Support » Fixing WordPress » RSS Feed don't seem to update

  • Hello, I run the blogs:
    http://ahana.uddenfeldt.net
    http://recipes.uddenfeldt.net (swedish but google translate is available on the page)

    My problem is that I try to use RSSGraffitti on Facebook to share my recipes blog, but I’ve noticed the same problem with my personal ahana.uddenfeldt.net. The RSS feeds takes a long time before they update, almost 2 days. Is this normal? I want my posts to show up instantly on facebook when I post them. I know it’s possible through wordpress.com blogs, but how to make it work properly when you have installed wordpress on your own domain?

    I got the latest wordpress version, and the only plugins I have is gtranslate and addsig, but deactivating them does not make any change. It’s still same problem.. The RSS feed does not update when I post. What to do?

  • Is it actually that your feed is updating slowly? ie, when you publish new content, how long does it take to show up here?

    If it’s immediate, then the problem isn’t with WordPress but with RSSGraffiti or Facebook. A tool like RSSGraffiti probably has hundreds, if not thousands, of RSS feeds being piped through it, so it may not be looking at your sites as often as you’d like.

    I use this Facebook app to get links to my WordPress posts published to my Facebook profile. It works pretty well.

    Thank you, but it’s on

    that the latest post does not show up immediate, not on facebook. But i’m gonna try friendsfeed if it’s still slow once the feed actually update as it should.

    In my experience, yes, RSS Graffitti (and Facebook) are unreliable with their cron fetches. Probably nature of the beast :/

    As I said, my problem is that the feed itself is slow, the apps on facebook might make it even slower to show up on facebook but the feed itself is slow if someone actually should add it to their rss feed program

    Are you using any caching plugins? And if so, are they caching RSS?

    Don’t know, only plugins I use is gtranslate (google translate) and Addsig(for signature)

    WordPress autogenerates the feed right away on access, same as it does for the front of your site. There’s no built in delay. Post is made, if you went and looked at RSS directly right then, it would be updated. If your feed READER is delayed, that’s a different matter.

    Double check your plugins, but unless gtranslate’s causing a delay to translate (unlikely), are you SURE that going DIRECTLY to http://ahana.uddenfeldt.net/?feed=rss2 after you post is NOT showing the newest post?

    Actually I’ve nver gone directly to rss after, I have always gone to the frontpage in between first. Thanks gonna try this! If I don’t reply again it prob worked 😉 Thanks!
