RSS Feed not working (32 posts)

    Hello everyone,

    After some time now, the rss feed of my site ( http://www.yesitsrita.com ) seems to have a problem (no updates come out on feedly, bloglovin or wordpress reader).
    When I check http://www.yesitsrita.com/feed/ I see the latest posts on top - ok; but not when I run a test via friendfeed

    Changes made to the site about the time this started that might have a relation with the problem:
    -wordpress 3.9.1 update;
    -changed from qTranslate to mqTranslate;
    -jetpack update;

    What I have done to try to solve the issue:
    -deactivated all plugins - didn't work
    -deleted all plugins I am not using - didn't work
    -reset the plugins file via the server - didn't work

    Anyone has any other possible solution?
    Please be aware, that all I did was based on suggestions I read online and that my IT knowledge is very basic, so please be patient and detailed in your answers (like talking to a 3 years old kid :) ).

    Many thanks!

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with your WordPress feed. It's 100% valid, so I can only surmise that the problems lie within the feed readers/aggregators.

    Hi esmi, thanks for your reply.
    I see your point, but it is really strange that all of these 3 I mentioned (feedly, bloglovin and even wordpress reader) have problems with specifically my site...I follow a lot of other sites/blogs and it looks like it works fine for them.

    I can't see any reason why any of these aggregators should have problems with your feed. Were you aware that feeds in aggregators may only be updated every 12 - 24 hours?

    esmi, my latest post dates from 27/05/2014...never showed up, neither the one published on 14/05/2014.

    Um - your feed only contains Post up to April 2014. Were these newer additions Pages or Posts?

    These I mentioned are regular posts.

    Can we see the site & feed using the default Twenty Fourteen theme with all plugins deactivated?

    Will this ruin my Oxygen theme definitions once I want to reactivate it?

    No. Your theme & plugin settings are saved in your database and should be retained for future use.

    You can have a look now, I just did what you requested :)

    Hi esmi, are you still following this? Can I go back to my previous template and activate all plugins? No feed update yet, but I would like to restore the looks of my site. Thanks

    Your site is not using the 2014 theme.

    It is the one I have activated since you asked me yesterday "twenty fourteen"...

    The theme currently active on your site is not 2014. It's still Oxygen.

    In that case I'm lost, because I changed to 2014 yesterday, and when I visit the site now, I see it completely "destroyed" under this new template.

    I have visited the site 3 times in the past 15 minutes and I see the Oxygen theme.

    Is there any way I can share a printscreen with you to show you that I do have 2014 activated and the way I see the site?

    You could try using http://snag.gy/ and posting the screenshot url here. I'd also try asking your hosts if they are running a web cache.

    So, this is my dashboard, where you can see the selected theme http://snag.gy/oYCDp.jpg and this is how I see the website live right now http://snag.gy/6HXDD.jpg

    In case there is a problem related to the cache, do you think this may also be the cause to the rss feed issue?

    (thanks for your patience)

    I'm sorry but I can only see the Oxygen theme right now. Are you using any caching plugins?

    I am (wp supercache), but all plugins were deactivated yesterday.

    Try flushing your cache.

    Ok, can you explain me how to do it? When I have the plugin activated I see a "delete cache" button, but now, as it is inactive I don't.

    Activate the plugin, delete the cache & then deactivate the plugin again.

    Sorry but I am still seeing a cached site.

    I deleted cache 2 times "just in case"...I really don't know what else I can do more to help you to help me.
    So, I guess I'll give up for now, and try to solve this cache issue first and then (if rss feed problem persists), I'll come back to ask for help.
    Thanks for your time and effort esmi.

    Try deleting the supercache plugin following the instructions on the plugin's page.

    Ok, last try.
    SO, I deleted the plugin as per the instructions and run a test via friendfeed, that now is showing my latest posts (it didn't before), also made a cache test via seositecheckup that says my site is not caching anything anymore (good!).
    Can you be so kind to have a look to check if you see the 2014 now?
