RSS Problem in 1.5 (10 posts)

    Hi,

    I am unable to get an RSS feed in bloglines and other readers to my site. I've read the posts here about the problem (http://wordpress.org/support/topic.php?id=24687) and I've removed the "feed:" from the feed information, but I still can't seem to subscribe. Can anyone walk me through how to fix this? I very much appreciate your help. My site is http://www.arrington.us (feed link is in the footer). I am not very technical at all - removing the "feed:" text was about as far as I can go on my own, and I really want to make this work! Thank you.

    1. Try this as your rss link:

    http://www.arrington.us/index.php?feed=rss2

    It's a bug, and this should do as a workaround. See this for a possible fix:

    2. If you're going to provide your feed with the full text of your posts, make sure any media files you link to are not using relative links:

    http://www.feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.arrington.us%2Findex.php%3Ffeed%3Drss2

  3. There are steps to fix this bug. See this bug report:

    This bug is being compounded by problems at Bloglines. Bloglines has failed to update numerous feeds--WordPress generated or otherwise--over the last few days. They're supposedly working on it, so keep that in mind after you've applied the WordPress specific fixes listed above.

    Yes, I now notice bloglines is not updating the feed at all, or wordpress isn't. Is this something I can fix or do I need to just wait it out?

    Although I am experiencing the same problems as have been covered in several posts here, the one that gets me is:

    I have a site using drupal and when adding news feeds with the aggregator from my wordpress 1.5 sites only one feed shows up.

    When adding a feed from one of my free blog client sites using WPMU all of the feeds show up.

    You can see what I mean at http://gnuker.com

    How can I get all the feeds to show up from WP 1.5 Strayhorn like with WPMU?

    Kewl. I was and am the last to post to this.

    Am I to understand this issue isn't or won't be addressed and fixed?

    Pahleezze, won't someone fix this?

  10. If you want to apply the patch, then it has been resolved and fixed.

    Or, you could wait for WP v1.5.1, which will be shipping with this fix and plenty of others.
