problems with RssMate / Angus Johnson

Post by Peter2 » Tue Aug 25, 2009 9:14 am

I downloaded RssMate from
http://www.angusj.com/rssmate/

made by Angus Johnson, the author of the famous "Resourcehacker"
http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/

Now I have problems with RssMate - I can get no RSS-channnel, neither his examples nor other feeds.

My problem is that there is no contact and no forum on the website.

Is there anybody out who knows a contact or a forum or can help with RssMate?

Of all the readers I've tested so far, GreatNews is the only one able to “digest” rss.php without problems.

So you mean it is a problem of the feed and not a problem of the software? But also a feed which is listed on Angus' website was not accepted by RssMate ...

On Feed Validator's results page you can see what's causing decoding errors with less fault-tolerant readers.

It seem to be a problem of the system configuration in my company (Firewall? Proxy? ???).
Now at home it works fine with all stuff ...

Edit:
Yes, it is a problem of Proxy and opened ports ....

Turns out that RSSMate is the kind of reader I was looking for. Thanks, Peter :D
