What aggregator are you using?  Some aggregators key updates to the
urls in the feed, and since page urls don't change when there's an
update, the aggregator never notices.

In these cases we have to "trick" the aggregator into seeing a
different url every time a page is updated.  I think this can be done
with something like:

  $FeedFmt['rss']['item']['link'] = '{$PageUrl}?when=$ItemISOTime';

You might -- you'll need your aggregator to be able to authenticate
itself with your webserver.  But that's really outside of PmWiki.  :-)

Let me know if the above fixes the problem you're seeing.
