    I have noticed a long delay between the time when a post goes live, and when it shows up in my blog’s feed:
    http://membracid.wordpress.com/feed/

    So, for example, it’s been about 10 hours since I posted this morning; but the post is still not listed in the RSS feed.

    What gives?

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

    @bug_girl, not a clue. I would contact staff directly and have them look into it.

    I tagged this for staff attention, but contact them anyway since there is no telling when they will wander through the forums.

    I’ve been reporting this for months. My newest post went to Tumblr with a delay of about 12 hours, but the one before that hasn’t shown up at all.

    Just don’t insult the cat mafia. They’ll send your posts to sleep with the fishes, apparently.

    Or the g00g. Don’t insult the g00g. They will make you posts into un-posts that have to forever haunt graveyards at night.

    But the cat mafia is “sensitive.” It’s like if Woody Allen built an army.

    When you publish a new post, could you try going to these links and see if you can find the new post? (replace EXAMPLE with your subdomain)

    http://EXAMPLE.wordpress.com/feed/rss2/
    http://EXAMPLE.wordpress.com/feed/atom/
    http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http://EXAMPLE.wordpress.com/feed/

    I have the same problem as the thread starter. The rss feed does not show my last post yet (uploaded 4 hours ago), the atom feed does. Yesterday it took at least 15 hours to update the rss feed.

    Did you read and act on the advice in the comment Staff made immediately above your own?

    Yes, maybe my comment was not clear enough:
    rss: newest still not listed
    atom: already updated
    validator: valid rss feed

    Would you like to report your details directly to Staff as we Volunteers cannot help with this issue? http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    It’s been 2 hours since you first posted so you may be seeing this too, but I can see your RSS feed updated.

    Please clear your browser cache a couple times or try another browser that you never visited your feed with.

    On the Validator, I actually want you to look at the code and see if you can find the latest title (use your browser’s search feature to find it on the page). This is just a test to make sure you are seeing fresh feed not browser cache.

    Ok, I have the same problem again. The last couple of weeks it worked perfectly but my newest post, written almost 24 hours ago, doesn’t show up neither in my rss feed which I subscribed to with Google Reader nor on the feed validator. The atom feed though works. I will contact the staff on Jan 3rd.

    It’s about 3.5 hours since you’ve posted, but I am seeing your latest post in the feed. Here’s a Google Reader screenshot:

    Could you double-check that you’ve done everything I described above?
    (clearing cache / cookies, checking the validator)

    I checked my rss feed with two browsers, Google Reader and the validator. My latest post didn’t appear until a few hours ago. Now everything is ok. Don’t know why. As I said, the last couple of weeks it worked fine.
