I've been trying to get the import news -  content Management / News / Import News - to import the news from a site.  I enter a url, to the news feed,  in the url field, Fiction & Fact From Stan\\'s Almanac, and it returns that my action was successful, but I don't see any of the news imported.  Is this ocp, or the operator?

This particular feed does not provide categories for it's articles, which our code won't import. We will fix this in 4.2.1, out soon.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Gotcha.  I didn't know.  I figured since I could actually pass parameters such as:

when I used a main_rss block That I could do the same on the Import News.
