    My RSS feed shows an error caused by the second line becomes invalid in Feedburner and some RSS readers: "sorry

    This feed does not validate.

    line 2, column 0: XML parsing error: <unknown>: 2:00: XML or text declaration not at start of entity "

    Apparently this is line 2; "<? Xml version =" 1.0 "encoding =" UTF-8 ">"

    See this link to prove;

    Any help is welcome.

    What are you using to create the feed? A plugin? Part of your theme? WordPress can create an RSS or Atom feed without a plugin or theme support...

    Pioneer Valley Web Design, I am not using any Plugin to generate the RSS, is part of the theme.

    It is caused by the first line of your RSS output being blank

    That is usually caused by some messed up spacing in a file somewhere

    You can test if it is your theme by swapping themes and testing your feed

    If that fixes it, we have narrowed it doen

    If not, deactivate plugins, same test

    If that fixes it we reactivate plugins one by one and test in between tonarrow down the exact plugin

    If it's neither of those then it is caused by spacing showing up in a WP core file which we can work on...

    Rev. Voodoo Was reviewing the files. Php on my site and found one named "baztro.php" which appears as the first line "<? Php"

    Is this the error?
    How can I solve it.

    It is very hard for me to know what php files you should have, and where

    but php files will often start with

    <?php

    That is normal

    You seem to be having multiple issues, plugins, rss feed, etc. Have you considered testing all this using a default theme to rule out the root cause of your issues being the theme?
