RSS Feed Block
29 October 2009, 1:00
Hi I am working on RSS Feed block to modify it for our organisation to show custom results.
I came across one thing, when you delete any instance of external feed the table blocktype_externalfeed_data still preserves the data for these feeds. Even if you upadte the feed's url a new record is created in this table instead of modifying current record. Is it normal ?
Hovewer, record from block_instance table is deleted when you delete it or updated when you modify the instance related things This seems okay.
