Purge Date not working


#1

Preference:
“Purge articles after this number of days (0 - disables)” is 10, but news older than 10 days are not deleted.
Is it depending on another preference?

Sort of.*

If the articles are still in a feed they will always be found and therefore not be purged. Otherwise TT-RSS would purge them, then find them in the feed (again) and add them back as “new”.

*I’m simplifying the process as TT-RSS also does the whole 304/If-Modified-Since thing and what not.

e: There’s also a constant you can define in config.php that overrides user preferences.

Your old articles are gonna be purge when the update.php runs.

  • items aren’t on feeds
  • items out of date (your condiction)
  • items aren’t marked as star

P/S: purged outdate items won’t decrease your database.
