RSS feed lost (9 posts)

    I help blog at fuzzyskeletonian.com (NSFW pictures on an art blog)

    About six weeks ago due to an error we had to uninstall WP and reinstall. The blog is fine, working great now, but the RSS feed was lost and we're having trouble getting it back. If we go out to the link manually all the posts are there:


    However no one is getting posts in their RSS reader. The feed cannot be found with any RSS reader we've tried, or with online RSS verification tools.

    We had to reinstall Jetpack when we reinstalled WP, and used the Jetpack option to have an RSS link to subscribe to posts and/or comments. We have no idea if Jetpack might be the problem, but removing the RSS widget and adding it back didn't do anything.

    Any thoughts on what is going wrong?

    Feed is here, http://fuzzyskeletonian.com/feed/

    Looks like you fixed it.

    No, it's not fixed.

    As I already said, if we go out to the link directly the feed looks fine, but it does NOT show up on RSS readers, when we try to validate it, etc. None of the subscribers are getting the posts, and they haven't since May.

    The feed link you posted, http://fuzzyskeletonian.com/wp-feed/ was incorrect. This is the correct link, http://fuzzyskeletonian.com/feed/

    Have you tried to set up your landing page as a WordPress Page? You can copy the html, paste it into a WordPress Page and then make that page a static page. http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page

    BTW, I get your feed in Outlook. Was your last post July 17?

    You know, I didn't explain myself well enough earlier, I apologize. Let me clarify:

    I tried all the example feeds given on the WordPress sites on this link


    That includes http://fuzzyskeletonian.com/feed/ -- so we DID try it before.

    When we go out to that link to the feed, it stops at the end of May. That July post isn't there. I can't understand how you used that feed address and got the July post when going out there directly shows the most recent post in May. When you go to http://fuzzyskeletonian.com/feed/ do you see the July 17 post?

    I've tried subscribing again with the link you used in Google Reader (and RSS Bandit but I think it pulls from Google Reader) and it only shows posts to May, nothing after. I tried the validator at w3.org and feedvalidator.org, but neither can find the feed, not even with the link you used.

    I am VERY confused here. How is it possible that feed can work for you but not for us?

    Yes, I see 4 posts in June and 2 in July from Firefox. They are excerpts which is normal for FF. In IE I see the same but they are complete with the graphics. In Safari your landing page comes up and also in Chrome but it doesn't have a rss reader anyway. In Outlook I see the same thing I see in IE. In Google Reader it only shows through feed through May.


    I haven't checked all the browsers but in FF, http://fuzzyskeletonian.com/comments/feed/ also works.

    [edit]PS. Vincent is very strange :^)

    Vincent is my husband.

    I'm also on Firefox, but on a hunch I cleared cookies and cache and all manually (which is supposed to be automatically cleared when I run my antispyware software, but apparently it isn't -- so I learned something new today). I think I see the problem -- that splash page for the adult content warning is stuck at the feed link, and now I can't get into the blog at all. It is probably affecting the RSS feed.

    I didn't set up the splash page personally but I'm pretty sure it was an add-on to WP. We'll check into it and post here if it turns out it ISN'T a splash page issue, but I think it is.

    Thanks for the help.

    I meant "strange" in a positive way. The graphics are pretty cool.

    Thanks. No offense taken, I promise.
