One more...syndication

Post by n2ition » Thu Apr 21, 2005 11:14 pm

This may have absolutely nothing to do with s9y...but it's the logical place to start. I have the blog set up for syndication and since I have yahoo as my home page I added the blog to my newsfeeds just to get a feel for how long it takes to show up. Here's my issue. I have yahoo configured to show the last 3 headlins but it is only showing 1. Furthermore it only shows it for a couple of hours at the most then drops it and shows "now new posts in the last minute". Is there something I should be doing on my blog that tells the various syndicators how long to show my current and previous headlines for? All the other blogs that are syndicated on my yahoo page are showing up just find (3 headlines over several days.)

Everything's right on your side.

The Yahoo aggregator seems buggy though. You could ask them if they pay regard to proper Conditional Get caching.

You can try to subscribe to your feed with http://yourblog/rss.php?version=2.0&nocache=true
which effectively bypasses caching on s9y side, so that buggy implementations do not fail.

turn off caching completely?

Hey guys, s9y noob here :)

Is there any way to completely turn off caching in rss.php?

This is for a simple project, with about 10-12 articles that I update as needed.
It seems to work perfectly for a normal installation, caching is gong to be a problem for this one though.

If I can just turn it off, I'm a happy camper :)

Thanks a bunch, Greg

P.S. the reason I'm asking...

I hate to mess up those beautiful .rss URLs w/&nocache=true

If I don't have to? ;)

Thanx again

kept searching & found it @ I think?

If you want to permanently disable that feature (whatever the reasons are) you can either set a "$_REQUEST['nocache'] = true" inside your rss.php file (first line) or append the '&nocache=true' request variable to your feed so that it looks like: ... cache=true.

We'll see if it works now?

love s9 ;)
