[resolved] RSS problem (19 posts)

    I'm new at WordPress. I don't even know how to get to the "code" view of the main page, http://www.altfg.com/blog, so I can make changes to the page's formatting. . .

    Now, one thing at a time:

    I'm having problems with the RSS feed. When I click on the link at the bottom of the page, I get a pop-up box that says "the address type is unknown or unsupported." The same thing happens with the Comments link.

    The RSS link reads:

    feed:http://www.altfg.com/blog/?feed=rss2

    What is the problem? And how can I fix it?

    And while I'm at it. . .

    How can I add a "Subscribe to AltFG's RSS Feed" (once I get it to work, of course) link to the main page, one that would work both for text postings and podcasts?

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    The problem is the "feed:" in front of the url. It needs to be removed.

    To do that, you'll need to edit the correct template file, which in your case is the Footer file. These links will help.

    Thanks for the tips. I've deleted the "feed:" from both links. The "not found" pop-up is gone.

    The problem now is that nothing happens when I click on the RSS links for the entries or the comments. What needs to be done for the RSS links to work?

    Thanks again.

    You've hit a bug in 1.5.1. Upgrade to the most recent version of WordPress, which will resolve it.

  11. That would be a bug in WordPress v1.5.1. Please upgrade to WordPress v1.5.1.3.

    ::Does "Kafkaesquí" mean "speed"?::

    Geez. . . Pardon all the repeat postings. I thought that the message hadn't been sent. . .

    And thanks for the quick response. I'm assuming the info about v1.5.1.3. is on the WordPress main page. I'll look for it.

  13. WordPress v1.5.1.3 can be obtained here: http://wordpress.org/download/

    Follow the upgrading instructions here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress#Overview

    Thanks for the link. It looks like a long process, so I'd better handle that tomorrow. It's almost 1 am here.

    Thanks again for all your help.

  15. It should only take about 5 minutes at the least and 15 minutes at the most.

    Thanks again for the response. I've been doing the uploading. So far so good. BUT. . . when I get to the wp-content folder, I'm a little confused. . .

    This is what the wp directions say:

    NOTE: If you did not delete the wp-content folder, do NOT upload the new one.
    The wp-content folder holds your WordPress Themes and Plugins. These should remain. Upload everything else first, then upload only those WordPress files that new or changed to your new wp-content folder. Overwrite any old versions of default plugins with the new ones.

    Well, I didn't delete since I was told NOT to. Now, what does it mean, "then upload only those WordPress files that new or changed to your new wp-content folder"? How will I know which files WordPress has changed/updated? What about the "overwrite any old versions. . ."? Why can't I just then upload the wp-content folder in toto?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  17. Don't delete /wp-content/ and don't upload a new copy of /wp-content/. You don't have to, and deleting /wp-content/ would delete all of your plugins and theme customizations too.
