1.5.1 RSS issue (38 posts)

    I did a handful of updates today, 8 of them appear to be fine.

    the 9th (of course, mine) has an issue:

    only wp-feed.php is returning with a feed.

    domain/feed/ (which usually works) is a blank page
    as are the other feed pages (even when called directly)

    I've tried:
    replacing htaccess with a fresh file (re did the permalinks)
    deleting the files and re installing them (ran upgrade.php again too, and it let me)
    deleting the files again and re installing them
    only deleting the rss related files and re uploading them.

    Is anyone else having this issue?

    I'm surprise that the other 8 are operating just fine, but this one is clunky.

    help?

    Excellent!

    This is confirmed: I simply posted something new and the /feed is working again as expected.

    However, now i notice that my comments are gone too...

    again, only on this blog (mine)

    what could have happened that would do that???

    weird.

    Well I upgraded to 1.5.1 and posted and my feed has a 'strtotime()' warning in it and nothing else :(

    I had the same (blank page) problem. I changed the "Show the Most Recent" field to 1, made a new post, accessed the feeds, reset it to 10, then the feeds worked.

    Just had the same problem - creating a new post fixed it.

    That's odd - just creating a new post didn't do it for me. I had to change the feed settings as well. Just FYI in case creating a new post doesn't work for someone.

    How did a bug like this make it through Q&A?

    Adding a new post didn't seem to do anything, and so far neither has changing the feed prefs and adding a post. I'll keep trying, but in the meantime, all of the 1.5.1 RSS feeds on my server are broken.

    I just upgraded to 1.5.1 too, and now all my feeds are dead. I access my feeds via domain/feeds (I don't know where any rss preferences are located).

    Safari RSS notices that there is a feed available, but clicking on the little RSS only stalls the tab. It doesn't actually go anywhere. I've tried switching permalink structures to index.php/... based ones from mod_rewrite ones, but so far I haven't had any luck. I've also tried putting out new posts, all to no avail.

    EDIT: now it's giving me this:
    Safari can’t open the page “feed://domain/feed/atom/�. The error was: “unknown error� (NSURLErrorDomain:-1) Please choose Report Bug to Apple from the Safari menu, note the error number, and describe what you did before you saw this message.

    Clicking on the feed link at the bottom just links me to an empty feed sheet (no postings at all)

    I tried editing a post and saving and my feeds came back - for awhile. Then they disappeared again. I tired posting something new - and they worked, but then failed again after a while. Lastly I changed the feed options - but that didn't do anything for me. Anyone else have this issue - the fix working for brief amounts of time?

    Probably a stupid question, but... You all ran upgrade.php right?

    to running upgrade.php -- yep.

    EDIT: on the WP dashboard, there's a link to Owen Winkler's page. I figure that since he's on the dashboard, he's probably pretty up on the functioning of WP. His feeds are busted too.

    Same problem. Writing a new post fixed the problem - afterwards just make a SHIFT-Reload with all Feed-Links to have the feeds show up again. Worked for me.

    what is a shift-reload, exactly? just keyboard commands?

    For those who are getting the "strtotime()" related error message, I think this is related to an error in the PHP code of WordPress when using PHP 5.0.4. I'm a new user of WordPress and after installing everything was working great except for the RSS feeds. This morning I downloaded and built PHP 4.3.11 and disabled 5.0.4 and now the feeds work and there is no "strtotime()" related error.

    BTW - If you are using Safari under Mac OS X 10.4 and you get the NSURLErrorDomain message that vinyl_warrior reported, I found that you can change the "feed:" part of your URL to "http:" and you will see the actual PHP error message that is being generated. In my case it was the "strtotime()" error message.

    Hope this helps.

    if i try to change feed: to http:, safari just changes it back.

    so far a new post hasn't fixed anything for me.

    But for me, things WERE just fixed by following the help files advice and emptying my cache. **shrug**. Now things also show up in Newsfire, whereas they didn't before. This is really bizarre.

    You have to create and publish a new post and it will work again. It worked for me. I tried just created a test post but that didn't work. So I spent the time to make a new post and published it. RSS works fine now.

    There are a few fixes and some good info here: http://mosquito.wordpress.org/view.php?id=1323

    Any fix info for those of us who don't have an SVN client installed? Like the code that has changed in order to repair the RSS feeds? :D

    I just posted new entries in the offending blog (mine) and the /feed was fixed.

    nothing special, but it is a weird problem.

    I have last trunk versio, update seconds ago, wp-atom.php send html tags () in the summary. It should be plain text.

    gallir, please report the bug to the proper location. That bug is also a separate issue from the one discussed above. If you would like to discuss it here, please start a new thread.

    allrighty, now my main RSS feed works with (another) new post, but the category feeds are still screwed.

    My feeds were broken because of a plugin, not because of the upgrade. Since I was in the middle of transferring my site to a new server at the same time as the 1.5.1 upgrade, and moving my WordPress install to a subdirectory, my feed won't be subject to the same problems as a typical install. So don't make comparisons to what I've done. Besides that, it's working fine now. :)

    Right, It's true.

    I just did a clearing out of my cache and the /feed doesn't really work.

    Seems like it's getting killed after a period of time?

    A new post will revive the feed output, but it's not stable, and dies (in 24 hours?)

    This is definitely a bug and needs to be corrected.

    @vinyl_warrior: I press SHIFT and F5 (or mouse on the reload button of my Firefox) to really get the page reloaded.

    @dss: Exactly this effect I recognize now, this morning. There is no feed anymore, but there has been one yesterday evening.

    This actually has been fixed by anonymousbugger

    I wrote it up for simplicity's sake here

    Not my work, but the fix has corrected my feeds and "/feed" page's output.

    Thank You Anonymousbugger!!!

    dss, thanks for posting anonymousbugger's solution, it worked for me. One thing you might do to make the change more obvious is point out that only one line actually needs to be changed, possibly by highlighting that line in a different background color.

    good idea.

    makes it even simpler!

    i like that!

    Dougal has posted a new solution, and it appears to be better, though time will tell.
