RSS FEED NOT WORKING (5 posts)

    HI,

    I Need some help please. I have two issues:

    my site is http://www.Lancesview.com

    1) I have put the default RSS widget on my right sidebar to show feeds from my site. I have entered in my "feedburner" address for the feed. I have 2 post so far but my feed reader widget is only showing 1 feed and I have no idea why or how to fix it. I tried to remove it and reinstall it, but that did not help.

    2) I can't figure out how to put a simple box on my sidebar (or a drop down menu) that will allow a reader to quickly and easily apply to my post feeds and my comments feeds.

    Please help - getting very frustrated.

    Thanks

    Lance

    This is my Sidebar.php file code"

    <!-- RIGHT SIDEBAR -->

    <div id="sidebar-right">

    </div>

    </div>

    <!-- LEFT SIDEBAR -->

    <div id="sidebar-left">

      <?php if ( function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar('Sidebar 1') ) : else : ?>

    • <h2><?php _e('Recent Posts','emerald_stretch'); ?></h2>

        <?php get_archives('postbypost', 10); ?>
    • <h2><?php _e('Blogroll','emerald_stretch'); ?></h2>

        <?php get_links(-1, '
      • ', '
      • ', ' - '); ?>
    • <?php include_once (TEMPLATEPATH."/_linkads_left.php"); ?>

      <?php endif; ?>

    </div>

    1. You currently have 2 posts in your WP feed. If Feedburner or the reader widget is only showing 1, then the fault lies with them - not WP. That said, it might take a while for them to update, so leave it for a day and see what happens.

    2. You're already display a link to your feedburner feed. It's the RSS icon in your sidebar.

    Hi esmi,

    Thanks a lot for your help

    1) What do you mean I have 2 posts in my wp feed? Where can I see that? When I look at my RSS feed I set up in the RSS widget on my sidebar I only see one.

    2) People who have never seen an RSS feed would not know to click on the orange symbol in my sidebar. Is there something separate I can add that says something like "Click here to get RSS feed"? I would also like something that will show the posts and comments separately if possible.

    I really don't think it should take a day to populate. It has already been about 8 hours.

    Ok - I got rid of the rss widget and I'm just using the "recent posts" widget - good enough.
    And I found a plugin for the rss icon that says subscribe next to it.
    thanks
