RSS Feed- Feedburner feed not found, 404 error (5 posts)

    Hi everyone,
    I have an issue getting my RSS feed to work on my wordpress.com powered website (www.dmcolombia.net).
    When I try and set up with Feedburner I come to the part that says:
    Identify Feed Source
    The feed URL you entered is:
    http://www.dmcolombia.net
    and it gives me 2 options of which I select http://www.dmcolombia.net/feed/
    I then get the error message:
    Received HTTP error: "Not Found" while fetching source feed.
    I've also used sources such as ismyblogworking.com and it says my RSS feed gets a 404 error.
    Any ideas on how to fix this?
    Also on what version of wordpress was the 'Socalize' function added? I can't find that...
    Thanks,
    Justin

    I am having the same problem with http://weddingsonkauai.com/feed. Feedvalidator.org gets a 404 error, but then displays the feed below. Ismyblogworking.com also gets a 404 error.

    The feed is browsable, though. I've searched and searched and tried disabling all plugins, changing permalinks back to default, etc., and nothing has worked. The validators all still see a 404 error.

    I've also read a handful of posts here in the forums that have the same problem, the user can't find a fix, and then suddenly their feeds are magically working again. I guess I haven't been that lucky. ;)

    Soooo, yes - if anyone knows of any other ideas to try, I'm game.

    Thanks!
    Michelle

    I ran into the same problem. I got rid of all the white lines in the .php files in the theme folder. I deactivated all my plugins. I screwed around with various things all afternoon, trying not to get frustrated. All the threads here, I thought, then... I ran into this one:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/rss-feed-page-not-found-4

    It turns out that I needed to have a post, so I made a blank one. Now the RSS works. See, my site is made up of pages, not posts. Now I have an RSS feed with nothing on it.

    If you know about this basic "thing", I guess I look stupid. But I really had no way of knowing. Is there any way to have a feed for my pages? Or is that just not reasonable?

    Well, I learned a few things today. Blog RSS's are meant for posts. I guess I missed that in the small print.
    I just found the right plugin, and now my pages are all going into the feed. The free plugin I used is called: RSS Includes Pages. It is free, and available via wordpress's plugin uploads. It is automatic. If you want to see how it works, you can take a look at the site I was working on: http://laser-book.com Now, instead of a useless blank post, I actually have an RSS feed for my "all-page/no-post" website. Yay.
