I'm working on a hub about a local venomous snake, and yesterday added a news feed, with 8 entries. Today there are no entries in my news feed, and so I tried to re add the feed, but no luck. I guess I have4n't paid that much attention to news feeds, a capsule that I do always use, but it's also hard for me to believe that there could have been 8 entries yesterday for the feed, and NONE today. Is there a problem, or is that just how it is at present?
News feed is a dynamic module, it will show what is in the news at the moment. It is not static like the other capsules.
The suggestion from hubpages is for hubbers to remove all news feeds .. so may be you need to read the forums discussion on newsfeeds to decide on your course of action.
I don't think that Hubpages actually advocated the removal of all news feeds, just suggested loosely that news feeds should be accompanied with substantial amounts of text. For example, reducing the number of entries from 8 to 3 or something.
I removed all news feeds, because I don't want to give free traffic to Murdoch and Co and would much rather visitors left via my internal links or Amazon capsules.
Well, I knew that they were supposed to update, but I didn't thinl all entries would disappear over night.
The newsfeed capsule pulls from Yahoo. I can't recall if it was one or two years ago (and can't find the relevant threads now) but admin mentioned that the overall HubPages site can hit their limit on how much can be pulled from Yahoo pretty regularly, which means if you use that capsule, it has a greater chance of going blank versus if you use an RSS capsule and pull a feed from a specific site.
You might experiment with both and see which performs better for the info you need for your Hubs.
Thank you Relache. I just learned something I didn't know. Much appreciated.
I also did not know this Relache. It is good information, thanks!
I went and tacked a side-view newsreel on my google blog just to see what google would do. The google default appears to be four items. No more. No less. Make of it what you will...
Of my few remaining hubs that have news stuff, there is one with five items. Since I have nothing better to do at the moment…

I'm trying to understand RSS feeds. I think the capsule is a reader that aggreates feeds from other websites, but I'm not sure

How can my rss feed to my other hubs disappear. I've looked at half a dozen of my hubs and all the rss links to my other hubs have gone. In some, a strange sex orientated video has appeared. Help!

I think I learned how to put RSS feeds on my hubs today! I was only a person who went online for email, Word, and basic stuff until I came to HP. I feel really, really, stupid, but how can you see or tell without going into EDIT mode if you already put a feed on a particular hub? Not to worry, I...

It would be a nice addition to have the RSS capsule come pre-loaded with our default feed address as an option. I always forget mine and have to navigate to my profile and back to the hub in progress to get the correct address. It would get rid of an inconvenience.Also, it would be nice to have a...
