    I'm having issues with the RSS feed and scheduled news items.  Sometimes the RSS feed recieves a post *well after* the scheduled time and sometimes it recieves the post *before* the scheduled time.  In both cases, the News View control acts as expected.

    Has anyone encountered this before?  It doesn't appear to be caching, at least at browser level.  Anyone have any ideas?

    Hi JAllen,

    In the RssProvider we apply a filter which has the following rule

    publicationFieldName is less or equal than DateTime.Now
    expirationFieldName is Greather than now.

    The filter applies when the provider is initialized which happens when someone makes a request to the rss page you have

    You can try the following

    Create a new item and check if it is shown in the feed. If not try restarting the web server. If you fetch some data from one location to another( or  there are difference in the data format set for the database server) make sure that there is not an issue with the publication and expiration date of the item. Also the news item should be Published.

    It is quite strange that you see the item in the NewsView control, but not in the Rss. We use GetContent method and one of its overloads to get the content data, so there should not be a difference.

    Best wishes,
