How to troubleshoot why the Website Input app is not generating new events?

Explorer

I've set up the Website Input (web_input) app; it runs once correctly, but not again after that. I've checked each parameter and error logs, but found nothing wrong.

What might cause this behavior? It doesn't seem like this is a problem with the app, but rather its configuration. Where should I look for details?

Thanks!

I reproduced this on my side and it looks like a bug in the app. I'm investigating this in http://lukemurphey.net/issues/987. My plan is to fix this in version 1.0.4.

BTW: I also publish an app specifically designed for obtaining and parsing syndication feeds; that might work nicely for you in this case since you want to parse an RSS feed.

Hi,

It seems like it doesn't retrieve web pages on intervals.

When will 1.0.4 be available?
