    I am a new user for RSS Owl

    after i import feeds by synchronize with google reader, all the feeds can not
    update the content, i means all the feeds are empty, and all the icons have a
    red cross on the lower right corner.

    can you give any suggestion?

    thank you

    another issue may should be mentioned is :

    I have did some test, if i manually add the same feeds, it working.

    but if i import feeds by synchronize with google reader, it is not work as i
    mention in the begging of this post.

    The logfile does not show any problems, so I don't know what is going on…

    Can you please update your Java (Though I don't think this bug is related to a
    Java bug)?

    What can you see on the properties page | "Status" of those feeds not loading?

    Can you access those feeds within a browser ?

    I have updated my java to version java.version=1.7.0_04

    it is still not working

    On the properties page | "Status" of those feeds not loading says:

    "the last attempt to synchronize this feed failed. Reason: Invalid or
    Malformed Feed"

    but if i copy the feed address and manually add it, RSS Owl is working.

    i don't think this way will synchronize with google reader, am i right?

    thank you for your advise

    Seems like Google Reader is behaving strange…

    Are you from China? Maybe Google Reader is blocked for RSSOwl in China…

    I am not using RSSOwl with Google Reader (due to privacy reasons) but since
    none is complaining you seem to be the only one having problems with this
    combination.

    hi genodeftest,

    you are right, i am in China, and i have tried to use proxy in RSS Owl, and
    now it work.

    it is great, and I appreciate your help.

    PS: Is there a way to make some settings for RSS Owl to use https ? because
    when i use https for google reader in IE, firefox, or chrome, there is no such
    problem.

    thank you again :-)

    Yes you can use https like http just like in every common browser. It just
    requires that the server your feed is from supports https.
