Refreshing content - RSS generated problem
Can not get the RSS updates with refreshed content. Trouble needs some help

Hi I made an .XML file and verified for its validation. When I read the feed by FreeReader and also by RSSReader, It displays the message and I hope the XML format it valid.
But I get only the content which posted for the first time and never get the refreshed content even if I try to get the Updated feed. It shows only the old message and no changes appear which I made in the xml file and content.

What is the possible change/correction i need to do, and what could be error now? Any help is appriciated.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, agbenny! I'm no RSS expert, but your issue sounds like a caching setting to me. RSS readers usually cache the content for a preset time period so that they don't have to go back to the feed source every time a visitor requests the page. If you keep seeing the same thing, the parser probably hasn't been triggered to refresh the data. If you control the parser configuration, you can reduce the time between refreshing the cache; if it's someone else's site, you will probably have to wait out the time period for a refresh.
