Certain Feed (Explosm) not updated

  • Problem
  • Updated 7 years ago
Like a lot of other people (I guess) I subscribed to the "Cyanide and Happiness" webcomic:
http://feeds.feedburner.com/Explosm

For some reason the last article shown in Newsblur is from January 21, the last two days are missing as well as January 20th. "Instafetching" oder removing and re-adding the site doesn't help. This already happens since a few days.

I noticed the same issue since I joined a few weeks ago. I only got an update once with several days worth of content.

Good news! This is now fixed. Luckily, this feed was a great test case. Thanks for reporting it. It should work form here on out. Let me know fi that isn't the case, especially as I just changed how stories are de-duped.

Not exaggerating, I've had this issue for months, but never could bring myself to post anything about it. I can't see why this RSS feed is special compared to all the other ones I use.

I've been following it now for a week and it looks like it's working. New stories are coming in OK.

Still doesn't work properly for me, there seems to be a "500" timeout:


"Parse this RSS/XML Feed" returns a message "Not modified (304)".
NewsBlur is missing the update for today, yestersday and a lot of other days. Also the sorting is still messed up:


I really hope this get's fixed soon, now that it has almost 3.000 subscribers.

It seems to work today, all missing articles showed up.

Update: Four days later we are again missing articles and have a messed up sorting. I have now almost given up on this.

I too have a pb with Explosm.net (unread counter showing 1 unread, but the list has no item).
I can't update the rss feed of gamekult.com either (http://www.gamekult.com/feeds/actu.html) and PHD comics also says 1 unread, but no item in the list (http://www.phdcomics.com/gradfeed.php)

The Explosm.net feed is still broken with over 3.000 (!) NewsBlur subscribers due to the statistics.

About that : it seems that all the feeds I saw broken are in fact read correctly, BUT the items are not in chronological order.
I don't know if it's the feeds themselves or newsblur, but I think that since it's not "correct", then the "unread" filter does not display the new posts correctly. At least, it seems like it.

For the gamekult feed, there is an item whose date is something in "2016". Maybe that's the cause as well.

Hope that will help;

The Explosm feed seems to have broken again: the last item displayed is 05.19.2013. Google Reader 3 new items since then.

Update: I just deleted that feed and added it again. Now the recent items are showing as new, unread items - but the 05.22.2013 and 05.21.2013 items are dated 16th May?!

The sorting it still weird, but at least the updates seemed to work in the last 3-4 days.
