"Social Feeds" RSS Reader problems

[ Edited ]

First of all: Hello BlackBerry Community. Smiley Very Happy


Now to my problem (I hope you an understand it, my englich is not perfect)


I've written a rss feed for my homepage. The BB Social Feed didn't update the feeds / can't find any feeds. Other RSS-Readers can display th feeds without problems.

My Social Feed can also read all other feeds I've tryed, only with my own feed I have this problems.


If I open the rss feed in the BlackBerry Browser, everything is displayed correctly...


The feed is: http://www.arax.de/rss.xml


This rss feed is checked and validatet by w3c Feed Validation Service (http://validator.w3.org/appc/) and there is no error found.


Have anyone any idea what's going wrong?


Thank you very much for your support.





when I try to add feeds in Social Feeds like Add new Feed -> "http://www.arax.de/rss.xml" he finds the feed but displays no content. If I ad it like "www.arax.de" he finds the feed, and displays old stuff (until june).

Because of this, I copied "rss.xml" into the "news" directory and loaded it up in my webspace (now the rss.xml-file is twice on the server, 1. in www.arax.de/rss.xml and in www.arax.de/news/rss.xml

Then I changed in the header of "index.htm" the rss link in <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml"
 title="RSS Feed" href="http://www.arax.de/news/rss.xml">

If I open now the Social Feed and search feeds in "www.arax.de" it finds the feed and display it correctly. (it also works if you search "www.arax.de/index.htm"


So I added another file in my webspace, its called "test.htm" and it's the same file like index.htm but in the header I have

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml"  title="RSS Feed" href="http://www.arax.de/rss.xml">

When I search "www.arax.de/test.htm" Social Feeds find the feed, I can ad it but the content, who is displayd is the old content of a file, that didn't exist any more.
