What happened to the 'The Verge' feed?

The feed seems to be broken. The history is gone, the correct read/unread count has been reset along with the actual read/unread articles, the favicon is gone, the search for older articles isn’t working.

It started about 12 hours ago or so.

It seems to be working well for me. The latest post in my feed is http://www.theverge.com/2015/10/3/9446787/checker-cab-two-new-models-announced published a little bit more than an hour ago, and the history is in tact.

The feed I’m using is http://www.theverge.com/rss/frontpage

Here’s the NewsBlur feed for The Verge: http://www.newsblur.com/site/6106041/the-verge-all-posts

Is this the same one you’re on?

Yes that is the same one I’m on according to the site settings.

RSS/XML URL: http://www.theverge.com/rss/full.xml

It is fetching new articles, but all the articles past 24 hours disappear. It is only happening for The Verge. All my other feeds are fine.

I can confirm too.

Using http://www.newsblur.com/site/6106041/the-verge-all-posts which makes use of http://www.theverge.com/rss/full.xml I see http://www.theverge.com/tldr/2015/10/2/9443491/doom-apple-watch-new-apple-tv-port as the oldest post, published October 2 at 3:59 PM.

If I use https://www.newsblur.com/site/5711950/the-verge-all-posts which makes use of http://www.theverge.com/rss/frontpage instead, there are 329 posts going back to ̄_(ツ)_/ ̄

do you know if http://www.theverge.com/rss/frontpage gets all the same stories as as http://www.theverge.com/rss/full.xml ? If so, I might switch as a temporary solution.

They both get the same stories, but /frontpage is only excerpts. The stories are all cut off after about two paragraphs with a “Continue reading” link to the article on the site.

Thanks for the info :slight_smile: I’ll be switching to that feed until /full.xml is fixed.

You’re welcome! :slight_smile:

The Verge feed is half fixed; still having problems with history past 24 hours. But the favicon is back.

The main Verge feed is broken again… /frontpage version still works.

So they definitely are doing something, but you should have been auto-sub’d to the new feed. It worked fine on my account: http://www.newsblur.com/site/6134393/the-verge-all-posts. I didn’t have to do anything, which should also be true of all subscribers. NewsBlur automatically merges feeds that do this.

That is the same feed as mine, however i lost my history and unread count. Before i had over 110 unread articles, now i only have 5, and my history for the feed doesn’t go past the 31st of October. Not sure if it’s Newsblur or The Verge.  

Yet again, The verge feed seems to be broken. Stories disappeared and the articles only go back a day.

The front page link works http://www.theverge.com/rss/frontpage , but not the above.


There seems to be something wrong with “The Verge” feed. It keeps hanging, sometimes not loading, sometimes giving me the “NEWSBLUR TIMED OUT TRYING TO CONNECT. JUST TRY AGAIN”. All other feeds are working like normal, so I’m sure it’s not my connection.
