Repairing Broken RSS Feed (8 posts)

    So, I have two RSS feeds on my site (http://www.sjbmx.com) that I routinely use: http://www.sjbmx.com/feed and http://www.sjbmx.com/comments/feed. Both have been down for about a week, since before I upgraded to 2.9.

    I've tried opening the feeds in the latest builds of Firefox and IE to no avail, and sites that read my feeds - with the exception of Google Reader for some reason - also run into trouble reading the feeds.

    This lead me to believe that the feeds were broken, and Googling that told me to reinstall clean versions of all of the various files involving RSS feeds. I also reinstalled all of the various files in the template I'm using. However, this has not fixed the problem.

    I've just now done a manual reinstall of every WordPress 2.9 file, and the issue's still there...

    I just ran validations on both feeds and noticed the following code after the end </RSS> of both feeds.

    <adsttnmq1><font style="position: absolute;overflow: hidden;height: 0;width: 0">dfkj31sk342</font></body></html><sdioyslkjs2>

    I'm assuming that this is the culprit. If so, how do I go about removing it from the feeds?

    Anyone? It's not in any on the various feed.php or rss.php files on the server.

    Fixed it. It turns out that the culprit code wasn't actually in the WordPress directory, but was in the WWW root for the site.

    Thanks, alism!
