Some feeds aren't working. ... What could be the likely reason?
- I have opened the url with the chrome browser, I got a xml feed.
- I have opened the url with the FeedMoe, I got a HTTP 403 Forbidden error from the web server.
You can see the error, right click the Rainmeter icon at the bottm-right of the desktop > About > Log tab FeedReader.dll: Bang before failure (https://www.hindustantimes.com/rss/opinion/rssfeed.xml) - ... (403) ...
HTTP 403 Forbidden | https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Web/HTTP/Status/403
Edited: I don't investigate yet, what cause this error. (user-Agent? or something else?)
We can't get HindustanTimes' feeds with FeedMoe skin directly. Tech reasons:
- hindustantimes.com is using a Akamai Technologies services.
- In this case, Akamai's server requires client(web brower etc.)'s HTTP request header Accept or User-Agent.
- FeedMoe skin is reading a RSS2.0 feed by plugin FeedReader.dll.
- There aren't any way to modify HTTP request headers in the plugin FeedReader.dll.
Thanks a lot, nek. Cricinfo feed works for me as well now. I was able to make Hindustan Times feed work with FeedMoe too, with https://rss.app/. It's a decent workaround.
Also, I had set MAX_ITEMS to 20, yet it was only fetching 15 items. Apparently it is a limitation with Youtube. xml for youtube playlists shows only 14-15 items at once.

Great work on both skins!
Unfortunately the ticker one comes a bit too late for me: I was using a similar Firefox extension a long time ago before they moved away from the old XUL style extension system, and after that I built my own multiple feed reader (WebParser, no Lua, no plugins; you can check it, if curious, via my signature below). I was recently thinking about adding the ability to order feeds from the most to the least recent one in my similar skin, and I was wondering if your skins (either FeedMoe or OneTicker) support feed sorting by datetime. Or, to be more precise, does the FeedReader plugin that your skins are using support that?
