[solved] SMBC feeds always empty

Hi fellow newsblurrers, Hi Samuel,

I have a problem with the feed for Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. It always appears empty even though it’s often updated. I only remembered today when I saw one of the comics and realized that I haven’t had an entry in newsblur from them in many months.

  • Fetching and parsing the feed in the feed > settings log seems ok.
  • Feed statistics seems to correctly report stories per month

URL: https://www.smbc-comics.com/
FEED: https://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/rss (validates with the w3c validator, although there are warnings)

Any clue?

i read that same comic, with that same rss address, and it’s been working fine. perhaps you accidentally applied some training to the feed that’s hiding stories from you?


Ouch, you were right, I had accidentally done a thumbs-down on the author, so it basically hid everything.

Thank you!
