Hello

I hope this is the right place to ask.

I upgraded my computer in December 20, and since then I haven't been able to get the RSS feeds to work.

The error in outlook i am receiving is:

Outlook cannot download the RSS content from (my RSS link) because of a problem connecting to the server"

Any idea's what might be causing this, i am at loss Sad

Thank you very muchly.
Cheers

Have you tried pasting your link in to a browser address bar to see if it is pulling back valid xml?

Hiya FaceDancer

Thank you very much for the reply

When i copy and paste a link (used the sample one from the rss page) I receive the following message in firefox:

"This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below."

<rss version="2.0">
<channel>
<title>All Episodes Today</title>
<link>http://www.myepisodes.com/</link>

<url>http://www.myepisodes.com/img/myepisodes_logo.jpg</url>
<title>www.myepisodes.com</title>
<link>http://www.myepisodes.com/</link>

<description>

and so on..........

Hope that was what you are chasing.

Thank you for helping me.

Is outlook indicating an error?
What version of outlook is it, there are so many.

The only idea I have at the moment is that the XML is getting truncated.

Looking at your feed

Code:

https://www.myepisodes.com/rss.php?feed=mylist&uid=JennaTaylor&pwdmd5=d7........ce


ends with

Code:

    <item>
        <guid isPermaLink="false">23936-2-8</guid>
        <title>[ Mythic Quest ][ 02x08 ][ Episode 8 ][ 18-Jun-2021 ]</title>
        <link>https://www.tvmaze.com/episodes/2084548/mythic-quest-2x08-episode-8</link>
        <description><h3>Mythic Quest</h3><table border='0'><tr><td><b>Episode Title:&nbsp;&nbsp;</b></td><td>Episode 8</td></tr><tr><td><b>Episode #</b></td><td>02x08</td></tr><tr><td><b>Air Date:</b></td><td>18-Jun-2021</td></tr><tr><td><b>Air Time:</b></td><td>17:01</td></tr></table><p>Links:<br><a href='http://www.myepisodes.com/show/id-23936'>[Mythic Quest]</a>
      </description>
    </item>
  </channel>
</rss>


seems good.
