The MU forums have moved to WordPress.org

wpmu doesn't seem to be expiring rss feeds (20 posts)

    Anyone else noticing that wpmu seems to cache rss feeds it grabs indefinitely? I've seen this with a couple of widgets (last.fm and flickr) as well as the wordpress devblog in the dashboard.

    This is happening on my site too, both in the dashboard feeds, and when bloggers use the rss widget to put a feed in their sidebar.

    Eventually got this. The fix is to enable the cache.
    $ head -2 wp-config.php
    <?php
    define('ENABLE_CACHE', true);

    wordpress has using simplepie to get rss, it's new class for rss feed and it's will automatic reset the rss cache.

    Currently in wordpress only, I think latest wordpressMU will merge this update. I merged it myself.

    One merged and update new rss class, you need add class-simplepie.php, edit wp-includes/rss.php, /widgets.php, wp-admin/index.php also need to update to use new rss feed. Please wait dooncha merge the feature or refer http://trac.wordpress.org

    Yes, I did add the file and updated all other files except for the widgets.php which I don't use. Did the merge according to the trac.

    Still the dashboard feeds aren't updating.

    selad,
    Did you delete "rss_" cache rows from your database as mrball did?

    I second his opinion as a valid "work-around".

    It took a few hours and now the feeds updated.

    dsader - no I didn't. Do you have the delete them for each user? did you do it only once?

    Following my message above I have a different problems with the users feeds. Some users feeds do not work when using:
    http://name.domain.com/feed/
    while for some users it does work.

    Any ideas on this one?

    Yes I deleted all cache in db beginning with "rss_". I used phpmyadmin to search and destroy. First I tried just one blog that didn't work, deleted it's old cache and watched new cache get created in its place. Feeds work, including the Dashboard feeds.

    try
    http://name.domain.com/wp-rss2.php
    or
    http://name.domain.com/index.php?feed=rss2

    I enter the wp-rss2.php occasionally instead of the /feed/ to "burp" a stubborn RSS feed.

    I don't know why it works, it just does.

    I'm havigna similar problem - it's still not expiring my Flickr RSS feeds. It does when I manually go in and delete them, but I can't be doing that everytime users update their Flickr photos.

    Any ideas what I can hunt down?

    I'm having same problem problem with my rss links.
    How do I get simplepie to work. I see on it's not working all the way on the trac site. I'm using rc 4 do I need to upgrade?

    Same problems here. Is there some kind of straight forward way to enable the cache?

    I'm assuming the SimplePie suggestion requires adding code - I attempted installing the SimplePie plugin for WordPress with no luck.
