!Friendica Support

I've been trying to use #Friendica as an #RSS reader since accidentally discovering that it could be used as such. When I compare it to my previous RSS reader, I'm noticing that the entries in my feeds are being listed in an arbitrary and incomplete order. I have no idea why.

What do you mean with "arbitrary and incomplete order"?

Here's an example. I hope I'm linking this properly.

This is a podcast I subscribe to. At present, the most recent post is from two months ago. There have been several new episodes since then.
I'm this particular example the posts appear to be in order, but nothing more recent than two months ago are loading.
That's weird. It's working fine here. Possibly the feed has got issues. In the past I sometimes had got problems when the feed has got some ugly issues. Can you provide the RSS/Atom link? Then I can have a try.

Interestingly enough, it seems not just that one feed. It seems to be all of them.

Edit: I accidentally a word.

I use a LOT of RSS sources for my Friendica and all seem to be working fine. So it is possible to be an RSS-feed related issue.

I suppose that's possible. I've tried running the feed through a validator and it complained quite a bit, but I get similar complaints when I throw the feed that Friendica generates for my profile as well.

The weird thing is that it loads just fine in the standalone RSS reader that I'm looking to replace (Feeder).

So, it seems that a bunch of the podcasts that I follow seem to just be bad at RSS. As a workaround, I'm following them on Nitter instead.

Not ideal, but it works.

Just create a list of these podcasts. Can you create an issue for this as well? I guess that I can then improve the feed import.

Just noticed that you asked me to open an issue as well. I've just done so now.
