    I'm trying to call this feed

    http://www.vbhealth.org/wp/category/cyndy/feed

    from a widget on the site, and am getting an error:

    "An error has occurred; the feed is probably down. Try again later."

    What am I doing wrong?

    I was able to bring your feed up in Google Reader using the above feed URL - one post, Interesting Times.

    Try this alternate feed format URL:

    http://www.vbhealth.org/wp/wp-rss2.php?cat=33

    Sub your actual cat ID code for 33

    Thank you! OK, I've tried that. Now it's bringing up the wrong feed. The widget says

    http://www.vbhealth.org/wp/wp-rss2.php?cat=13

    but the item being displayed is the top item in category 15. Any ideas?

    What happens when you put cat=15 in the URL? (curious)

    You are positive that cat13 is the correct cat code for the category you want?

    Yes, I'm positive, and I also double-checked to make sure the bad post that's showing didn't accidentally get added to category 13.

    Changing it to category 15 delivers the top event in category 3! And the header for the widget seems to be pointing to the whole-site feed rather than the link to the category.

    Hi

    I've not heard of anything like this occurring before. I notice on your site you are using both tags and categories. Are you positive you are not getting tag and category ID codes mixed up?

    Yep -- I'm not calling tags from anywhere at the moment, just adding them to posts so that I can call them if we want them later.
