Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2009 3:02 PM (in response to Josue.Alvarez)Hi Josue,
Yes, I am also experiencing this issue. Glad it wasn't just me... that is to say, that it's a glitch and not something I broke on my end.
Let's hope Apple fixes it soon.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2009 4:36 PM (in response to Dieds)Hey there. It appears that as of about 4:23 PM (west coast) Apple has fixed the problem. The RSS widget started working again after the last re-load of my web page.
I hope yours starts working as well.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2009 4:54 PM (in response to Josue.Alvarez)Hi again,
4:42 p.m. Pacific time and it's still not working for me. I'll give it a little longer and update if resolved. If unresolved I'll ping Apple support tomorrow and then update here.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 15, 2009 5:02 PM (in response to Josue.Alvarez)Did you find a solution to the rss feed issue? My iweb entries at
were updating in RSS using mail. now the latest entry 9/18 is not showing in mail.
Why is this?Imac, Mac OS X (10.5.3)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 15, 2009 5:11 PM (in response to Cat Hair)No resolution for me yet. The iWeb RSS was working in mail but stopped working a few days ago so I removed it. I gave up on adding the RSS feeds for my iWeb entries. I use it for other feeds though with no problem. Never heard back from Apple.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 8, 2010 8:44 AM (in response to Josue.Alvarez)This is still an on-going issue with iWeb and Apple. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Search online for other options.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 10, 2010 2:26 PM (in response to Dieds)I've been working with this RSS widget for the past few days and have noticed that it is very sensitive to malformed RSS. Even when Safari's RSS reader would render it correctly, the iWeb RSS widget was hosed. This RSS validator site was priceless: http://beta.feedvalidator.org/. For the most part, once you fix all the errors it identifies, the RSS feed works like a charm in iWeb. (see now-working RSS widget on my site: http://tinyurl.com/ygl8zt9)
I said "for the most part" because I am now having an issue. Even though a new feed that I'd like to add is valid RSS syntax, iWeb isn't rendering it in the RSS widget. I think the issue is that I have <[!CDATA[ some link ]]> tags in my RSS file. If I remove these and the links that need to be enclosed in them, then it works fine in iWeb. But, what's the point if the links aren't active? If anyone is experiencing this and knows how to get around it, please let me know. (RSS feed that doesn't work: http://idisk.mac.com/stacybranham-Public/what.xml)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 10, 2010 2:44 PM (in response to sbranham)update: I tried replacing the special characters in my <link>s with the escape characters (e.g. &) and took out the <[!CDATA[ ... ]]> tags, but that didn't work either. Argh!
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 8:21 PM (in response to sbranham)Having issues with my RSS feed in IWEB and IWEB created site... just noticed it today. Was working fine this morning.

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 3:51 AM (in response to BobbyShaw)If I understand correctly the RSS-widget uses mac.com for some of it's "magic"? My RSS-feed is also stuck "loading" this morning. It seems that Apple has some problems with it's server that the RSS-widget uses to display the feeds. I hope Apple fix this soon.

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 5:58 AM (in response to Josue.Alvarez)I suggest that everyone report the bug via the Safari "Report Bug to Apple..." selection under the Safari menu. Support does not always check the support discussions, so unless everyone here is calling in, Support may not know about this issue. Include screenshots and page code in your Safari Bug Report.
BTW: I'm having the same problem at http://macroads.com. Feeds worked fine yesterday into the evening but did not finish loading today.2-24" iMacs, 2-Aluminum 13" MacBook/MB Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2), All the latest updates installed
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 7:15 AM (in response to Chris Hayden)Same crazy problem here.
I just launched my new web site www.lighthousemission.net & the rss feed is a big deal and it stopped working. Will it ever start up again? who knows. I contacted apple tech support & they reffered me to the discussion board... Oh well, I don't know what to do now.... I'll just keep praying. Bless you guys!mac Book pro 13", Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 7:50 AM (in response to Chris Hayden)Thanks chris... I posted your suggestion on the unanswered thread that I started. I reported the bug.
Lets see how long it takes before we can get on apple's radar screen!

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 8:07 AM (in response to Pastor Jim)And again, I suggest that everyone report the bug via the Safari "Report Bug to Apple..." selection under the Safari menu.
Pastor: Tech Support does not code the interoperability between say iWeb 09 and Safari, or iWeb 09 and internet browsers. IWeb's issue is probably a bug in their code. Tech Support can only guide you through 'user error' issues, or workarounds within user accessible software and hardware.
Since this issue is more global; i.e. everyone's site was working one day and then not the next, it is a coding or server side (how the code is executed) problem.
NOTE: the "Report Bug to Apple..." selection under the Safari menu DOES NOT SAY: "... Safari Bug ...". I predict that if enough "Report ..." via the Safari menu, Apple's software people will start talking to each other and resolve their interoperability issue between iWeb and internet browsers (Safari).
Calling Tech Support is only going to get someone who will work through a troubleshooting script. If the troubleshooting documentation they have doesn't cover interoperability between the web development software and the internet browsers, then everybody is stuck until someone dares to report it as a bug. When Apple's other programs get a bug reporting feature directly, I'll be happy to utilize that feature, but until then Safari's Reporting link allows you to send both a screenshot and the web page code so that someone on the coding side of things can see that this needs a fix.
