I am trying to import the BBC persian feed from http://www.bbc.co.uk/persian/index.xml using the Aggregator module in Drupal 7. For some reason, I always get the same link for the article for all the imported items. I have tried with other RSS feeds form BBC.co.uk; only the Persian one is not properly imported.

Is this a know issue? Is there a workaround? I presume it is a problem with the RSS parser in the module, and the Persian numerals, but I can't be sure.

After you add new feed, make sure you update the items twice after removing them in the first time.

steps as follow:

  • add new feed
  • go to feed aggregator page admin/config/services/aggregator
  • update items manually by clicking on update items for the added feed
  • remove items by clicking on remove items for the updated feed
  • then update feed again update items

these steps worked for me while importing BBC persian and arabic feeds
