  • RSS Feed Manager Not Updating Automatically

    Hi there,

    I have entered in 3 feeds into my RSS Feed Manager and stated that the feeds should be checked every 4 hours.

    However, they're not.

    They do run when I proactively click on

    Run Scheduled Task Now

    Did I miss specifying something?

    Thanks in advance,

    Barbara

    Scheduled Tasks are triggered by code in the footer template, so if you have modified this template or added code to other templates it may interfere with the running of the tasks. Also if there is no activity on your forums, the task won't run.

      Steve please tell me there's a way to work around the "no activity no task run".
      When you're trying to get content in and no one's in the forum it seems silly to me to have the RSS feed go to sleep. I really need to have the RSS feed to automatically get the feeds and post them regardless of whether some one is in the forum. My site is floundering and I really need to automate some functions.

        There is no workaround. That is the only way that vB can trigger scheduled tasks.
