FeedAPI: purge and refresh all feeds

6 years ago

It often happens that I've added and configured a load of feeds, only to discover afterwards that I should have done something differently from the start, so I need to purge and refresh all the feeds I've already created.

I would say that after spending weeks on this site that I am left with two particular things that stick out in my mind, book outlining and menu management.
