I have the following feeds exposed on my blog:
I’ve made several adjustments to them, and I noticed that there’s no way to update the items I’m getting in Newsblur. To make it clear — this is about refreshing older, already cached items.
The behaviour was strange, because feed #1 got refreshed last night only once, and then stopped refreshing, whereas feed #2 never did. I tried to force refresh it (via Insta-fetch, or by going into their Preferences and triggering “fetch feed”).
The other problem is that I’ve made small adjustments to older files, which ended up updating their
atom:modified timestamp in the RSS feed — in feed #1, the one that was refreshed once, those feeds appeared as if they were new, published yesterday, with no link for viewing what changed. This got reflected in the feed’s sorted order too. They were detected somehow as new articles, even if their
guid and their
pubDate did not change. Whereas in feed #2 they were never detected as being changed, or updated for that matter, so the behaviour was inconsistent.
- How can I invalidate Newsblur’s cache, such that I can ensure that other users get the right content (whenever I make adjustments to my feeds)?
- How does Newsblur detect new/unread articles?
