[resolved] RSS feed does not work (3 posts)

    I added feed.xml to the root of my blog site, http://www.bododiehn.net/hello-world
    I added the link http://www.bododiehn.net/feed.xml in "RSS" of the Primary Widget Area, telling it to show 10 items with content, author and date.
    Here's feed.xml which btw was validated as ok by feedvalidator.com :

    <?xml version="1.0" ?>
    <rss version="2.0">

    <channel>

    <title>Food for Thought</title>
    <description>Unpopular Views on Politics, Science, and Literature</description>
    <link>http://boddiehn.net/hello-world</link>

    </channel>

    </rss>

    But when I fire up Google Reader and subscribe, "Food for Thought has no items" comes up. I do in fact have several items on the blog site, as you'll be able to see.

    I am stymied.

  2. You don't need to add a feed.xml file to generate a feed. RSS is built in. Try feed://www.bododiehn.net/feed/ not feed.xml
