[resolved] RSS Feed - XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity (6 posts)

    When someone tries to subscribe to my RSS feed on my site (), they get this error

    XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
    Location:
    http://feeds.feedburner.com/AudreyDao
    Line Number 2, Column 1:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    ^

    I know I have a blank space/white line in the first line, because I viewed the page source I did see that the first line is a blank space. I don't know how to get rid of it. I checked all the php files and there are no spaces so I don't understand why the blank space in the first line keeps showing up.

    I know this problem has been posted quite a number of times, but I still haven't been able to solve my problem even with the numerous solutions posted.
    I did the uninstall and install plugin one-by-one test. That failed.

    I reuploaded my theme. That failed.

    I went to this site and did what it told me to do and that failed.

    I even tried this site and that failed.

    Can anybody help me? Maybe I'm doing something wrong? It's annoying me so much and for so long. I just want this problem to be solved. Any help would be grateful. Thanks.

    I wish fix-rss-feed worked for me but it did not. Here's my feed which is broken:

    I've tried to copy and paste the same feed code from another successful site's feed. I'd appreciate any advice.

    It turns out the functions.php file had a space between the requests. I wrote about the resolution here:
