Feed Manager bug

I am using the feed manager to aggregate multiple blogs on my mojoportal site. When I click on the aggregate rss link on the feed manager on my home page, I am redirected to a aggregator78rss.aspx page and get an invalid request error. Anyone else hitting this? 

My site is hosted on a godaddy vps running windows server 2008 r2 SP1 with 4GB ram. I have mojo version 2.4.0.3 MSSQL with .net version v4.0.30319 Running in Full Trust with MS SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM. I know, as I'm writing this, I should probably upgrade but I'm thinking this isn't a SQL Server version issue.

Re: Feed Manager bug

I would look for that feed url in Administration > Advanced Tools > Url Manager

make sure it exists there

it is a "friendlyurl" that maps to a real url that should have a pageid and mid (moduleid) in the query string parameters

make sure those parameters are correct for the module id of the feed manager and the pageid for the page that has feed manager on it. for example if you moved the feed manager from one page to another it would have incorrect parameters and it would not work.

try the real url instead of the friendly url and see if you get the same result or not.

Re: Feed Manager bug

Hi, Joe. As always, thanks for your quick reply. I'm not sure why I wasn't notified about your response especially after subscribing to this thread. In any case, I confirmed the link to aggregator78rss.aspx is indeed a friendly url and the real url results in the same Invalid Request error. Some more information: I am using a jquery accordion to wrap my content, namely the feed manager I mentioned and a twitter feed in a separate div tag. I followed the instructions per Joe Davis' article at http://i7media.net/mojoportal-content-features-inside-ui-widget. Not able to figure it out, I created a new Feed Manager content and updated the module ID in my user control. At first it worked, but after tweaking some general settings, it resulted in the same error. I did this two more times trying to find a pattern but couldn't. The last time I created the content, set the settings then added my 4 feeds. All seems to be ok for now. Still not sure what triggers the bad aggregator link. I'll post here again if it happens again or I find a pattern and/or solution.

Re: Feed Manager bug

Ugh. Getting the error again right after I posted my previous message. If you want to see the error, click on the RSS icon on the home page of my site at http://www.qsftinc.com

Re: Feed Manager bug

I figured out why this is happening. Now I need to find a way to fix it. As I mentioned, I added the Feed Manager feature to a JQuery Accordion. Since I don't want the contents of the Feed Manager to display twice on the same page, I remove the feature from the page in question (the home page). Once I do this, the link for the RSS feed for the Feed Manager content is no longer valid because it references the page id in the url ie mysite.com/FeedManager/FeedAggregate.aspx?pageid=45&mid=119. I'm assuming since the feature is no longer on the page, it results in the invalid request error. I tried re-adding the feature to the page but get the same error even after clearing the feed cache on the Add/Edit Feeds page. In any case, if all this is true, would it work if I change the url to use pageid=-1 if the content is no longer published on the page?

Re: Feed Manager bug

I hid the content from both anonymous and authenticated users. Hope this is able to help someone else with the same or similar issue.
