Can't add RSS feed for


I can’t add the RSS feed for… . Newsblur gives the following error when I try to add it: “There was a problem fetching the feed from this URL.”.

Unfortunately, this is the worst kind of failure. It’s not working because it takes > 20 seconds to just parse the XML of the RSS feed. There’s some wonkiness that could be addressed if the original site just gave 10 stories instead of 50. Whatever it is, you can test it out easily by doing the following in Python:

>>> import feedparser
>>> feedparser.parse(‘…’)

Takes way too long, so it just won’t work. :frowning:
