    i have a blog hosted at bluehost (http://www.incerteza.org/blog/) and the dashboard widget 'Other WordPress News' dont work, if i try to configure it it show this error:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 370875 bytes) in /home1/incertez/public_html/blog/wp-includes/functions.php on line 272

    i have just instaled another blog (http://carol.incerteza.org/blog/) at the same server and same domain and the 'Other WordPress News' works just fine, any ideia?

    And I've got my "Other WordPress News" not displaying anything, but if I select [configure], then the RSS field is pre-filled with this:

    Error: could not find an RSS or ATOM feed at that URL.

    Which is weird, as I've not put anything in there for it to reject.

    …help?

    @mschertel: Increase the memory_limit in your php.ini file. If you don't have one, you can install one through the php config in the cPanel.

    @iamiam: Try filling the RSS field with: http://planet.wordpress.org/feed/
    If that doesn't work you may be missing something in your wp-admin and something may need to be uploaded again.

    @mschertel: I forgot to mention that the php.ini is not recursive so you need to put the memory_limit-edited version in the directories which need that php.ini. In this example you would need it in public_html/blog/wp-includes. You may also need it in the public_html/blog/ folder

    @ BernardBorealis

    Sorry, no dice. I inserted the link (and had the same thing suddenly drop down as an option to select... which I'd never inserted before... so *that's* weird), selected [update] (or "enter", or whatever the button that isn't "cancel" or "close" says) and got the same result: no feed information, and the 'configure' panel when selected again says the plug-in could not find an RSS or ATOM feed at that URL.

    Dang.

    I feel so out of touch with WordPress…

    I'm having the same problem as iamiam.

    It worked when I first upgraded to 2.7 then it just quit.

    Yup. Same behaviour pattern as me. Self-hosted, used the Release Candidates until 2.7 was released officially (as Coltrane... when will we see a 'Mobley', Matt??) and all good initially I think, then… [pfffft]

    [sobs] How will I know what's happening n the World of WordPress? [sniff] I'm so lonely! [weeps uncontrollably]

    Hi,

    I was having the same issue. Try changing the RSS feed to:
    http://lorelle.wordpress.com/feed/

    Seemed to work for me.

    prackley, well that works but that just gives me the feed for lorelle's website. Maybe its just an issue with this feed? http://planet.wordpress.org/feed/

    Arcater,

    I'm not sure, but I think they may have changed the link.

    1) If you use your browser and try to go to http://planet.wordpress.org/feed/

    you get an error stating the page does not exist.

    2) If you go to http://planet.wordpress.org and copy the RSS feed address from that page, it actually points to:
    http://lorelle.wordpress.com/feed

    I don't get error with the feed http://planet.wordpress.org/feed/ in my browser (Fire Fox) and that same feed works fine for me in Google Reader.

    You're right, I swear I was getting an error, but now I'm not -- And I was also mistaken about the http://lorelle.wordpress.org/feed being the link from the main page.

    So thank you for the follow up and please ignore my earlier posts, I thought I was onto something there...

    JOY! The feed is functioning again! Once more I feel in touch with the World of WordPress!

    http://lorelle.wordpress.com/feed/ worked for me. I'm still not getting my stats graph, though. :(

    I am having the same problem since the update to 2.7. "Other WordPress News" feed will not load. Whenever I try to configure with the feed url it shows message: "Error: could not find an RSS or ATOM feed at that URL."

    Will not work with any browser I've tried: Safari, Firefox, Opera. The http://loreel.wordpress.com/feed/ will not load either.

    One of the founder of Nike and Track & Field coach Bill Bowerman has ever said that a pair of good sports shoes must be light, comfortable, hard-wearing and inexpensive.”. This weekend, I will ask many HongKong men to do the sports test—Shopping with women, to see how perfect the Shox 2:40 is!!
