SimplePie 1.3.1 is now available. Upgrade now!

SimplePie Documentation.  Learn how to use this thing.  It's way better than going to school.

You are here: Documentation » API Reference » SimplePie » set_max_checked_feeds()



class SimplePie {
	set_max_checked_feeds ( [int $max = 10] )

This tells SimplePie's ultra-liberal feed locator how many URLs to check for feeds. If a site is obviously feed-enabled, and SimplePie isn't picking up the feed, you can try increasing this value. On the other hand, keeping this value lower prevents things like a runaway script when it encounters a 404 page with a hundred non-feed links on it.

Works with autodiscovery along with set_autodiscovery_level() and set_autodiscovery_cache_duration().


  • Available since SimplePie 1.0.
