself rather than letting it emit directly into the stream; same behavior.
- Tried truncating the two YARPP database tables so it rebuilds the cache. Same behavior.
Please let me know what else I can do to help diagnose this problem! I self-host so I can twiddle any setting and change any file.
Thanks! I love YARPP and recommend it to others but this is critical.
