    Need Some RSS Help

    Hello. I'm not sure if this is possible, but if it is I have no idea how to do it. I did try a search, but the site won't let me search "RSS".

    I was having some problems with my RSS feeds, so instead of going through them all 1 by 1, I just deleted all of the threads. Now that i have it corrected, is there a way to reset the system (not sure what words to use), so that it will grab the feeds again? I'm sorry if this doesn't make any sense. If you need more info, just ask. Thanks.

    You forced me to look at the database just when I was starting to get caught up.

    Try emptying the rsslog table with this query:

      RSS tends to 'rotate' out though (IE: my rss, for example, only shows latest 10 records; so older ones are no longer listed). Which means, if the threads were deleted, and the records are no longer included in the RSS, you will probably lose those posts that you've deleted before... forever (unless, of course, if you manually repost them).
