    [Please do not post in all caps - it's considered yelling and is against the forum rules]

    Somebody please help....our "news stories" are being posted, but this error is showing up on our website at http://www.knlw.org. WHAT is going on?? Can anybody please help us?? We're not very technical.

    Error: Feed failed! Causes may be (1) No data found for RSS feed http://knlw.org/wp/category/news/&feed=rss2; (2) There are no items are available for this feed; (3) The RSS feed does not validate.

    Please verify that the URL http://knlw.org/wp/category/news/&feed=rss2 works first in your browser and that the feed passes a validator test.

    I am not sure I understand. Your feed is here, http://www.knlw.org/feed

    Yes the feed works...but if you look on our homepage...http://www.knlw.org...we have a big error message instead of the normal list of "news" stories. Thanks for any help you can provide!

    You have entered and incorrect url for the feed in whatever javascript or html you used to create the site. Is this a wordpress site?

    We made the site and use the RSS feed to get the stories posted...We havent touched any code. It's been fine up to yesterday when I did the WordPress upgrade and back up.

    When I did those changes, that's when things fell apart.

    The theme you are using here:

    http://knlw.org/wp/

    Is quite outdated and no longer supported - you should really find a more current theme.

    You are using this, http://feed2js.org/ to set up your feed. Try building a new javascript with their tool.

    The feed on the wp site is fine so it looks like their script is not working with wp 3.5.2

    And now the theme has changed on the wp site. You had the default theme when I first looked.

    You could also try setting up a new script at http://feedroll.com/rssviewer/
    since you are using their javascript also.

    This script,

    <script language="JavaScript" src="http://feed2js.org//feed2js.php?src=http%3A%2F%2Fknlw.org%2Fwp%2Fcategory%2Fnews%2F%26feed%3D<rss2&num=4&desc=32&date=y&tz=-6" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <noscript>
    <a
    href="http://feed2js.org//feed2js.php?src=http%3A%2F%2Fknlw.org%2Fwp%2Fcategory%2Fnews%2F%26feed%3Drss2&num=4&desc=32&date=y&tz=-6&html=y">View
    RSS feed</a>
    </noscript>

    that comes from this website, http://feed2js.org/ is wrong. It is calling for rss2. You need to go there and build another script.

    Sorry, I don't know exactly what you want it to look like and also just don't have time. It has a preview button so you can see differences in choices you might make before you generate the code.

    Someone else may jump in here also.

    You are using script that was output on this site, http://feed2js.org/
    It has a preview and generate code button that you will see.

    You would go to the build tab and start there.

    If this is too complicated you might consider hiring someone at http://jobs.wordpress.net/ But this is not a wordpress "thing" so I don't know what kind of response you will get.
