    Hello,

    RSSOwl is great. Thank you.

    I think I might have found a bug though. I'm using Windows 7 64-bit Pro.

    RSSOwl defaults to update feeds hourly. This worked great until recently when I decided to change the default/global setting to update once a day because most of the feeds I have don't update more than that. I set a few individual feeds to continue to update every hour.

    The feeds that are set to update every hour continue to update every hour, but the ones set to update once a day don't update automatically at all. I need to update them manually. When I look at Properties for the daily feeds, the setting is correct but just doesn't work.

    Instead of setting it to "1 Day", I tried setting it to "24 Hours" which doesn't work either. The setting actually changes to "1 Day" but it still doesn't update.

    Is anyone else able to reproduce this?

    By the way, I was using RSSOwl 2.1.2 when I wrote this and updated to 2.1.4. 2.1.4 installed and restarted but "About RSSOwl" still says I'm using 2.1.2 Build Id: 2011-08-13. When I check for updates, it says "You are already using the latest version of RSSOwl."

    Thanks for your help!

    I confirm that feed update timeouts are buggy.. months ago moved to RSSOwl and now discovered that many feeds updated only once.. and it not even indicate that feed outdated or something :(

    I can not confirm that. For me all feeds do update correctly as far as I can tell – except those that do update neither manually nor automatically…

    Can you please export and attach a log file? http://www.rssowl.org/help#item_5

    Hi, thanks for your replies. Here's a copy of the end of the log. All of the entries throughout the entire log are as short as these and look similar to me. It doesn't look like there's any details about feeds not updating, but perhaps there's some configuration details that may help. I'm not doing anything fancy with RSSOwl such as command line arguments or add-ons; I just installed it and use it like any other application.

    I have redacted the name of the feed that's not loading due to the authentication error because it's location based and I don't want to put it in a public forum. It's not related to the other feeds not updating (which are public feeds and do not require authentication), but if you really want to see the redacted details, I'll send it to you privately.

    Thanks!

    Your log file looks fine except those last 6 lines. Does RSSOwl update this feed if you select that from context menu? Is there any status info in the feeds properties (see tab "status")?

    Does RSSOwl update this feed if you select that from context menu?

    I get a prompt to login when I right-click on the feed and click Update.

    Is there any status info in the feeds properties (see tab "status")?

    "The last attempt to load this feed failed. Reason: Authentication required."

    However, this feed is not the problem. I don't care about this one feed. In fact, I could just delete it. The problem is all of the other feeds that don't update daily.

    How many feeds do you have set to update once a day? Please set a few to update once a day, wait a couple of days, and let us know if they update.

    Thank you very much for your help!

    Ok, I set some of my feeds to update once a day.

    Ok, confirmed: Updating once per day does not work. Try something else etc. updating every 23 hours…
