Article Generator requires manual refreshing

posts: 28

It seems I may be missing something out of the documentation in regards to Articles and External feeds. Is there supposed to be a cron job?

I have to manually refresh each feed in order to get new articles. I have the article generator set for 15 minutes but none of them update ever until I click the refresh button on the associated feed.

I am currently running 14.2

Well, quite frankly this is an ugly hack at best IMO and would greatly appreciate a better solution.

I created a custom module

{rss id=1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8 max=0}

Then I assigned it with the following Parameters in order to keep it hidden but allow it to do its job

RSS-Refresh Parameters

Finally I added a cron job to reload my site on a regular basis to keep the feed up to date with or without site traffic in order to update the outgoing RSS
