Catching: 20min


what does “Catching: 20min” mean ? Every 20 min, the programm will check if there are new item in the feed ? Even if I do not access my rss during all the day ?

Hi Maxime,

No, Full-Text RSS does not check the feed by itself - we do not even keep a database of feeds users have entered into the form. It only ever requests a feed when you or your RSS reader makes a request. The caching only kicks in then. If a previous request for that feed has been received within the last 20 minutes, the cached copy might be served instead of fetching the original feed again. This is mostly intended for very popular feeds. If lots of people subscribe to those feeds through our hosted service, we do not want to bombard the publisher with requests for the feed over and over again, so the caching helps.
