RSS Not working {{cid}}

Hi, 

 

I have a few Zap’s that output to an RSS feed for newsletters. They seems to have stopped working and new ones don't work either. 

The URL that is created by Zapier is showing a variable label and not the value. 

Example: https://zapier.com/engine/rss/{{cid}}/whatever 

I’m sure this used to show the unique ID instead of the {{cid}} but, either way, copying the link displays a 404

Any ideas’s 

 

Cheers

@Currently Jason you can continue to build them. Look at anyone of your previous RSS feeds used in your app/page, copy that number ID which you see in the url and simply plug that in to your new rss endpoint. 

Ah ok, got you. I thought they were unique to the URL and not the account. That helps, cheers

Zapier responded to me, providing me with my “id” to replace/substitute {{cid}}.  It is the same for all of my rss feeds, so this is all I needed to be back in order for now.  Hope this helps.

Thanks for that @michaelpool . I have news ones that I want to build that I’m waiting on. Hopefully, it will be fixed soon.

@IndustryWeapon @Nyx @Alberto Cantudo sorry you are encountering this! Our team is aware of the issue and are working on a fix- I've added you to the list of users affected by this issue so we can let you know as soon as we have any updates via email! 

It’s really annoying…

If you could tell a way to substitute {cid} for other value...

Yeah, I am experiencing the same issue. Does anyone have a fix?

 

I will be using another service until this is fixed.

 Any update on this?  Zapier RSS feeds are still down.

 

I have an email stating that it’s a known problem that they are working on. I’ll update here when I get something else.

We are experiencing the same issue. When I setup an RSS for social media, the URL contains the {{cid}} instead of our account number which is preventing new working RSS URLs from being created and I am seeing the same {{cid}} there in all existing URLs. 

This appears to be a sweeping issue. Are you working to resolve this across all accounts?
