    I recently placed rss subscription buttons (eg. newsgator, my yahoo, technorati, bloglines, etc)on my side nav and most of them do not work. When I try subscribing, I get the following types of messages:
    My yahoo - We couldn't find the RSS file you asked for

    bloglines - No feeds were found. Please verify that the website publishes an RSS feed.

    rojo- no feeds found

    technorati, my google, google, bogablog all work fine

    When I when to the feed url: it asked for a password

    When I used feedvalidator, I got the following:
    Server returned HTTP Error 401: Authorization Required
    HTTP Error Explanation: Your feed couldn't be validated because there was a problem downloading it from the web server. This usually means that the URL was wrong, or that permissions on the server don't allow us to fetch that file. The error shows the message that the server sent, which may help.

    http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.multiculturaladvantage.net%2Fdiversity%2Ffeed%2F%3Fhttp_auth%3Dyes

    Feed URL: http://www.multiculturaladvantage.net/diversity/feed/?http_auth=yes

    Can anyone help? Thanks

    This is THE validator:
    http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.multiculturaladvantage.net%2Fdiversity%2Ffeed%2F

    and check your code: you shouldn't have anything AFTER the closing </body> tag.

    Hi Moshu:
    Thanks for responding so quickly. While I brave the code, I'm no programmer. I can not find the invalid code referenced. What file should I be editing.

    1. Only you know in which file did you place the creative commons license - find it, correct it.
    2. To change the RSS > to Rss: open the wp-rss2.php file.

    BTW, next to each error there is a link "help" - did you click on any of them???

    don't mean to sound like an idiot. I probbly have no business mesing with the code. I admit, I do not know what 1. I am doing. its been trial and LOTS of error. :) I removed the creative commons file while trouble shooting a few dys ago, because it was the only thing that I thought could be interfering with the rss feed. It had been working before I enabled it. I have been going through pages trying to see where code could be. I tried to reverse install. i guess I will have to reinstall to figure out wwhere it is placing the code.

    2. this is what I wanted to know. I knew there was an rss file, but I was looking for rss.php or rss.php. I did not know to look for the wp prefix. Additionally, I di not know whether it was rss or rss2.

    3. When I saw creative commons errors ll over the validator output, I got excited and when looking for the rss file and to double check that I had unistalled the cretive commons pugin. I will, however use them as a reference.

    Thanks again

    Tracey
