I have been using the Newsgator Outlook Edition for the past year and was pretty happy with it, but I just realized that it has been discarding posts somewhat arbitrarily.
For example, I had subscribed to the PDC Bloggers feed and hadn’t gotten a new post since the Wednesday of the conference. With all of the feeds I was reading, I didn’t even notice. Several other feeds have been behaving the same way. Newsgator online was working fine, though. Definitely not the feeds, just the reader.
A trip to the Newsgator support site clued me into “Shift-Refresh” as a way to force a refresh of a feed. This didn’t work. A service release (SR2) was released earlier in the month. Upgrading didn’t make a difference.
Uninstalling and then re-installing did work. Now I have (unfortunately) a whole lot of posts marked as unread. It is a good think that Newsgator can sync your feeds from the web site. Handy feature, really.
