I'm so mixed up... This is my 2nd wordpress installation...
Last one went well and now I am on to #2.
The last one was in root of other domain but this time in subfolder /newsblog/ and the rss feed will not validate.
1st off I am miffed at why in this update 188.8.131.52 they didn't repair the default footer template so it has correct syntax for the feed:URL - that's a big NO NO.
This is the 2nd time I got stuck on that... what program supports feed: in the URL? None that I know of. Big waste of time on that.
So I finally figure out if I change the footer template and remove feed: from the URL I can get the rss to work BUT hey - it's basically an empy rss file... it doesn't show the entiries I add at my blog.
Here is the feed URL that shows no entries:
It looks like a feed but is empty
We couldn't find the RSS file you asked for
So I try a new URL for the RSS feed at:
On my other wordpress blog this works as rss feed...
Now I can see the entries listed and it looks kosher but myyahoo still won't accept .
Then I try to validate...
Server returned HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Can someone help me to get my RSS feed so it validates and I can add to myyahoo...
Must have something to do with the root folder versus /newsblog/ which is where my latest install.
Blog URL is:
RSS Links are at the bottom.
Otherwise I am thrilled with wordpres sbut this kind of runaround should be happening... RSS should work with no code writing on a users part, right? That kind of ruins the 5 minute install concept when you have to hunt for fixes to get RSS to work.
