[resolved] RSS feed works and doesn't work (6 posts)

    My "normal" WP feed link doesn't work-

    http://www.southerncommunityguide.com/press/feed/

    however, this link does work-

    http://southerncommunityguide.com/press/?feed=rss2

    Any idea what the problem could be? This is resulting in the feed icon in the browser pointing to the first one but it doesn't work. I found the 2nd one while browsing for an answer to my problem in another post.

    Thanks.

    None of your permalinks work either:

    Do you have the .htaccess file? Are you running Apache?

    Well, you can't use that style of permalink then. Switch the permalink settings back to "Default".

    You know, I'm so used to running WP on Apache I didn't even consider that htaccess wouldn't work on IIS. Doh! Thanks!

    If you don't bother paying a few bucks, you can use iis mod-rewrite or isapi-rewrite. Both enable .htaccess support on iis. One of the vendors has a useful setup guide:
