RSS doesn't validate (3 posts)

    It's just been pointed out to me that the RSS feeds on a site launched today aren't validating, and aren't loading correctly in some RSS readers. For example, this feed:

    http://www.newyorkoverheard.com/wp-rss2.php

    Loads just fine in Thunderbird for me, but a friend can't load it in his reader, and feedvalidator.org is reporting a "404: Not Found" error for that feed, even as it displays the entire feed and points out a few other code errors.

    Would this indicate a problem with the WordPress installation, or is this a bug with a known fix?

    Thanks!

    Try:

    http://www.newyorkoverheard.com/?feed=rss2

    I'm not sure of the cause of the 404 though.

    Thanks. I figured out that the default query-type feed URLs worked, so just changed all the links to point to those.

    Nobody has seen the 404 error before, though? It seems pretty odd...
