What is the feed url that you are trying to use?

Hi, this is the url:

http://newsrss.bbc.co.uk/rss/sportonline_uk_edition/football/scot_prem/rss.xml

I checked and its a valid feed. Maybe i havent completed the installation correctly somehow but it appears to be installed ok.

Hi, since today it happens somtimes that the newsbot is posting a feed double.
What is the correct setting for the "check-time" ? The same as for my cronjob?

Regards, Christian

I have modded m y installation so that it would support international cahracters. Is there any way I  can upgrade to this version w/o uninstallin the current one? What are the changes specifically for the new features - I could patch them by hand if I knew what/where.

Please check using either a file manager provided by your host (if they offer CPanel then it will be called File Manager) or an ftp client and see if your cronrss.php file is in place as it should be and that it is not of 0 size.

Assuming that it is there and intact you will need to ask your host regarding the server error as it is a hosting issue.

Hi there. Just a quick question: does this mod works with blogspot feeds already? If yes, pls help coz I can't make it work. I dont have any error but I dont have any post, too. Thanks.

perro88

The mod it's working perfect in a lot of feeds but feeds like this one http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/world for example, it posts some mess. I even tried with a admin as poster of the feeds and enabling the html into posts but still a mess(but not so much as without html :P, well this might be because of other mods). Can anyone checks if can add this feed just for testing and tell me if it's working ok?. thanks for the mod, really good mod

@ perro88

While the feed you mention is basically valid it has a lot of issues that are the likely cause of your problems with it...sadly no feed reader (of any kind) can guarantee an ability to work properly with poorly constructed feeds.

This mod works great for me, but I can't get one feed to work. The feed works in my Google Reader but not in the mod. This is the feed:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/weirdindia

I have another feed that ends with the slash and the name of the site just like the one above, for example ( /sitename)  and it works fine. Any way I can make this work?

That is an atom based feed and not RSS which is not supported
