RSS-Bridge ships a few options the host may or may not activate. All options are listed in the config.default.ini.php file, see Custom Configuration section for more information.

Customizable cache timeout

Sometimes it is necessary to specify custom timeouts to update contents more frequently than the bridge maintainer intended. In these cases the client may specify a custom cache timeout to prevent loading contents from cache earlier (or later).

This option can be activated by setting the cache.custom_timeout option to true. When enabled each bridge receives an additional parameter Cache timeout in seconds that can be set to any value between 1 and 86400 (24 hours). If the value is not within the limits the default settings apply (as specified by the bridge maintainer).

The cache timeout is send to RSS-Bridge using the _cache_timeout parameter. RSS-Bridge will return an error message if the parameter is received and the option is disabled.
