  • I’ve been waiting for my new post to show up on my feed for 4 hours now. Not sure what’s going on…

    Ok I think this is something to do with the bug I read on another post – I just switched back to the “ugly” default for permalinks and all the posts are showing up on my rss feed.

    This solution sucks! Anyone know of progress to have best of both? polite URIs and RSS that works?

    Click my name. Tell me how my feed doesn’t work?

    Clearly, you might be getting a bit over-excited!

    Granted, I have no examples to look at (anyone want to put a link to their busted RSS feed here?) so we can only guess and ask questions.

    a) What version of WordPress are you using.
    b) Any caching plugins installed/enabled?
    c) Anything under /wp-content/cache ? If so, does anything change after you delete the contents?
    d) What plugins are you running?

    a) WP 2.0.2; RSS 2.0
    b) caching disabled
    c) /wp-contents/cache folder was removed weeks ago
    d) Adhesive, Recent Comments, Recent Posts, Admin Menu, Search Pages, Verify Login, and E-mail Notification 2.3.1

    thanks for feedback so far …

    Ok John, what are we after with your scenario? What isn’t working?

    I grabbed your main comments feed and it appears to match what I see on your blog:

    I grabbed a comments feed from one of your posts and saw info that appears to match as well:

    How are you testing? I’m just using Firefox and glancing at the generated xml and comparing it to what I see on your blog. If you’re also testing with a browser, be sure to either clear the browser cache or ctrl-F5 to force a reload.

    I’m using Bloglines, Yahoo and Google — and the update are not showing on any of them. It DOES seem to be a problem with the aggregators and not with WP. They ALL apparently stick with the first XML they get and not go after a new one(?)

    I found that I can foce these aggregators to go get a new XML by changing the format on the blog for Permalinks (changed it from Date and Name to Default). Bingo, with the new URI for the feed, the aggregator goes out and gets it right. At first I though it must work better with “Default” (cat=4) style, but NO. ONce the aggrergator has fetched that feed once, It seems to retire. I can find no way to force it to update — browser cache cleared, nada.

    So now I’m back to the prettier permalinks, and i get this discrepancy — using the category Jazbox feed as my example:

    The URI is

    In Bloglines, when I use the URI I get an ancient result — one of the two posts hasn’t existed four five hours!

    But in my browser if I type that same URI I get, of coure, the raw XML, AND IT IS CORRECT — has the two correct posts, and not the ancient one that Bloglines insists on still displaying.

    S I’m sure that WP is outputting it correctly, and that ALL THREE of the aggregators I’ve tried all cache and do not update for hours/days/months?

    I’ve testeed this teory on THIS BLOG (WP SUPPORT) and it is just as bad here! my earlier ABCD response to you, your response to me are both missing from the feed on all three aggregators. EVEN WHEN I switch browsers from Firefox to IE (ergo no browser cache; and cookies in a different location)!!

    Go figure!

    Just checked again, on a different PC, and Bloblines still has the last posting on THIS blog at yours beginning “Click my name …”

    Here’s an interesting exchange:

    I’ve received a reply from Bloglines that they are acknowledging errors … but no explanation. And this does not explain similar failures to post on Yahoo and Google. However, I can demonstrate that the problem is not coming from WordPress and it is not related to using or not using permalinks.
