The problem I am having is when I try to validate my feed, an error occurs which says:
<unknown>:2:0: xml declaration not at start of external entity
An errant white space is being added on line one so the xml is invalid and the feed won't work.
Well, I haven't heard anything yet and have spent some significant time on the IRC chan trying to get help. Podz and ryanduff were very helpful, but did not know what the problem was. Here is what I have tried:
-reuploaded wp-includes and wp-admin folders
-Added AddDefaultCharset to .htaccess file
-Played around with UTF-8 and US-ASCII settings in the wp control panel, options, reading tab.
-reuploaded all of the rss, rss2, atom, and rdf files with new, clean files.
I think that is about it. I probably have done other things but just can't think of it right now. If there is anyone out there who has seen this problem and has some idea of what I could do, please let me know.
