[resolved] Feed not working (9 posts)

    A month ago I deleted my old blog and started over.
    I used to burn my feeds with Feedburner on my old blog. I don't use that anymore, but my old subscribers still get updates in their newsfeed.
    The problem I have now is that the RSS button (which is part of my new theme) points to http://www.scrapster.be/feed/ while it should point to http://www.scrapster.be/blog/feed/
    Now when someone clicks my RSS button, all they see is a white screen.
    How can I change that?

    How did you add the RSS url to your site's header?

    I didn't it was part of my theme. I checked the header and found this:
    <li> <a>"> <img src="<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/images/rss.png"> </a> </li>
    Unfortunately, I don't know enough of coding to be able to change this...

    <li> <a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>"> <img src="<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/images/rss.png"> </a> </li>

    Where did you install WordPress on your domain?

    In the root. Why?

    I'm trying to figure out what you have http://www.scrapster.be/blog/feed/ as your feed url. That suggests that you originally installed WordPress in a sub-folder called blog.

    My feed has always been http://www.scrapster.be/feed/ and I would prefer it to still be that. It's just that since the new theme, I went to http://validator.w3.org and when I typed the url there, it didn't validate. When I typed http://www.scrapster.be/blog/feed/ it did validate. But like I said I would really prefer it to be just scrapster.be/feed! I never installed wordpress in a subfolder...

    Ok, I found the culprit. It was the plugin 'Advanced Permalinks' that was causing this. I deactivated it and my feed works fine now.
    Thanks for trying to help me esmi!
