    Hi, I installed wordpress 2.6 in 2 sites and using the same themes but the rss extension is different for both sites. May I know why?

    One is http://www.site.com/?feed=rss2 and the other one is http://www.site.com/feed .

    How can i change the ?feed=rss2 to /feed in this case?

    Can someone please help?

    Thanks!

    I found the answer. You just need to change your permalink and this will fix it.

    Thanks, JustBlog! I've been hunting down the answer for that for weeks. Up until now, I've just been removing the RSS feed links from my blog or painstakingly going in and updating the links. But then my theme had a button on it that I couldn't figure out how to reprogram and was getting frustrated. Even wound up corrupting my database and suffered the hours of having it wiped clean off the browser board, so to speak. Thankfully I backed it up just before we left for a week's vacation, so an overwrite and some tweaking and I was up and running again.

    So keep it simple, people. Go to your permalinks, change it to the default and save. Once you've done that, your feed should be coming out of the ...blogurl/feed/ folder again.
