[resolved] RSS Feed Error (8 posts)

    Link: http://www.the-heap.com/feed

    Hi,

    I'm getting the following error when trying to access my feeds...

    XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
    Location: http://www.the-heap.com/feed/
    Line Number 6, Column 1:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    ^

    Can someone please give me a step by step explanation of what I need to do to fix the error. I've search and found out that the problem might be due to space...but I don't know where to delete the space. I've also installed and ran fix-rss plugin and it didn't work. I think it's because the plugin fixes problems on line number 2 and my problem is on line number 6. Any help would be appreciated.

    Your feed seems fine to me.

    Thanks Esmi for the reply? When you clicked on the link you didn't get the error message? I'm working in firefox 3.6.6 and I also have safari. In both browsers I got the error message above.

    No error here either (Chrome browser).

    No error using FF 3.6.6

  6. No error using Safari 5.0, Camino 2.0.3, or FF 3.6.6, and your feed is perfectly valid:

    There are some warnings regarding how your videos are embedded, but these are generally unavoidable and won't cause any trouble.

    Thank you to everyone who replied. I don't know why I wasn't able to see the feed. I downloaded google chrome and opened the link in there and I didn't get a error message. I guess firfox and safari were just trippin. Anyway, thanks.

  8. You're welcome!
