Old RSS Feeds

Topics: Developer Forum
Sep 18, 2008 at 5:23 PM

I am using the RSS Toolkit for several RSS Feeds, for e.g. -
http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_topstories.rss


If I use the link above I see stories from today, but if I use this link with the RSS Toolkit, I see stories from Sept 2.

 

I also tested the RSS Feed with an XMLTextReader and I get old data there as well, so It’s not really an RSS Toolkit problem, but I’m hoping someone here has a solution?

 

RssDataSource is -

<cc3:RssDataSource ID="RssDataSource1" runat="server" Url="http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_topstories.rss">

XML Reader –

        XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader("http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_topstories.rss");

        while (reader.Read())

        {

            Response.Write(reader.Value);

        }

 

This particular feed has been working for the last year or so and just started showing old stories.

We have some other feeds that seem to always have a few old stories, and some RSS feeds that work great.

Does anyone knows a solution?
