    Number of entries for RSS reports

    Asked by dgkg on January 19, 2014 at 12:32 PM

    Hi,

    I read this topic: http://www.jotform.com/answers/95218-how-can-I-make-the-rss-feed-report-show-more-than-10-entries-How-can-I-make-it-show-all-entries

    We use RSS raport for our guestbook, but what if there are more then 10 entries? Does that mean that I cannot show more than 10 guestbook entries, or am I mistaken?

    JotForm www all then

    Hello dgkg,

    The "RSS Listing" report will only display up to 20 submission records. These 20 submissions will be 20 most recent submission records. The older submission records will still be in your JotForm account but your RSS listing will only display the latest 20 records.

    Thank you!

    Ok, the data is still there, but cannot be called up on bij a reader like we have now. So this means that I would be better of sending the submissions to a database rather then to rss. Shame, RSS was so much easier.

    Hello dgkg,

    That is correct, our RSS listing report is not designed to display more than 20 submissions.

    Which reader you are currently using? Is it not able to pull any submissions from your RSS report? 

    Do let us know and we will take a look.

    Thank you!

    I downloaded this reader from Scriptool.com: http://www.scriptol.com/rss/rss-reader.php

    Below the code I have in the page:
    require_once("rss/rsslib.php");
    $url = "http://dutch.jotform.com/rss/40184571513046";
    echo RSS_Display($url, 15, false, true);

    Works OK but the styling could be better tho. You can find it working here: http://degrieksekookgek.nl/versie2/gastenboek.php (sorry only Dutch).

    @dgkg

    Your RSS report URL is not found http://dutch.jotform.com/rss/40184571513046? This might be the reason why it's not showing any data on your page. Please make sure to correct the RSS URL by creating a new RSS report on your form.

    I have also tested it with one of my form and currently, it shows up to 30 submissions on the RSS report. http://www.jotform.com/rss/40193556116048

    Let us know if we can be of further assistance.

    Regards!

    @dgkg for some reason the RSS Report http://dutch.jotform.com/rss/40184571513046 is also not working. Did you delete it somehow? I am seeing this error and not found like my colleague mentioned:

     

    It seems that I can not locate it any RSS report from your account. Please do get back to us so that we can assist you immediately. Thank you

    Indeed,I deleted this one because I updated the form, a new feed can be seen here: http://www.jotform.com/rss/40193519927057 less entries because the test entries are deleted.

    @dgkg,

    That link seems to be working now if you and I've tried it myself and it does shows 30 submissions. If there's anything else that we could help you with let us know.
