      I have an odd situation. I changed the feed url and it started to time out. I put an example below. My wordpress site is at I am using curl to sychronize a remote rss feed and serve it back out over ssl. Both example feeds are accessible when requested directly in the address bar, and it gives me the exact same xml file. So both feeds should work the same way. Right?

      This feed url works:

      This feed url does not:

      When using the feed, I get this error “RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: connect() timed out!”. I have tried removing ssl but I get the same results. Also, it slows page load way down and if more than 1 bad feed url is in the widget (separated by commas) then the whole page times out and refuses to load.

      Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thx


      Nevermind. I found the issue. I had to add “” in the /etc/hosts file of my web server. Although it would be good if this error didn’t keep the entire site from loading, if that’s possible.
