Lately I’ve been getting errors with Newsblur where Newsblur CAN proxy the original story, but thinks it can’t and gives up.
Specifically, I get the page to fully show up, and then when the progress bar (“fetching story”) reaches completion, it switches from “Story” to “Text” display mode with the error message “SORRY, THE ORIGINAL STORY COULD NOT BE PROXIED.” (Despite the fact that it perfectly proxied the site and I could read it except it navigated away!)
If I hit Left then Right (switch to “Text” manually" and then back to “Story”) then everything works, but I have to do this for every entry, e.g. if I go to the next comic I have to do it again, and if I go back to the previous comic I have to do it again.
Proof of success:
Error/Auto switch to text:
If I switch to text and then back to Story everything looks good (even after “loading” finishes)
This only happens on some sites. (Some legit can’t be proxied, some legit work perfectly with proxying, but don’t have examples right now)
If it matters, this site is El Goonish Shive
