    Hi

    Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong. In the top right and corner I have 2 feeds; post feed and comments feed. when I click on them I get a firefox error and an IE error.

    Can anybody tell me where I am going wrong. I have tried changing the link in the header.php to no avail.

    My site is:

    Might help us help you if you post your header.php file somewhere where we can see it, like a text file on your website.

    If you hold your mouse over both links without clicking, you will note that those are not URLs.

    Whomeever built your theme put some broken links for the feeds. If you look, you'll see:

    <dl>
    <dt><strong>Feed on</strong></dt>
    <dd><a href="feed:Change%20your%20thoughts">Posts</a></dd>
    <dd><a href="feed:Change%20your%20thoughts">Comments</a></dd>
    </dl>

    What's missing? Why, the actual link to the feed!

    So. now. Look in your theme files and find the section where that is created. What's THAT source look like?

    And while there, remove "feed:" from the source just to save your next topic being about why your browser doesn't recognize the "feed protocol"... ;-)

    You're a star, that's it now working thanks for that. I don't know if there was a touch of sarcasm in your post but thanks anyway.

    Regards

    Glad you got it going. :-)

    Engaging and bantering are perilously close to sarcasm. But it's a tightrope I'm willing to walk. ;-)
