RSS Validation Error (21 posts)

    I am running WordPress 2.0.4, using the Semilogic Minimalist theme.

    I have searched the forums and the solutions to this problem offered here do not work.I am a PHP novice.
    Whenever I try to activate my rss feed in IE 7.0 I get this error:

    End tag 'dc:creator' does not match the start tag 'ADMINNICENAME'.
    Line: 51 Character: 32

    <dc:creator><ADMINNICENAME></dc:creator>

    The admin name has been changed and a nickname assigned. All of the posts are assigned an author. This problem doesn't seem to fit any of the stock answers here.

    Would you be willing to share a link to your blog?

    This happens when I link to the feed at:

    http://tarondesigns.com/blog/wp-rss2.php

    The XML page cannot be displayed
    Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

    <dc:creator><ADMINNICENAME></dc:creator>
    -------------------------------^

    I'm having exactly the same issue (IE6) and firefox doesn't even display the feed. It was doing that with WordPress 2.0.4 on my first install today and it didn't resolved itself upon upgrading to 2.0.5
    I am using Bluehost and I have a couple blogs that I haven't upgraded and are still at 2.0.1 and they are fine, they show the feed.

    My blog link is: http://tarondesigns.com/blog/

    One of the older blog links that work is: http://kari.untodeep.com

    Why do the feeds end with [...]
    And how do I get rid of that because I have an RSS loader in flash that picks those up and it doesn't look that great?

    Because you're looking at them in FireFox 2, if I had to guess.

    right click on the page and view source.

    They show up in IE6 as well here is an example:

    - <description>
    - <![CDATA[ As new technologies are introduced and embraced on the web I’m often delighted and elated. It continues to further the internet’s purpose and continually justifies it’s existence. If it somehow collapsed tomorrow could we get by? I would arguably say yes (not without a huge shift of jobs and lives - but hey we did [...]
    ]]>

    Visit Options -> Reading and check out the options in the Syndication section.

    This is my only real options on that page and I don't see anything pertinent.

    Syndication Feeds
    Show the most recent: "10" posts
    For each article, show: Full text
    Summary
    Encoding for pages and feeds:
    The character encoding you write your blog in (UTF-8 is recommended)

    Is it hard coded in and so could I just take it out of the code?

    "For each article, show:" is the one you want to change to Full Text instead of Summary.

    At least, that's my guess as I've not actually seen your feed...

    I have it set to "Full Text" so I changed it to summary and then back again no change though. I did notice the code though is giving giving the <description> tag and then the full text in <content:encoded>. I see what need to be done but I don't know how to do it when the option is picked already.

    You want the full text in <content:encoded>, so it sounds like things are working as expected/desired.

    The link to my blog is: http://stopannexationnow.com/presblog/

    I have full text chosen
    every post has an assigned author with a nicname.
    I only get the error in IE 7 when I click the sidebar RSS feed button ot the IE 7 RSS Button at the top.

    I get an xtml page in IE 6

    @xtime:

    The javascript in your feed is distressing.
    window.document.getElementById('post-9').parentNode.className += ' adhesive_post';

    are you running an old version of the Adhesive plugin? If you are running adhesive, does your feed look better if you temporarily disable it?

    Disabling the adhesive plug-in did the trick. I would have never put that together without your help.

    Thank you.

    I hope you will indulge one more question on this topic. I had Adhesive 3.2 installed. That appears to be the last available version. I went to the creators website and found no download for it. Has it been withdrawn?

    That was a very useful tool.

    @xtime: Do a quick search here for it. Author's site blewup a while back and I don't think he's completely recovered. The search will turn up some alternative links for it.

    Thank you. I searched and found several downloads From Version2 to 3.2 and dead ends.

    Does anybody know if Adhesive 3.2 is the latest version? Because that is the version that is screwing up my RSS feed and if that is the latest version them I am hosed on Adhesive because the RSS is more important.

    Maybe this alternative would work? It's a bit more complex/flexible...

    HandySolo is a genius.

    Thanks Handy. My RSS feed was broken too until I read this thread!
