    Data Feed Not Updating
    I am using one of the free news data feeds that comes with my server. The problem I am encountering however is that the content does not always refresh. Sometimes the only way to update is to repuplish. Sometimes the page updates but the www. page does not. Refreshing the page does not help. This is a cgi script.

    Is there anything that can be done short of republishing several times a day?

    Thanks

    I contacted tech support. They said something about permissions but wouldn't give specifics since this was "web design". (Even though it was their news feed).

    At any rate, would changing group permissions to enable "write" and then a redirect to the index.html page do it? Would either of these actions cause a problem?

    That's strange Cheesehead. Most RSS feeds once they update, your script/RSS reader should just update with the new data. Unless your script is configured to pull out a cached version of the news data first and if there's one there to use that instead of getting the live data from the feed.

    This was just a free cgi script I copied and pasted (that's all they said to do). No permissions were changed. I think permissions did need to be changed somewhere, but I am not exactly where. I ended up getting a free news feed via javascript. I have enough new content (of my own) on this page almost daily for the search engines so I don't really need the generated content. The javascript feed will serve my purpose well.
