confused
I've been beating my head against the wall over this RSS thing, and now I admit defeat and need some help. I have the following set;

$_CONF['backend'] = 1; // 1 = activate feeds, 0 = off
$_CONF['rdf_file'] = $_CONF['path_html'] . 'backend/geeklog.rdf';
$_CONF['rdf_limit'] = 100; // number of stories (10) or hours (24h)
$_CONF['rdf_storytext'] = 1;
$_CONF['rdf_language'] = 'en-gb';

In Content Sindication, I have the following set;

Feed Title: Panama Guide
Enabled: (Checked)
Type: Geeklog
Contents: all Stories
Format: Rss
Limit: 100 Entries
Length of entries: 1 = full text
Description: Panama Guide Articles via Rss feed.
Filename: PG
Character Set: UTF-8
Language: en-gb

My problem is the following; RSS "works" but the site only produces ten stories, the same ten stories. I'm checking the output by using an RSS subscription program (RssReader 1.0.88.0) and no matter what I do, I can only get the site to produce the same ten articles via RSS feed.

Help. I am defeated. What do I need to do to make the RSS feed work. I've read everything I can get my hands on, and still can't figure it out. Please, talk to me like I'm stupid...

Good luck on PanamaGuide.

My 2cents...

The RSS feed will only show you the LAST 10 stories posted by date... if you want a new story to come in and push the others down by one, you actually need to add a story.

You must have missed this bit in config.php:
PHP Formatted Code
// | Settings for RSS feeds (aka RDF feeds). Please note that most of these    |
// | are merely default settings for the feeds created from the "Content       |
// | Syndication" entry in the Admin's menu.                                   |
 

So change the number of entries etc. in the "Content Syndication" admin panel.

bye, Dirk
