What the crap (RSS Validation) (8 posts)

    Alright, so my RSS feed shows up blank (http://www.midnightshift.customspacelayouts.com/feed/),
    but it's there... If you view the source you'll see part of my page loaded into it, which is causing it to not validate. I've determined that my header.php file is being included, but I have no idea why. It's also a custom theme as well.

    At first I thought it was the blank line problem (http://validator.w3.org/feed/docs/error/WPBlankLine.html), but now I believe that's not the case...

    A definite fix is needed, but any information that will shed light on the situation is welcome! :)

    Thank you in advance.

    Switching themes does not solve this problem.

    The feed works fine if you view it via

    I'm having the same problem. I noticed you seem to have this working now. How did you fix it?

    My blog is at: http://www.ears-peeled.com/blog.php

    Feed Validator produces an XML parsing error, ‘junk after document element’, for http://www.ears-peeled.com/blog.php?feed=rss2

    But these links are OK:


    Is it possible to get my blog to link to these addresses instead?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is probably obvious to most people, but in case anyone else has the same problem, you can add a different feed link to your template file containing the sidebar, after the last < /ul >.
