Feed has stopped working (7 posts)

    My feed has stopped working for some unknown reason. I was using feedburner and noticed that it wasn't working any longer. Subscribers were getting a blank page. I cancelled my feed with feedburner, deleted my feedburner plugin and tried to get my feed with the url http://www.mydomain.com/feed/ thinking it might be something with feedburner and it still linked me back to feedburner, this time with a page stating there was a problem. I then burned a new link with feedburner, installed a new plugin and it still takes me to a feedburner page stating there is a problem. I ran the feedmedic and it said the feed is healthy and fine.

    I have no idea where to go from here. I still can't figure out why I was still linked to feedburner when I cancelled the link with them and deleted the plugin. Any ideas? I haven't made any changes to my site.

    Can you clarify what you are asking? By default, WordPress installations create feeds. You shouldn't need a plugin to get this functionality, unless you wanted functionality that does not exist by default in WordPress.

    If you did in fact setup FeedBurner on your install, check here to make sure you followed the setup procedure correctly.

    When I installed wordpress my feed worked fine. The url http://www.mydomain.com/feed/ would produce my wordpress site's feed. I then installed feedburner, followed the directions and everything worked fine for the last 2 months. Then suddenly I noticed that the feed was not working. If you clicked on the RSS button, it would ask if you wanted to bookmark the feed, but there was no feed there. RSS feed links for my site that I had installed on other sites no longer worked either.

    With the news I've been reading lately about google dropping feedburner in the near future, I thought maybe it had something to do with that so I deleted my burned link with feedburner and deleted the feedburner plugin. I then checked the standard wordpress feed by entering the url http://www.mydomain.com/feed/. It linked me to a feedburner page that says an error has occured. 404, feed not found. If I deleted my burned in link and the plugin, how could feedburner still be linked to my feed?

    I then burned a new feed link with feedburner, installed a different feedburner plugin and I get the same error message. I can't figure out were the problem lies. Is it feedburner or my site? When I tried to eliminate feedburner I was still linked to it somehow. I thought that by breaking the link to them it would tell me whether or not the problem is with my site's feed or not. I'm totally lost at this point.

  4. Are you using pretty permalinks?

    I'm using post name permalinks. The only change I have made on my site was to install an announcement plugin. I learned that my installation was about one week after I started to have the feed problems though. I uninstalled the plugin to see if it made a difference but it didn't.

  6. Try resaving your permalinks.
