Support » Plugin: WP RSS Multi Importer » There were no new feed items to add. Not True

  • Resolved garystriplett


    I use a Fedora OS and upgraded from FC17 to FC19. All worked perfectly prior to this upgrade. Now, when I press the “Click to Fetch Feeds Now” button, I get “There were no new feed items to add.”. During this query, the site stalls until the “There were no new feed items to add.” message appears. This is not true as articles from the 100+ feeds to be queried have new items every few minutes.

    What’s in CRON output:

    CRON is working. Update notification and etc arrive as normal. New articles, however, are posted between the hours of 10PM and 2PM, ever 30 minutes instead of 10 minutes, as I have set in the “feed to post” options.

    Pages with [Shortcode] work perfectly and retrieve current feeds correctly.

    Very difficult for me to decide if it is a problem with the system “time”, anacron, a combination or the way your plug-in determines time… or something else entirely.

    Any ideas? Thank you, Mr. Weiss.

    i’m trying to isolate a possible bug in the most recent update…if you want, here is a link to the previous version

    Thank you for your recent updates. The recent version functions very well. I have found only one issue:
    On the “Feed to Post” tab
    Target Window (when link clicked, where should it open?) “open in same window” or “open in new window” will only open in the same window, regardless of which is selected.

    Thank you.

    Not sure this a bug, as you can see here I can change which window opens by selecting the option

    What I do know, however, is whether this will work or not depends on the browser settings…are you sure your browser isn’t set to open one way or another?

    I can look at articles posted some time ago with “Open in New Window” selected and it does open those older posts in a new window/tab. ie

    If you haven’t found this to be an issue with the latest release, then I will look at other possible reasons why the target=”_blank” statement is not functioning.

    Not sure what to say..if the hyperlink has target=”_blank” then it should open in a new window (or tab, depending on how your browser works).

    The Firefox “Inspector” shows no target=”_blank for links in new posts. So, either the statement wasn’t placed in the page code while posting or it has been removed subsequently. This is why I ask you to be sure that you have found no problem with this feature in “WP RSS Multi Importer”. If not, then I will look elsewhere for something that is removing the target=”_blank statement from posts.

    Thank you for your kind assistance.

    If I manually edit a post and add target=”_blank to links, they will open in a new tab/window.

    hmm…do you have any plugins that could be doing this…usually its a plugin that is running javascript and changing the hyperlinks.

    I have no plugins that have, in the past, caused this problem as links would open in a new window/tab. It is possible that an upgraded plugin may perform differently.

    However, I have been looking through import_posts.php and found class=”colorbox”.

    }elseif ($targetWindow==1){

    This seems to be what is rendering:

    can you show me a url where this is happening on your site?

    Plugin Author Allen


    actually, do you have the option for putting videos into an iframe checked? If so, turn that off and see if you still have the problem.

    Yes, I do have the video iframe checked and that works well.

    I have commented out $openWindow and placed target=”_blank” directly in import_posts.php as such:

    //$myLinkTitle='<a href='.$myLink.' '.$openWindow.'>'.$myTitle.'</a>';  // change how the link opens here
    $myLinkTitle='<a href='.$myLink.' target="_blank">'.$myTitle.'</a>';  // change how the link opens here

    This now creates posts with the target=”_blank” intact rather than class=”colorbox”

    I can keep searching and find the problem, but this fix is working for me.

    Is there anything I can do to help?

    Plugin Author Allen


    no..I’ll fix the problem…it’s tricky because this came from the code to allow people to embed videos, so I’ll need to find a way to make both work.

    Thank you very much for helping me with WP RSS Multi Importer on . Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

    Plugin Author Allen


    ok..try replacing these two files

    I think this should solve the problem..let me know if it doesn’t.
