I've got a feed import set up using the HTTP Fetcher. It creates nodes of a certain type. I need it to import repeatedly so I've got Periodic Import set to As often as possible. I've got Import on Submission and Update existing Nodes checked.

However, the feed imports and creates only 25 nodes on my first manual import. After that it does not create any new nodes either when doing so manually or when the cron run triggers it.

This is a youtube feed pulling videos of a certain publisher and parsing the data with the Feeds youtube module. I also have a field that I am using as Unique.

Any idea what might be going on??

NOTE: There are no error messages in any of the logs.

    check if you arent getting the same videos each time ... (that happned to me last time, cant remember what i did to solve it though :) – mojzis Mar 12 '13 at 20:35
  • If I set it to "Do not update existing nodes" it says "No new nodes created" upon 'importing'. If I set it to 'replace' or 'update' existing nodes, it updates all nodes. Anybody have any idea how this module works? – user1477567 Mar 18 '13 at 22:12
  • i think the problem is in youtube paging / ordering the results. that way you get the same set for each request and you will have to find a way to ask for different videos (hard to tell how to do it without knowing more detail) – mojzis Mar 18 '13 at 23:26
  • @mojzis Hmm yea that makes sense! This is the URL I'm using: gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos?alt=rss&orderby=published&author=cangrejerossanturce Any idea how I can get a youtube feed that isn't paged...? – user1477567 Mar 19 '13 at 0:40
  • I also noticed that the video descriptions are being trimmed, much how they are trimmed in RSS feed pages like this one: gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/… – user1477567 Mar 19 '13 at 1:30

According to the specs, you can set the max-results parameter up to 50. For succeeding searches the start-index can be increased. I guess you will have to do this manually to fill the database for the first time, or you can try to use the Feeds Crawler.
