Description of problem:
when updating feeds, liferea shows a lot of old news as new/unread.
this does not happen with all feeds i have, but one i see this always is
maybe someone has seen this strange behavior too.
this is with latest rawhide
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
add feed, eg. http://www.heise.de/security/news/news.rdf for testing
update again, they re-appear as new ones
I've tried reproducing this with the feed you've provided, but thus far have
been unable to. Are there any other feeds your experiencing this with?
yes, same here with
http://fedoraproject.org/people/rss10.xml (and rss20 version)
already deleted the .liferea cache, but no go.
says this feed is ok.
tells there are errors.
from the liferea faq:
"Why do feed items keep being displayed as new?
Note that this may also be caused when you switch between different locales.
Liferea currently stores locale specific cache contents. After switching to
another locale the cache contents seems to be updated. This will be fixed with
the next releases."
maybe this has something todo with that i'm in the german timezone?
if the problem persists, it's better to report it upstream i guess.
as more and more feeds went crazy i deinstalled it,
cleaned all traces (.lifera dir plus gconf keys) and reinstalled.
somehow it behaves now ok (!) for me, so i close this report.
