RSS Feed Trigger not Working

I setup a simple workflow which supposed to be triggered by RSS Trigger, but it does not work unless I manually run it. I set it to active and made sure to set the polling time. do I need to set anything else to make it run based on the poll time that I set?

Information on your n8n setup

  • **n8n version: 1.20.0
  • **Database (default: SQLite):Default on cloud
  • **n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):Default on cloud
  • **Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): Default on cloud
  • **Operating system: Default on cloud

Hi @yoventures, I am sorry you are having trouble. Is there a chance that your feed is publishing new articles only with a delay and backdated timestamps, as appears to be a website scraping service?

If so, this node may not be suitable for your particular use case. This is because the node will compare the timestamp of each feed item with the last polling time. You may instead want to consider using a full RSS reader coming with an API. Unlike n8n, RSS readers maintain a database of all the feed items they encounter, so you can, for example, retrieve all unread items regardless of when they were added to a feed.

I wrote about this a while back over here, perhaps you find this thread helpful.
