Problem with links widget

  1. I'm using the links widget in the sidebar of lisacdeluca.wordpress.com. It links to my two wordpress.org blogs and lists several latest posts from those blog. Every once in awhile, instead of listing the posts it says, "We cannot load blog data at this time." Have I done something wrong? Is there a way to fix this? Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is lisacdeluca.wordpress.com.

  2. All data in widgets is cached and takes time to update. No you cannot do anything about it except wait until the data on the RSS feed updates.

  3. P.S. I assume you aren't using the Links widget but instead are using the RSS widget. If not see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/rss-widget/

  4. Thank you for answering, yes, I did make a mistake but I am actually using the Display WordPress Posts Widget. It works just fine more than half of the time. Any thoughts on this widget?

  5. Aha! You are using this widget http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/display-wordpress-posts/

    Any thoughts on this widget?

    No. Sorry.

    What is see here is that the blog has not been updated since Monday, July 01, 2013 2:45 AM and the feed is valid.

  6. Yes, that is the right widget, thanks for the link. When I set up the widget, the URL I entered is a link to the blog, not a "feed" link. Normally it just shows the latest however many posts I have told it to display. Then, every so often, it gives me the can't load message and shows no posts. Hrmph.
