In particular, the "Ushahidi Platform v3.x" section contains information that is often misleading. Many details about this version of Platform have changed since.

Hey guys! I'm setting Ushahidi for the first time and nothing seems to be working...

- The RSS feeds are not working. I added a few feeds but they don't seem to work, it just doesn't get the updates. Could anybody tell me exactly how to make them work? I added the RSS feed URL, should I add something else?

- The hashtags were working before but then I changed a couple of them and now none hashtag seems to work.

- The email updates doesn't work either. I test the settings and it says it does work, but it doesn't get the emails in te inbox.

Does anybody has any idea what am I doing wrong? Do you anyone who can help me with this?

Thanks a lot!
