    My posts are usually picked up by the aggregator, occasionally with a bit of a delay. The most recent successfully-detected post was 2-25-09. The post from 3-2-09 wasn't detected. I don't think anything changed as far as feeds etc. I triple-checked the citation format -- seemed to be fine, but I re-pasted again to be sure. After about 24 hours (this morning) I tried the "Rescan Blog" option, with no apparent effect. When I used the "import post" option the post was imported fine -- the citation was detected fine, though the post time is given as 12:00.

    If this happens again, is there anything else I should try?

    Ian, it looks like your posts are being picked up fine now -- is the problem persisting? Let us know if you have to use "import" to get your posts aggregated. We think we've fixed the problem with the post time, too. I'll be posting an update on our latest enhancements on the blog soon.

    OK, seems I'm having a similar issue -- I posted something yesterday around 2pm (local time is off on my blog due to a Lifetype bug), and it wasn't picked up by the aggregator. I checked my code, and "view source" in browser gives me:

    <span class="Z3988" title="ctx_ver=Z39.88-2004&rft_val_fmt=info%3Aofi%2Ffmt%3Akev%3Amtx%3Ajournal&rft.jtitle=Proceedings+of+the+National+Academy+of+Sciences&rft_id=info%3Adoi%2F10.1073%2Fpnas.0811664106&rfr_id=info%3Asid%2Fresearchblogging.org&rft.atitle=A+microraptorine+%28Dinosauria-Dromaeosauridae%29+from+the+Late+Cretaceous+of+North+America&rft.issn=0027-8424&rft.date=2009&rft.volume=&rft.issue=&rft.spage=0&rft.epage=0&rft.artnum=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pnas.org%2Fcgi%2Fdoi%2F10.1073%2Fpnas.0811664106&rft.au=Longrich%2C+N.&rft.au=Currie%2C+P.&rfe_dat=bpr3.included=1;bpr3.tags=Biology%2CGeosciences%2CBiogeosciences%2C+Paleontology">Longrich, N., & Currie, P.

    Which seems to be correct. I further tried "Import Post" which did not work. This is the second re-paste of the code generated, and I disabled XHTML conversion on my blog -- so, the code appears to match the generated citation (freshly generated citation follows):

    <span class="Z3988" title="ctx_ver=Z39.88-2004&rft_val_fmt=info%3Aofi%2Ffmt%3Akev%3Amtx%3Ajournal&rft.jtitle=Proceedings+of+the+National+Academy+of+Sciences&rft_id=info%3Adoi%2F10.1073%2Fpnas.0811664106&rfr_id=info%3Asid%2Fresearchblogging.org&rft.atitle=A+microraptorine+%28Dinosauria-Dromaeosauridae%29+from+the+Late+Cretaceous+of+North+America&rft.issn=0027-8424&rft.date=2009&rft.volume=&rft.issue=&rft.spage=0&rft.epage=0&rft.artnum=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pnas.org%2Fcgi%2Fdoi%2F10.1073%2Fpnas.0811664106&rft.au=Longrich%2C+N.&rft.au=Currie%2C+P.&rfe_dat=bpr3.included=1;bpr3.tags=Biology%2CGeosciences%2CBiogeosciences%2C+Paleontology">Longrich, N., & Currie, P.

    I'm going to re-paste it into my blog code -- but even "Import Post" didn't seem to work! Any ideas? The RSS feed ( http://blog.revealedsingularity.net/rss.php?blogId=1&profile=rss20 ) seems to look fine in FF, Opera, and IE, but it still says "no citation found". However, the MD5s of the view-source and the generated citations match:

    Generated Citation MD5: CA8478F3011D64BA5C9618CE4D82BEF2
    Post Citation MD5: CA8478F3011D64BA5C9618CE4D82BEF2

    Ugh. My server appears to be going a bit slow at the moment, though. Any ideas?

    Oops. Commented on the other thread. Again, we'll have our developers look at it.

    Looks like another post from my blog is not being picked up. It's clearly a very sporadic issue, probably 80% of my posts get picked up. I don't see any differences between those that are and are not detected.

    I tried re-scanning, and it says it's re-scanned the blog but doesn't seem to find anything:
    Last Scanned: March 27, 2009 10:01 AM
    Last Updated: March 3, 2009 06:55 AM

    The "last updated" is in spite of actually detecting and aggregating a half-dozen posts since Mar 3.

