I have a few boards in my smf 2.0 RC1 with PortMx. I use RSS block to pull topics from my forums. I just found that only certain boards are working well with RSS block on the frontpage but couple of other boards displaying with timeout message like "Response timeout error, can't read the feed". I saw them working fine two days ago and I haven't done any major modifications yet. Can you advise me what could be the factor, please?

Thank you.

A small bug, if a feed cached and have one time no response.
Go to edit block and then simple save. That cleared the cache ..

Many are stubborn in relation to the path, a few in relation to the target.

I have the same problem with rss feeds, sometime they work and sometime "Response timeout error, can't read the feed"
Can I execute some file or something more then -edit - save, the rss feed block?

It's a good choice to enable caching in the RSS feed block ..
Timeout occurs, if the server give not respose in (normaly 5 second).
This value you can set bigger in the blocksettings (Feed response timeout)...

caching is on - 7200 sec
timeout was set to 6 sec

I did enable TTL now to se if that loads the page..

if that ".xml" link is used in my browser its loading in no time .. http://store.steampowered.com/feeds/news.xml
is I doing something wrong?

Well .. I have looked at the feed .. it's a very ugly RDF feed .. this is not supported!
Try to find RSS/RSS2/ATOM feeds, they will work ...
