[resolved] Setting up my RSS (3 posts)

    Hi guys,

    I am trying to set up my RSS feed but when I check it on feedvalidator, I get a confusing message about "text/html" media type. Could someone please help? As was recommended, I replaced "text/html" with "application/rss+xml" in my wp-rss.php file. Can you tell I'm new to this? Any help is much appreciated.

    Here is my website: http://www.finktank3000.com/wordpress

    Here is the feed I am trying to activate: http://www.finktank3000.com/wordpress/wp-rss.php

    I have been through almost all of the posted topics and none of them seem to be related to my problem. If in fact, the problem has been addressed, my apologies in advance.

    You're running 1.5, and the issue you're experiencing is a bug that was resolved in later versions. I'd recommend upgrading as soon as possible, but until then you can use this as your feed url:

    Thanks. I've put off the upgrade because my friend did a lot of retooling of the files like setting up a second toolbar etc. I don't trust myself to do it on my own. But my RSS feed works now and I thank you!
