#4453 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

Frozen results from RSS widget (wp-includes/rss.php)

Reported by: ymf Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.2
Component: General Keywords: rss.php, rss, widget
Focuses: Cc:


WP 2.2 standard RSS widget (wp-includes/rss.php) won't update results when given the following URL: http://www.medworm.com/rss/userss.php?qu=PEDIATRICS&news=on .

You can reproduce by going to admin panel->presentation->widgets, adding a RSS widget to the side panel, and inputting the above given URL into the widget; leave title empty. Save; go to site. The widget does display a list of articles from that URL. But the list won't update on the next day or even next week.

It's my first time submitting a ticket to the bug tracker, so pardon me if this ticket is not perfect.

  • Milestone set to 2.3 (trunk)

I can't get to the medworm.com link — server not found.

rob1n, try again. The medworm.com link above opens in either of my FF or IE and shows the list of fresh articles.

B.t.w., I upgraded my WP to 2.1.1 and still see the same problem as reported originally.
