How do I get external feeds to update when they change?

  • Problem
  • Updated 7 years ago
I had a date wrong in a Picasa folder, and didn't realize it until I entered in my Timeline. I fixed it in Picasa, and even deleted the feed in my timeline. I checked the folder, and it is now showing the right date. When I reentered the feed into my timeline, I found that it had not updated it. How do I get it to re-pull the correct data, or is there a way that I can manually update it?

Hi ustice, Dipity scans for updates to your RSS feed every hour, and automatically updates your timelines.

If this isn't happening for a timeline can you let us know which one?

Hi ustice, I checked with engineering and realized that a few feeds were in fact getting missed in the update. This is all fixed now, so if you go back to the timeline now it will be fixed and updated.

Thanks!

It's still listed as Nov 27, 1987 8:20 AM. When it should be October 31, 2006 (That what I have set in Picasa web.) Are yall cacheing results for longer than an hour?

I am also not seeing anything from December 5, 2006 to November 20, 2007, even though I have posts that were published within that time.

Hey guys, sorry about this, our feed updater has been having a hard time keeping up everyone's feeds. We're working to get it back in shape; should be going again soon. Thanks for bearing with us as we grow!

Is this still a problem or is it again a problem? Non of my sources get updated, even after days.
Thanks for looking into this!

Hi guys, we understand your frustration here. Feeds should update quickly and continually. We've had a hard time with this one, with on-again off-again problems. Some feeds are still taking up to a few days to get updated. This is clearly not acceptable to us and we'll keep working hard to make the update continual and reliable. We hope you'll bear with us as we grow, and thanks for using Dipity.
