Getting "Failed to load RSS feed for the specified URL" with RSSDateSource

Dec 16, 2007 at 8:22 PM
Hello,

I've just started using this toolkit but I'm finding the RSSDataSource is no accepting a lot of the feeds I provide.

For example the Slashdot feed (feed://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdot), Digg, Yahoo, etc. all return the error "Failed to load RSS feed for the specified URL"

Some will work like the Fark feed buy many give this error.

I am simply adding the RSSDataSource to a DataList and using the "Configure datasource" option to enter the feeds when it throws this error.

Can anyone point me in the right direction or is there documentation that addresses these types of issues?

Thanks a bunch,
McFrosty
