My feed not updating anymore

 4:43 pm on Aug 12, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hi, I have been using "feed43" to make RSS feeds out of a few web site pages that I own. I then use "RSS include" to display the feeds on one of my websites. This worked fine for a few months but one day I noticed my feeds were not updating anymore.

If I go to the feed URL in my browser I can see new results and then the feed will update on my site. This sort of defeats the point however if I have to go update it manually everytime.

Any Ideas?

Anyone at all, I really need these feeds to update. I dont think its on feed43 side because the feed is updating if I look at the feed URL in my browser. For some reason this also makes it update in my feed reader but only when I visit the feed URL. What would cause this?

I guess there aren't many people here with experience with that particular service. Are you receiving any errors? Do the pages validate? Do the feeds validate?

I ran my feed through a feed validator and they seem to be ok. Says they validate. Only problem it noted was this

Your feed appears to be encoded as "utf-8", but your server is reporting "US-ASCII" [help]

line 98, column 2: Missing atom:link with rel="self"

Im not sure if this is any help?

Thanks for your response, let me know what you think/

That doesn't sound like a game stopper error. However it's hard to tell with a service I've never used. Does the page validate?
