A few months ago I took over a community blog and everything worked fine those first few times. After a busy month of server and community work I realized that our homepage feed was broken with the following error message
Error: Feed failed! Causes may be (1) No data found for RSS feed http://www.spirit.yfma.com/feed; (2) There are no items are available for this feed; (3) The RSS feed does not validate.
Please verify that the URL http://www.spirit.yfma.com/feed works first in your browser and that the feed passes a validator test.
Since wordpress appeared to still be functional I figured I would write an entry to awknowledge the issue, but when I submitted the post it didn't appear on the wordpress page or feed. After some checking I found that the post was dated Dec 14th 1999; however the wordpress options for "Date and Time" reads 2007.
