MetaTalk RSS feed showing MeFi posts April 25, 2008 4:31 PM   Subscribe

The MetaTalk RSS feed is showing MeFi front page posts. I'm using NewsGator, and this has only happened (last I checked) within the past 24 hours. Does anyone else have this problem?

It's not happening for me in Google Reader.

Everything is working with the MetaTalk RSS feed on this end. You might double-check the URL: MetaTalk RSS, and it couldn't hurt to try unsubscribing/resubscribing to see if that clears it up.

I just checked with Newsgator and it's not doing it for me. What specific Mefi post is appearing in the Metatalk RSS feed?

Brandon Blatcher: It's just doubling up every MeFi post posted in the past 24 hours (or when I last checked Newsgator). I'll try resubscribing.

ah, the feed's correct again! Resubscribing helped. (Wonder what happened though.)

If memory serves, when the server was down last Friday, a few people (including me) reported seeing MeTa's feed showing MeFi stories. And I seem to remember someone commenting that that the feed had been accidentally been giving out a "permanent redirect" code during the glitch. I wouldn't be surprised if NewsGator's caching plus the above-described weirdness was what caused it.

I had this same problem, also with NewsGator (NetNewsWire). It's not just the MeTa feed either; I had the problem with all of them. I'm pretty sure I resubscribed to all of them when this first happened just after the massage last weekend, and just now I resubscribed (I think a second time, but not sure) to the MeTa feed.

As I was writing the comment above, my MeTa feed just got confused again and started replicating the MeFi feed. So resubscribing is apparently only a temporary fix.

I'm struggling with Newsgator/NetNewsWire/iphone integration. I went to the newsgator forums; and left a message to support. A bunch of my feeds aren't updating..and it's something wrong (I think) with newsgator. I just sent off my subscriptions.plist to see if it clears things up.
