Newsblur can't parse RSS from this site


I’m having problems with Newsblur parsing this particular RSS feed:

It looks good in Firefox, but there is no content shown in newsblur. Any suggestions what might be going on?

When you check the feed on the w3c validator
You get:
“Feeds should not be served with the “text/html” media type [help]”

I would ask the feed provider to change the media type.

Thank you for bringing this feed up, Mark! You were absolutely correct, NewsBlur should have been able to handle it. Turns out the feed has all of its stories published all at the same time. Normally that wouldn’t be an issue, but because this was a new feed that was never read, it was being trimmed aggressively, and because the date matched ups, all stories were trimmed every time.

I added some logic to handle this case and now the feed should be OK. Thanks again for taking the time to write this up.

Wow, that was fast and efficient - NewBlur had already synced the feed when I just checked and I hadn’t noticed! Thanks for fixing this! Mark
