RSS not working (4 posts)

    It's been called to my attention that my RSS feed is not working. I am thinking that it has never worked and I was unaware of it.

    Here's my address:
    http://www.karensblog.com (which is a subdomain of my site) ... the actual address is:
    http://www.karenwinters.com/kblog

    I have gone to feed validator and get messages that tell me something is wrong but I'm not a programmer so I haven't tampered with the script. I'm hoping there's just a setting wrong somewhere.

    Validator tells me that feeds should not be served with the 'foo' media type, and that they are getting an unexpected MIME type ... I am reading the validator explanation but I am clueless how to practically solve it.

    I just did a basic installation and an upgrade to 1.5.2. I have added no plugins, so I don't know what the problem is.

    I notice that when I click on the RSS button in the url window that my feed takes this form:

    feed://karenwinters.com/kblog/feed/atom/

    But the feeds from most other people's sites end in atom.xml
    This was the same in 1.5.1 - it's not an upgrade issue.

    So I don't know why my feed is different and apparently wrong for most newsreaders.
    Help, please.

    Hey Mac, Yep, I checked some time ago and the op must have "searched second" and found the answer. You are correctly searching - but do a bit more before you resurrect "old" threads, there's an answer out there for you about removing "feed:" should you so choose.
