      Description

      After upgrading to the latest cvs earlier tonight, I found that for ordinary users, any RSS feed block was now invisible and that for admins they could see the block but only had Add/Edit feeds avalable.

      Editing the feed showed that it was setup correctly.

      This can be resolved by downgrading magpie to an earlier version - I only had 1.5.4 availble, but it works

        hmmm nothing new here http://moodle.cvs.sourceforge.net/moodle/moodle/lib/magpie/

        ...it's out to Skodak on the wing for a quick look!

        No downgrade, sorry - we will have to find the actual problem and fix it. Working on it...

        I have tested it on several linux based servers and it works for me with different RSS 1.0, 2.0 and Atom feeds. Using both various PHP 5.1.x and 4.4.x versions on different distributions.

        What is you server configuration? Could you send me output of admin/phpinfo.php by email? thanks

        I think the problem might be in snoopy not magpie itself. Before 1.6 magpie used medieval snoopy version from its exlib directory. It now uses latest version from lib/snoopy/ directory.

        I can not fix it if I can not reproduce it on my test servers

        Could you enable debug mode on your server and send me login/password or at least any error messages from web pages and server logs?

        UNfortunatley there are no error messages generated in any of the logs on the server itself, I looked in the web server logs and all the system logs.

        My site is currently working with the older version of Magpie and I can't really afford to 'break' it on purpose for any length of time during the school week.

        Can we organise a time on the next weekend, so that I can advise users that those features will not be working for a while?
