I use Sidebar (desktopsidebar.com) for receiving and reading RSS feeds.
I've used it for years with no problems.
However, two unexplained problems occurred when I tried adding the two HotUKdeals feeds ( http://www.hotukdeals.com/rss/hot
) to the reader.
1) All updates/refreshes for all of my RSS feeds stopped happening. The only way I can get them to update again after the HotUKdeals feeds have been added is to manually refresh. I have many RSS feeds and never had this problem before.
When I remove the HotUKdeals feeds the other RSS feeds update automatically again.
I have the program set to refresh feeds every five minutes.
2) Only the first of the RSS links is registered when I drag and drop the two links into the program. I have to go into Settings and add the other URL manually for it to be seen. Could this be to do with the fact that both feeds have the same title - "HotUKDeals" ?
So at present I can't keep the HotUKdeals feeds on my RSS reader as it prevents all the other feeds from working.
Does anybody have any experience/suggestions with regards to this?