    I re-generated the citation and re-posted it in -- it seemed identical -- and re-rescanned, still with no luck.

    ... Or maybe I was too impatient. It's been picked up now.
  4.  
    I've figured out the issue -- LifeType corrects the XML and replaces "<" and ">" with "&lt;" and "&gt;", "&" with "&amp;", and so on, in the RSS code. I'm trying to see if I can hack around that, but it is probably an issue the aggregator should recognize; IE, it should search for its code, and the equivalent bit of code with the entities replaced.
  5.  
    Didn't work -- the new url I'm using is http://blog.revealedsingularity.net/rblogging_rss.php , and I compared the citation markup from the field on researchblogging.org to the view-source screen in Opera 10, and both returned an MD5 of 33047E5086AA63E0D71FF59315B06256 .

    The citation in question is:

    <span class="Z3988" title="ctx_ver=Z39.88-2004&rft_val_fmt=info%3Aofi%2Ffmt%3Akev%3Amtx%3Ajournal&rft.jtitle=Astrobiology&rft_id=info%3Adoi%2FarXiv%3A0904.0402v1&rfr_id=info%3Asid%2Fresearchblogging.org&rft.atitle=A+thermodynamic+basis+for+prebiotic+amino+acid+synthesis+and+the+nature+of+the+first+genetic+code&rft.issn=&rft.date=2009&rft.volume=&rft.issue=&rft.spage=&rft.epage=&rft.artnum=http%3A%2F%2Farxiv.org%2Fabs%2F0904.0402v1&rft.au=Paul+G.+Higgs%2C+Ralph+E.+Pudritz&rfe_dat=bpr3.included=1;bpr3.tags=Astronomy%2CBiology%2CAstrophysics%2C+Astrobiology%2C+Biochemistry">Paul G.

    A manual import also returned "No Citation Found". Alas!

    Tigerhawk--

    I've been looking into this. Haven't figured it out yet, but now it looks like your blog is down. Shoot me an email when it's back up and I'll see what I can do.

    admin@researchblogging.org

    Did you enter a comma between author names instead of putting them on a new line? I don't think that should cause the problem, but maybe that's it.

    Tigerhawk,

    The development team took a second look at your citation and can't find the problem.
    Unfortunately the server on your end was down, but when we put the citation on a fake web page and tried scanning it, it came in just fine.

    We'll take another look once your server is up - bug us here about it when you know the RSS is available.

    -vas

    It should be up again -- I'm sorry, I'd had issues with bandwidth. The original RSS is http://blog.revealedsingularity.net/rss.php?blogId=1&profile=rss20 , and a hacked-together RSS that should preserve the citation better is here: http://blog.revealedsingularity.net/rblogging_rss.php
  9.  
    Any luck debugging this issue?

    The aggregator *had* been picking up my posts successfully, but for the last few weeks, it seems to be failing. I haven't let it go indefinitely, but the aggregator seems not to pick anything up for half hour or an hour at least.

    I've resorted to importing each one manually. Once I do that, it is picked up by the aggregator in a matter of minutes.

    Most recent post I imported manually: http://neurodojo.blogspot.com/2009/09/fence-lizards-versus-fire-ants.html I think I waited about

    I'll have more posts scheduled for 9 and 11 September at 7:00 am Central on that blog in case it might help to track the process.

    The latest post today (http://neurodojo.blogspot.com/2009/09/do-bright-bugs-banish-bothersome-bats.html) got picked up by the aggregator, but it took over an hour, I think.

    I'll try being more patient, but is there an expected time frame where these things should be picked up? When should we give up the ghost and import directly?

    zfaulkes,

    Our scanner runs once every hour, so at the worst your post should take no longer than an hour. Possible reasons why it sometimes takes longer: your RSS feed wasn't updated, or our server has difficulty contacting your host. Also, if you are using a service like Feedburner to track your feeds, there may be a delay due to that site.

    Do you know how to manually rescan your blog? You can do that right after your post appears on your site and it should be up on ours within five minutes.

    I use blogspot and feedburner, and sometimes it can take three hours. But it always gets there in the end!

    My recent posts don't get picked up.
    The site seems to scan my blog fine, the feed URL is ok.
    These are the posts:

    Solved the problem. My feed was not ok. Checked with http://feedvalidator.org/ corrected the mistake and the posts got picked up automatically.
    Cheers
