[resolved] HELP! RSS URL not opening correct URL (18 posts)

    Can someone PLEASE help me. I have been trying to figure out my RSS feed for HOURS. I have added the RSS URL as http://www.milkallergyguide.com/feed/

    HOWEVER, when you click on the RSS button it sends you straight to my domain (www.milkallergyguide.com)

    I have tried everything and spend hours reading before asking for help. Is there some type of code interfering? Is there something else I need to do. Please any help.

    [No bumping, thank you.]

    Your RSS feed is currently being redirected to Feedburner.

    I guess I should mention I'm a newbie. Is there any help you can provide me to fix/repair? I've spent countless hours just trying understand RSS and Feedburner. The tutorials and how-to sections do not help at all.

    I don't understand what the problem is. Your feed appears to be working just fine and you have installed & activated the redirect (plugin?) to Feedburner.

    If you are on my homepage http://www.milkallergyguide.com and click on RSS feed on right sidebar. It does not open the feed, it simply just redirects to homepage.
    Another way of saying this is:
    I have added URL http://www.milkallergyguide.com/feed/ to the RSS widget. However it isn't opening when you click on the RSS button on the homepage.

    No it doesn't. I've just tried it and it goes straight to your Feedburner account.

    I have added URL http://www.milkallergyguide.com/feed/ to the RSS widget.

    No! Never add your own feed to the RSS widget on your site.

    ok-- you are obviously way advanced then me. I don't see any steps on how to fix this problem.

    I have followed instructions in detail on wordpress and feedburner and did what I thought they said to do. I am not understanding somthing.

    What URL am I supposed to be adding to the RSS widget? It states "Enter the RSS feed URL here:" ?

    You don't have a problem. Your feed link works just fine.

    This is bizarre to me. You are saying it's working but when I open my homepage and click on the RSS tab it doesn't open to my feeds (it just directs to homepage). Could this be something to do with browzer? I am using Firefox?

    can you also explain:

    No! Never add your own feed to the RSS widget on your site.

    Ok-- I just realized something on my own. I have been clicking on the Title "MAG" beside the RSS button and that is opening up my home page. I'm not sure why? DO I need to remove title or change it?

    Yes, if clicking on orange RSS button -feed does open.

    when I open my homepage and click on the RSS tab it doesn't open to my feeds

    Remember to press CTRL and F5 simultaneously when viewing an updated page/site. Or try emptying your browser cache. This should ensure that your web browser fetches a fresh copy of the page rather than serving up an out-dated copy from your own cache.

    What URL am I supposed to be adding to the RSS widget?

    Feeds from other sites. Never your own.

    clicking on the Title "MAG" beside the RSS button

    Get rid of that RSS widget. Then try adding the Meta widget to your sidebar.

    Ok- got rid of the RSS widget and added Meta. Don't know what Meta is or how it will open up my feed though????????? So confused. All I want is an RSS button where people can subscribe to my blog. I can't believe it's this confusing.

    So I'm assuming with MEta you cannot have the RSS button?

    The Meta widget adds a link to your RSS feed. Try looking at your site's sidebar now.

    What I am really after is found at http://www.mscareergirl.com/

    Do you know or anyone know how to get a nice line-up of RSS, email, Facebook, etc tabs for people to connect to your blog.

    This is a great example : http://www.mscareergirl.com/

    Is this a widget I need to download or plugin?

    Try looking for a sharing plugin.
