"Fix a misbehaving site" - feeds working fine but not on newsblur

  • Problem
  • Updated 4 years ago
Hi there.

New premium user here and very pleased with service so far. However, I imported my feeds from google reader and there are several which are not working. I have tried all the options on the "Fix a misbehaving site" panel but they are still not working. I have also checked the URL and the feeds (outside of newsblur) and they are working fine. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Yeah, please reply with any feeds that aren't working. I really just need the RSS feed address and I can check on them for you. Any subset is fine. I'd be happy to tell you why it's not working.

Hi Samuel,

I've got a "misbehaving" feed:
http://www.ranlevi.com/feed/

It takes a while (~10 seconds = 2MB) to download using wget, but the resulting file is valid XML (I've checked it using Python's ElementTree).

Thanks in advance - I love NewsBlur!

Hi there,

Can you help me find a way to get Newsblur to catch this RSS feed please? Thank you

JonDonym Blog: https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/blog/index.php?/feeds/index.rss2

Any author specific site from German news site taz.de, e.g.:
http://taz.de/Ulrike-Herrmann/!a69;rss/

(The main feeds work though: http://taz.de/!p4608;rss/)


Thanks a lot in advance for a fix! :)

Suppose I'll reply to this one, too: I'm having an issue with all Craigslist feeds I'm subscribed to throwing up regular 403 responses. Feeds appear to work fine when I view the links in browser, but not in NewsBlur:
https://boulder.craigslist.org/search/jjj?format=rss
https://boulder.craigslist.org/search/sof?format=rss
https://boulder.craigslist.org/search/tch?format=rss
https://boulder.craigslist.org/search/syp?format=rss
https://boulder.craigslist.org/search/sya?format=rss
https://boulder.craigslist.org/search/vga?hasPic=1&format=rss

Some of these have gone days without a 200 response.

Any news on this? Will Newsblur will get fixed to support the feeds named above?

Craigslist feeds should work again. It's on their end, but it affects every RSS reader. They go down a week or so a year.

Thanks for your reply. I'm sorry, I didn't know these feeds don't validate as Firefox has no problems dealing with them. I contacted the support of the publishers.
