[resolved] RSS 2.0 Feed empty (7 posts)

    Hi guys,

    I recently fixed my Atom feed with your help, so i was hoping you could help me with this aswell.

    I got a comment of a user that RSS 2.0 wasn't working anymore. I checked it, and indeed the feed is showing up empty.

    I have checked several topics, but i don't think this problem is in there, because the tag-markup isn't good. I checked a feed validator, and it gave me this error:

    http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http://www.vmx.nl/?feed=rss2

    #line 23, column 0: Unexpected Text [help]

    \category>A State Of Trance</category>

    #line 23, column 30: XML parsing error: <unknown>:23:30: mismatched tag [help]

    \category>A State Of Trance</category>

    I know a little something about php/html and i know that tag isn't good, but i don't know how to fix it.

    If i look inside the source-code, everything is in there. But it isn't showing up.

    I hope that someone can help me with this one!

    Feed location: http://www.vmx.nl/?feed=rss2

    Thanks in advanced :)

    Looks like a typo actually. Note the missing '<' mark in front of the first category in line 23. That's strange.

    Which version of wp are you running?

    Yeah, that's where i was pointing to, the tags.

    I am currently running 2.0.5. Sorry that i didn't mention that.

    I hope you can help me :)

    Try to upload a fresh copy of the wp-rss2.php file.

    and consider updating to the latest wordpress edition. the earlier versions have security issues!
