You are right.. and wrong!
Authored by: Spiken on May 05, '05 11:18:11AM

If I keep the update intervall at 30 minutes, I miss a lot, since many of my feeds only keep the 15 newest enterys in their rss-feed and there could be like 40-50 news in that timespan.
But of course, I don't want to make the servers go wild and overheat :) So, maybee a good, free newsreader that could set individual refresh times on all the feeds' something to look after. Any suggestions?

(The best would be if Safari would allow you to set the refresh times different for each feed).

This is the best idea. Send a postcard to 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino. ;-)

Would've done it if I lived in the states :)

What about increasing the number of entries visible?
Authored by: Dave1439 on Mar 31, '11 09:55:41AM

I have a similar problem in a feed I need regular access to - too many entries come through in between refreshes. Actually... it's not that simple. The people producing the feed may only update it a couple of times a day, but when they do, then in the 30 minutes between refreshes there might come through 30-40 new entries, while only 20 are caught by Safari or Mail.

To be clearer... When I view the feed in Safari, I only get the last 20 entries. If I view it in Mail for the first time, I also only get the last 20 entries. Is this a feature of the feed? or of Safari and Mail? Is there a way to increase that number?

At least if I subscribe to the feed in Mail and set the refresh rate to frequently enough then I don't miss any entries (Mail keeps old entries for as long as I ask it to), however, as noted above, this may put an undue load on the server. A better solution would be to just increase the number of entries available... surely?

Also, if I've just subscribed to a feed in Mail and only get the last 20 entries, are previous entries gone from the feed, or is there some way to access them?

Sorry if my ignorance on this topic is blatantly obvious.
