    I have got everything cooking and 2 bridges to dolphin and phpbb3 to boot but for the life of me, I can't figure out why my feeds have died.
    My main domain site feed works fine but none of the sub sites work anymore. I have tried entering the feed into feedburner and the validator and they can't be found.
    I am in process of adding 4 more sites to my network and really need to get thsi going to autopost to facebook.

    Anyone?
    sube site example:
    foranglersbyanglers.forhuntersbyhuunters/feed
    main site forhuntersbyhunters.com
    thanks in advance.
    I wanted to search but this forum doent' have that option?

    Oh, feedburner shows that it sees 3 feeds ( a ecommerce, comments and post- but it won't validate the post- I tried it with rss grafitti as well- no luck.

    If I use:
    http://704outdoors.forhuntersbyhunters.com/?feed=rss2
    I get text in chrome but linked to site home page in IE
    If I use another subdomain I get no text at all.
    There doenst appear to be any consistancy with this.

    2 of the sites stopped feeds a week ago- the other sites are less than 24 hours old. The main site is a year old and works fine

  5. What did you install a week ago?

    New plugin? Upgraded WP? Edited a theme?

    A week ago, all kinds of stuff- too much to list.
    After disabling all plug ins, I still have the problem.
    Also- the WPMU subsites are different templates but they all have the same issue. My host says it isn't the server.
    Thank you for your interest and assistance.

    I installed feedburner plug in.
    Without it, the subdomain.dtld.com/feed or ...?=rss2 etc all resolve to the main page. All feed validators say that it is a website and not a feed.
    Chrome shows rss text with the rss feed but no valdator will acept it as a feed.
    With the feedburner plugin the feeds @ .../feed resolve to a random post on each site.
    It is beyond me what is wrong.
    Here is my setup:

    Root---> WPMU
    Subdomain--->phpbb3 forum Broidged <-- feeds works fine
    Sub directory--->Dolphin 7
    WPMU and Domphin are new installs.
    I dont think that they would have any impact and my host says they shouldn't.

    sub sites use default permalinks
    http://example.com/?feed=rss
    http://example.com/?feed=rss2
    http://example.com/?feed=rdf
    http://example.com/?feed=atom
    main site uses custom permalinks
    /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%.html (blogger forward link juice for SEO)
    http://example.com/feed/
    http://example.com/feed/rss/
    http://example.com/feed/rss2/
    http://example.com/feed/rdf/
    http://example.com/feed/atom/
    I changed one of the sub sites permalinks to:
    /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%
    If set to default it seems to make no difference.

    It looks like this is a web page, not a feed. I looked for a feed associated with this page, but couldn't find one. Please enter the address of your feed to validate.

    Well. The problem there is that MOST likely one of them is the culprit.

    I have disabled all plugins - it still doesn't work. I hgave added plugins mostly and a bridge to WP from dlophin and to phpbb3 from wp.
    Where do I go from here for assistance?

  12. A week ago, all kinds of stuff- too much to list.

    It goes back to that.

    Undo what you did a week ago.

    Try RENAMING the plugins folder (also mu-plugins) and see if it kicks back.

    Check any caches you have running.

    I also had the install completed around that time- it is a new wpmu install.
    The main site feds, the subs do not. I relaize that something is causing this problem from that period of time - logically and whatever it was had a direct impact on the issue. Classic cause and effect.
    What I am looking for is a way to fix the problem. If I knew what caused it, It would be less likely that I would be here asking for assistance.
    Here is the main site:
    forhuntersbyhunters.com
    Here is a sub site
    704outdoors.forhuntersbyhunters.com
    I renamed plug inf folder- no help.
    Same problem. I have exhausted everything that I can think of tryig to find the problem and so I also realize that the only thing that I have done is added plugins and then disabled and renamed the folder . I had different templates- so I do not think it was a template issue.
    Permalinks are also a problem- when set to anything but default they will not work to get to the post page. I am not sure if it is related but I know that there is somethig wrong- what it is does go back to when the problem started but I am unclear as to what it could be other than a template or plug in- and I have eliminated both as a cause.
    The main site permalinks work great set in custm- and have maintained links on the web.

    Right. But as you said, you did a lot.

    Permalinks are also a problem- when set to anything but default they will not work to get to the post page

    OH OH! NOW we know what the real problem is! The problem is your PERMALINKS won't work! Betcha UGLY feed URLs work! http://example.com/?feed=rss

    Okay, then. What happens when you set permalinks? Do they save but not work? Do they not save?

    If they save and not work, it's likely your httpd.conf file not havign AllowOverride set to ALL.

    Permalinks changed to custom on the main site work but do not work on the sub sites.
    The permalinks set to ugly or custom work (meaning the url is changed) but the sub site "That 'something' you are looking for isn't here!" click on the home page title.
    So you think that http://config.php needs a setting changed (overide) to ALL ?

    Do you mean http://wp-config.php ?

  17. No, no I mean httpd.conf.

    See, WordPress is using very complex .htaccess rules for Multisite, and sometimes a server gets stupid. When your main site is fine, but SUB sites are not, it means the htaccess isn't being fully parsed. Which implies the httpd.conf isn't set correctly and you need to play with AllowOverride.

    My host and I both verified .htaccess has this: (as suggested) but it isnt' working. What can I actually change?
    This was a transplanted main site with 2 other stand alone wp sites. We started a new wpmu and imported the sites and created a few others that function fine. What exactly can I change (not clear in the instructions) to make it work? I am not sure why I would need to make a change to make it work if I can create a new one that works.

    Both contain:
    SubDomain Example
    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    I am unalbe to find this file: httpd.conf

  20. It's a server file in the apache folders.

    My host tells me that the file is fine and that since we set up a test mu in apache without permalink or rss issues, that it isn't a host or httpd.conf issue.

  22. You have a multisite on this server already?

    Just this one- and we put another one on another domain...
    rubiconproject.us
    It has a main site and a test site- it works fine.

  24. Your host may be incorrect, since httpd.conf can set allowoverride PER DOMAIN.
