  • RSS feed issue

    I've had a strange issue that cropped up out of the blue on Thursday evening ET. I use RSS to pull in the various news items from my wordpress site which has, naturally, worked without issue for many years. But on Thursday, one article started being reposted into the forum multiple times:

    https://fandompost.vbulletin.net/for...eases-and-more

    If I take that article off my wordpress site (unpublish), it then grabs a different article - a review posted an hour earlier - and starts repeat posting that via RSS. Nix that and it grabs something from 8 hours earlier.

    I tried reposting those articles at different times and it defaults to grabbing the God Eater article. It's not doing repetition with any other article unless I remove that one.

    I am, quite frankly, at a loss.

    The system tries to determine the articles already posted by the time stamp on the article. If this is incorrect then there can be multiple postings. What is the link of the WordPress site's RSS?

        This redirects to - https://www.fandompost.com/rss-%20ht.../TheFandomPost

        I end up with:
        Code:
        Page not found!
        Sorry the page you were looking is not here.
        Where there any changes to the WordPress site lately? Updates to the WordPress software or its plugins?

        The "alternate" link looks incorrect when viewing the WordPress page source as well. The HREF isn't a proper URL. It links to:
        Code:
         	<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="rss- http://feeds.feedburner.com/TheFandomPost" />

          No changes to anything - and it's working in pulling in the feeds this way since forever. I just have this sudden weirdness.

            Interestingly, after doing this since Thursday, it's now leaped onto a different article to repeat post.

              I apologize, I had grabbed the site RSS and not what I had in vbulletin that's pulling to that individual forum. That feed is:

                Any suggestions? The RSS feed looks fine and it keeps jumping to different articles as more get posted. I don't see any rhyme or reason fo which ones it grabs and repeats.

                  So, I deleted the original feed import that I had after trying a reset on it to no effect. I added it in fresh - doing a preview that again shows no duplicates - but vbulletin cloud keeps doing repetitive postings every few hours.

                    And in looking at some of the other feeds, it turns out that they all say "last checked" on 7/18

                    They are seemingly pulling into their respective forums on a regular basis, but it looks like some days may be missed.

                    But then again, I've been posting about this for a few weeks with no responses.

                      Delete the problematic feed.
                      Re-add it.

                        I put in a formal support ticket for it. I did that and it's still not functioning properly. There's some other issue at play as the other RSS feeds are working but aren't updating last checked dates (7/18 was the last check?) but are still pulling articles into the proper forums.

                          When I deleted the main news feed, it ended up just running the duplicates with a different feed:

                            Does the issue happen if the article isn't in multiple RSS feeds? You're pulling a number of RSS feeds from your main site. You have your articles in multiple copies of these feeds. The RSS system isn't smart enough to know that it is pulling in the same article from multiple feeds. You can also try posting them with a non-administrator user so the system's anti-spam system would kick in and check against duplicate posts.

                            I should add that I am using multiple feeds on this site here: https://forums.rabidbadger.io/forum/...nd-information

                            It is a cloud site and I can't recreate your issue.
