force an RSS refresh?
Authored by: Kimhill on May 06, '05 04:14:39AM

It would be really useful if you could just force an RSS refresh in Safari.

This would get around the issue of permanently refreshing too often, but would allow you to be sure that you had the latest data when you really needed it.

Here here! I have an RSS feed of my most recently played iTunes tracks, but Safari WILL NOT recognize any changes during very long periods of time--like a day or so! I have no trouble with other RSS readers in this regard, which recognize new pubDates as soon as the feed goes up (manually refreshing, of course).

Kludgy, but seems to work...

go to preferences, RSS tab, hit "Remove Now" and confirm, then when you load the feed, it should refresh.

I just turn off the autoupdate and manually refresh that way
