Support » Fixing WordPress » RSS, updated entries not shown as updated

  • Resolved JackSim

    I noticed something wrong with syndication in version .72.
    If an entry is edited, the feed is not seen as updated by aggregators since WP sends a ‘304 Not Modified’ header.
    The problem is, there is no ‘modification_date’ field in the database, and the RSS scripts only check if a new article has been posted, NOT modified.
    BTW my WP-powered site is live at http://www.echodutrient.ch/

    Yep, your report has been heared. Some changes are on their way, but it might take some time until they are usable at all.

    This bugged me too and is the reason I didn’t put the same technique into the Comments RSS feed (If you delete comment SPAM, you want it gone *now*). A work-around for the time being is to change the last post time by 1 second.
