fetch_feed error (3 posts)

    When I try to parse the following feed using fetch_feed:

    "http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?category=sports01&template=rss&mime=xml"

    I get a " strpos() expects parameter 1..." error. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Philip

    1. Calling a .dll in a link is not best practice and would in all likelihood be blocked by AV software and any good firewall.

    2. RSS is a fully & properly implemented function of WordPress.

    Thank you for your reply Swanson.
    There are many feeds that are generated in this fashion and other readers have no difficulties parsing them whether it be locally (ie: MS Outlook) or server based (Google Reader).

    I appreciate your suggestion but it is unlikely that an AV or firewall attributed to the issue. And yes, because WordPress has RSS as a fully & properly implemented function, I am fairly certain that it is user error (me) and not WordPress.

    Any help would be greatly apprciated.
