    Hi how do I sort my feed out.

    This is the link to my feed

    http://www.nicktoye.co.uk/wordpress/wp-rss2.php

    But what I want is to have it in an xml file and not linked through the wordpress file structure.

    That is an xml file. What exactly do you want to do with it?

    Does it matter that I link to a php file as my rss feed?

    Obviously not, since everyone who uses WordPress does. But if your server supports .htaccess and mod_rewrite, this plugin can help you "fake it".

    Not as far as I can tell. I process all my feeds through feedburner, and it's never had any problems parsing wp-rss2.php.

    Do I have to process the feeds, can't I just link to it?

    Also when I tried to Live Bookmark it, it says:

    Live Bookmark failed to load

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply that you needed to do any additional processing for your feed; you do not. I use feedburner just so I can get feed-related statistics and take advantage of splicing services.

    Live Bookmarks is trying to add this feed: http://www.nicktoye.co.uk/feed/. That gives me a 404, which tells me you may have a problem in your .htaccess file, or you have an actual /feed/ directory which you need to delete. More info in a related thread here.

    I don't seem to have a feed directory,

    This is my .htaccess file

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^category/(.*)/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ /wordpress/wp-feed.php?category_name=$1&feed=$2 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^category/?(.*) /index.php?category_name=$1 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^author/(.*)/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ /wordpress/wp-feed.php?author_name=$1&feed=$2 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^author/?(.*) /index.php?author_name=$1 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^([0-9]{4})/?([0-9]{1,2})?/?([0-9]{1,2})?/?([_0-9a-z-]+)?/?([0-9]+)?/?$ /index.php?year=$1&monthnum=$2&day=$3&name=$4&page=$5 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^([0-9]{4})/?([0-9]{1,2})/([0-9]{1,2})/([_0-9a-z-]+)/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ /wordpress/wp-feed.php?year=$1&monthnum=$2&day=$3&name=$4&feed=$5 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^([0-9]{4})/?([0-9]{1,2})/([0-9]{1,2})/([_0-9a-z-]+)/trackback/?$ /wordpress/wp-trackback.php?year=$1&monthnum=$2&day=$3&name=$4 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^feed/?([_0-9a-z-]+)?/?$ /wordpress/wp-feed.php?feed=$1 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^comments/feed/?([_0-9a-z-]+)?/?$ /wordpress/wp-feed.php?feed=$1&withcomments=1 [QSA]
