Can't RSS category bug (1 post)

    To make a long story short I was trying to get RSS campaign set up for my Mail Chimp Account and I couldn't get the RSS to filter by category. So I tried a different install of WordPress that had the All in One SEO and it worked perfect.

    Digging deeper into my investigation I realized that it was the /category/ That WordPress was looking for a category feed.
    If I would try to get the feed for this specific category it would always re-direct to the page.
    eg. >> http://32spokes.com/free-tips/feed always re-directed to
    http://32spokes.com/free-tips/

    But the site wide feed always worked properly as an RSS feed.

    I then removed this setting:
    Strip the category base (usually /category/) from the category URL.

    And BINGO!

    The Category Feed generated perfectly.
    feed://32spokes.com/category/free-tips/feed

    So for now and the foreseeable future I guess I will have to keep the category in my permalink structure. (Not really a bad thing, Just something a little buggy)
