[resolved] RSS link not working? (5 posts)

    Hello, I'm running a podcast (using the podpress plug-in) and I'm having problems with my RSS feed.

    The url is http://gameindustrynewscast.com

    This tells me the RSS is valid:
    http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http://gameindustrynewscast.com/feed/

    But when I try to add it to a reader (Google Reader,) I get an error, "The feed being requested cannot be found." and "(title unknown)".

    When I try to add the url in the podpress settings (http://gameindustrynewscast.com/?feed=podcast ) it works fine.

    The site's feed link (http://gameindustrynewscast.com ) not working was just brought up to me by someone trying to subscribe. Anyone have an ida of where I should look to fix this?

    I don't know why the Google reader has such problems with feed.

    But as you know the feed is valid and I could subscribe to the feeds with different RSS reader programs like RSS Owl, Mozilla Thunderbird and iTunes without any problems. Further more i could subscribe via the iTunes store.

    Have you tried to subscribe to the feed with the google reader on different days and times of the day? Maybe your server was a little bit slow at one day. Or do you block search engines off your blog with this privacy setting of WP?
    (But these are probably wild guesses.)

    Regards,
    Tim

    Yesterday I couldn't get it working on any site, but I just tried it again and it's working in the sites you mentioned, others, and in Google Reader!

    I suppose it may well have been server speed problems with it timing out... But thanks Tim, I appreciate your commenting!

    If you're still bored, though, Google Reader (and only it, that I see,) still gives me "(title unknown)" even thought it displays the correct name in the subscriptions list. Have I forgotten to fill out something?

    (I'll let this linger a few hours before I mark it resolved, but I shall.)

    That's good to read!

    with regard to the unknown title: I guess that this will also be okay in the next 24 hours (resp. when the reader refreshes the content of the content). The title of element is in each of the above mentioned RSS feeds and it is filled with the name of your blog:

    <title>Game Industry Newscast</title>

    (I would say that you have not forgotten to fill out an input field.)
