    We are utiltizing a RadRotator to display data from an RSS feed supplied by Sitefinity 3.7.2.

    We are experiancing a caching issue in FF and IE 8 where the RadRotator appears to be caching the data from the RSS feed source. Manually going to the URL of the feed, I can verify the data is as expected. I've tried clearing browser cache, rebooting the PC, etc...

    Is this a known issue?

    Hi Jon,

    If you are binding the control to a RSS feed, then the rotator data is being retrieved on the server. The browser receives only the result so if the RSS feed is cached, it is not by the browser but by the web server. See our online example, which uses a XmlDataSource to retrieve the RSS from a Sitefinity site. If you have a different solution, try implementing it as shown in the example. If you are already using XmlDataSource, try rebinding the rotator using server code - manually retrieve the RSS using a WebRequest object and force no cache in the request headers.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    Thank for the response.

    I am using a XmlDataSource.

    Thanks to your colleague on the Sitefinity support side, he was able to offer a solution,

    <asp:XmlDataSource ID="XmlDataSource1" XPath="rss/channel/item" EnableCaching="false" runat="server" DataFile="http://localhost:4579/Blank37SP2/en/blogs.rss.ashx">  

    The EnableCaching="false" attribute and value is needed in my siutation.

    Many thanks.
