Hi, my problem is with the following site:
http://adlibitum.hu/rss One time I have managed to
fetch the news, but now it says "Circular redirect to
http://adlibitum.hu:80/rss" but the find out
more link (which is http://www.feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fa
dlibitum.hu%2Frss ) says that it is a valid feed. So I've lost. What is the
solution for this. BTW, I use Version: 2.1.2 Build Id: 2011-08-13 (in windows
2008R2), if that is relevant.
I've also encountered this. The feed url is
it also validates as correct. I've found that it sometimes works (once only)
if I remove the :80 from the address, but then it reappears the next time I
load RSSOwl, and the error returns.
Sorry, I can't reproduce this. Both feeds (
http://clientsfromhell.net/rss ) are working
fine for me. can you please export your log file (
http://www.rssowl.org/help#item_5 ) and
post the last section here?
Ok, I was wrong. You are right, this can be reproduced.
The strange thing is: Even after restarting RSSOwl multiple times after adding
the feed I had no problems. But after hibernating my Operating System it
didn't work any more.
Here y'go. As for myself, I don't hibernate, so there must be another common

RSSOwl.org seems to use a old (unsupported/obsolete?) namespace (ironic?)
confirmed. Don't know why, I'll keep investigating ;)
Your RSS URL is incorrect. The correct one is http://stackoverflow.com/feeds/tag/java ("tag" instead of "tagged"). Seems like stackoverflow changed their URLs.
Works fine for me.
This page does not provide a RSS, Atom or RDF feed.
Yeah, most of the feeds haven't been checked since I imported them, and are
quite old. The stackoverflow feed is wrong, but the right link (which has a
pile of tags appended to it) 404's.
I am also still having the “Circular redirect” problem in RSSOwl 2.1.4.
If I manually check what happens when a problematic feed is retrieved (like http://13thwitness.com/rss), they first reply with a “HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily” that points to for instance /rss?ef7ddf30.
Then, if I retrieve http://13thwitness.com/rss?ef7ddf30 I get another 302 redirect back to the original /rss. Retrieving this will now provide the actual content.
No idea why they're doing this, I suppose to thwart crawlers or something. Anyhow, it seems the test for the circular redirect decides too early that there is a loop. It should try a little longer.
I also have this problem too. Please help me!
My feed link is https://www.odesk.com/jobs/rss?sortBy=s_ctime%2Bdesc. When go to "Find out more" in Status Properties of this feed http://www.feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.odesk.com%2Fjobs%2Frss%3FsortBy%3Ds_ctime%252Bdesc, it said "This is a valid RSS feed." But it can't download any news. My relevant info: I use RSSOwl Version: 2.1.4
Build Id: 2012-07-28 (Windows 7 and MAC). All my OS platforms I used have the same error.
I really like this RSS Feeder! I really appreciate your help.
