Some feeds don't update on NewsBlur

I’m a premium user.

Some of my feeds never update on NewsBlur. I see them updating on The Old Reader and Feedly, but the are silent on NB.

All the examples I have are Yahoo Pipes feeds. Could you please fix this behavior?

Some of the feeds:……


The first feed you linked just took 2 minutes to load, and the second one shows no items.

So the feeds are kack, not newsblur.

If the feeds are kack could you also please explain why other RSS readers can fetch items from those feeds?

I think it is because you’re using Yahoo Pipes.
Try the direct links to the feeds.
A 5mn search on Google and I found these, not sure they are the one you’re looking for :……

So much for trying to help.

Thanks David and Pascal. You were right, the feeds take too long to load. NewsBlur has a timeout of 20s on feed fetching. Other readers do not. The average feed fetches in under 1s, so 20s is ample amounts of time. If a feed takes too long, whether it’s because it’s a big download or has a long latency, then it is not considered OK by NewsBlur.

Thank you for the explanation Samuel. I have many important feeds that I have hand crafted for my own use using Yahoo Pipes and from your response I understand that you have no plans on expanding the timeout in any foreseeable future. That renders NewsBlur not-useable for me. I already started evaluating other options. Are you willing to refund me?

Of course, just email me.

On second thought, please keep the money. And good luck with NewsBlur. You have a very competitive product and I really hope you keep innovating. So long.
