'Test Link' works for an RSS feed but not the actual web part RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a user that is trying to set up an XML web part with an RSS feed.  They enter the feed url into the Edit Web Part Panel and click 'test link' and the RSS feed works and shows data.  However, when they return to the actual page the web part does not show any data.

    Has anyone seen anything like this before?

    Lot's of times. The test link function is not 100% accurate.

  • Hi,

    Are you observing any error in ULS logs?

    We had a similar issue like this before where webpart was displaying error while using RSS feeds. We resolved that using AAM.

    I hope this will help you out.
