So I friggin finally tortured myself to learn and install SimplePie on the server.

Everything is fine....except , I can't figure out how to accumulate cache's.

In other words....when SimplePie cache's a feed, it keeps it only as long as you specify for the cache time...and then it overwrites.

So if a certain feed only allows 10 items per cache/hit .....and any newer hits (cache) still only allows 10 items per cache, the older articles will always be overwritten so that only 10 items are displayed every-time.

I have Pagination setup , but I WANT to be able to accumulate the cache. Small example here of the way I have the simple script setup - <snip> (it's currently importing from 3 different energy rss feeds)

But it always cuts off a 76 articles. 1-76 . I WANT it to be 1-10 out of 1000. But I see no way to tell the cache I want it to stop at 1000.

Official simple pie instructions say :

[simplepie.org...]

If the cache has changed, SimplePie dumps the existing cache (since the cache is just a copy of the data object based on the feed), and grabs a new copy of the feed and uses it.


Does this mean I need a modification somewhere to allow it to accumulate and get to 1-10 out of 1000 ?

SimplePie support is NOWHERE to be found anywhere on the internet...so i'm practically willing to pay to get this answered successfully. This goes to the staff here as well if they can answer it.

SimplePie is setup on the server with the latest version, and with no other mods or plugins installed.

I don't have any experience with that package directly, although I was able to get Tiny Tiny RSS [webmasterworld.com] up and running, which I believe uses SimplePie libraries.

I can't find a Demo of that tiny stuff anywhere. not able to find working examples of it either... all the documentation seems to indicate it's mostly just a reader.

Bill, you think i'd need my version to be database driven (mysql) to get what I need done ? To get the articles to store to 1 - 1000 .

Its driving me nuts I can't find ANY support for simplepie anywhere...nowhere. I just want my articles to store from 1 - 1000 .

Really? I found several by searching for Tiny Tiny RSS demo
If you don't have time to install a copy yourself, then I'd say it closet resembles The Old Reader in terms of layout, but I find it much more usable.

Yes, Tiny Tiny RSS is an RSS reader where you host the reader and OPML yourself.

I just want my articles to store from 1 - 1000

If I understand you correctly then almost any RSS reader would do this.

For example, in Tiny Tiny RSS you can set your preferences to purge articles after a certain number of days, or not at all. You can also decide how many articles to display at once. The system paginates them for you.

I'd like that same 'pagination' uploaded to my site though. (1-1000)

So how is SimplePie cutting you off at 76? That seems like an easy variable to search for in the config.

With SimplePie your at the mercy of how many articles the feed owners allow per request... I had about 3 feeds total on that site, each only allowing around 24 articles per feed.... = around 72.

I need a custom mod to simplepie so that it SAVES these articles (in a db or wherever) so it could get to 1000. still trying to find a programmer for the fix.
