Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

4.1.4 Windows x64 (Windows 10)

What is the problem

After downloading exactly 200 items from an RSS feed, RSS Downloader just ignoring items it should be downloading.

What is the expected behavior

Download items on RSS feed

Steps to reproduce

My tracker has a "Personal RSS feed" feature. On tracker website I can add a particular torrent to my "personal feed". It will remain on that feed until the first time the feed is checked and then it will be removed. QBT is set to check this feed once per minute and download all items on this feed. This worked fine....until I had downloaded exactly 200 torrents from this feed. After the 200th item, it would work, for NEW torrents, but if I wanted to download a old torrent, it would not work. Increasing the "Maximum number of articles per feed" from 200 to 1000 fixed it. QBT seems to be sorting the articles by "pubDate", and if the new articles are old enough to put them past the 200 maximum (or whatever it's set to), they never get downloaded. There is no workaround except to keep increasing the maximum.

Yes. It is. qBittorrent uses pubDate to differentiate between new and old articles.

Well I believe a solution should be devised that can accommodate people who use this type of "personal" RSS feed. Perhaps it should use the date it first saw the RSS item rather than pubDate?
