Comrades . . . I’m trying to aggregate my students’ blogs to my course motherblog via RSS, something I’ve done pretty easily in past semesters/classes. All of the student sites are hosted on Reclaim (cf. blogroll here). However, each time I add the feed url, I keep getting this error no matter what RSS feed plugin I use: “cURL error 28: connect() timed out!” The motherblog is hosted on Bluehost. Help!
PS I’ve tested a handful of the student blog RSS feed urls on W3C feed validation service and they all test out as valid rss feeds - - even though there are some recommendations, such as: This feed is valid, but interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations.
