[resolved] Pinterest RSS Feed Error (15 posts)

    Looks like something changed with the Pinterest RSS Feeds that is causing the plugin to bomb out?

    With the regular widget call we get the error....
    A feed with an invalid mime type may fall victim to this error, or SimplePie was unable to auto-discover it.. Use force_feed() if you are certain this URL is a real feed.

    When I use force_feed(true) for the simple pie call we get the following error...
    This XML document is invalid, likely due to invalid characters. XML error: SYSTEM or PUBLIC, the URI is missing at line 2, column 48

    Same problem here, the plugin stopped working for me about 30 hours ago. Shortcode in posts and php on any page has NEVER worked for me, and I'm running WP 3.5.1 and 2.2.1 of this plugin. Interesting side note, I swapped out plugins and this one bombs out too: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pinterest-pinboard-widget/

    Yeah, something must have changed with the way the Pinterest RSS feed is being constructed.

    Seems to load alright in RSS feed readers, but for some reason the Simple Pie class is having issues with it.

    Hoping the plugin author updates to support the updated feed format.

    Strange. In my testing environment everything is functioning properly. I just double checked and it's loading all my latest pins as it is supposed to. Can you give me the links to your websites where the problem is so I can have a look?

    That is strange.

    This is going to be difficult to troubleshoot since I can't replicate the problem.

    Can you try adding $rss->force_feed(true); on line 61 of pinterest-rss-widget.php so that it looks like this:

    $rss = fetch_feed($pinsfeed);
    $rss->force_feed(true);
    $rss->set_timeout(60);

    and then let me know if that solves the problem?

    Yeah, that still breaks the page for me. I'll pm you a link to the url.

    Hmmm...same result. Can you replace your local setup with our feed?

    I had previously updated the WordPress feed include to do the force_feed() and it errored with....

    This XML document is invalid, likely due to invalid characters. XML error: SYSTEM or PUBLIC, the URI is missing at line 2, column 48

    Curiouser and curiouser...

    Your feed works fine in my test environment as well, floodlightdesign (see screenshot here: http://imgur.com/KEsrbWl)

    Looks like it might be a theme or conflicting plugin issue?

    @optimalpatrick: if you'd like me to test your feed I can if you provide the Pinterest username.

    Same thing for optimalpatrick. Screenshot here: http://imgur.com/svtaxxH

    I don't know what to say other than try deactivating your plugins to see if it works, and then possibly try a different theme.

    Thanks for looking into it, BK. So strange, I just reactivated the plugin so I could do some more troubleshooting, and the feed just started working again. I must need a hair of the dog...
