Quicker Polling for Feeds

December 11, 2014 — Jonathon Rossi

Based on user feedback using time sensitive feeds, the default 60 minute polling wasn't adequate. I've changed the polling to poll quicker if the feed's publisher allows it, otherwise the default 60 minute polling continues. If you'd like to know if a feed is polling quicker than every 60 minutes, the poll interval will be displayed next to the Feed URL on the subscription details page (e.g. 5min poll).

Currently the quicker polling is based on the <ttl> (time to live) field specified in some RSS feeds, like those from the Country Fire Authority (CFA) of Victoria, Australia.
