I subscribed the feed for the tag 'ruby'.

This works fine, if I refresh in short time intervals. If there is a bigger time interval (approx 4-5 hours) there are more then 30 questions, but the feed contains only 30 new questions.

Is there a possibility to get more? I would like read all new questions.

Or in other words: The feed has a limit of 30 items - is there a way to increase it?

    Perhaps you could use an RSS client that stores all the new entries? Mar 18, 2012 at 21:28
  • Would be a possibility. I had a similar problem in the past on another website. I added a &items=100 in the feed-url and I got the result. I just hope there is a similar option at stackoverflow.

Using Stack2RSS, you can use the following feed URL to accomplish this:


Note the inclusion of the pagesize=100 parameter, which is the maximum number of items that can be retrieved from the API.

  • How did you get a .stackexchange.com sub-domain? :D

  • @Benny: It's not mine - Stack Exchange offered to install and run Stack2RSS on their server. It's an open-source application. Mar 19, 2012 at 16:29
  • Great! There is an additional advantage: I can see, if there are already answers.
