    WordPress RSS Validation Issues

    I am trying to get this fixed and keep running into issues with feedburner. The error is:

    error on line 679 at column 67: Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding !
    Bytes: 0x05 0x20 0x66 0x6F

    The site link and the feed link are below. This uses a Themify theme - Suco.

    http://www.mrexcel.com/learnexcel/ and
    http://www.mrexcel.com/learnexcel/feed/

    Any ideas on this?

    Your feed works fine, chrome-extension://nlbjncdgjeocebhnmkbbbdekmmmcbfjd/subscribe.html?http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mrexcel.com%2Flearnexcel%2Ffeed%2F (I'll try to get you a url that doesn't require an extension.)

    You have a plugin or theme that has a problem.

    Have you tried: flushing any caching plugins you might be running, as well as server and/or browser caches.

    deactivating all plugins (yes, all) to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s). If you can't get into your admin dashboard, try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin (read "How to deactivate all plugins when you can't log in to wp-admin" if you need help). Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems. Also remember to deactivate any plugins in the mu-plugins folder. The easiest way is to rename that folder to mu-plugins-old

    switching to the Twenty Fourteen theme to rule out any theme-specific problems. If you can't log in to change themes, you can remove the theme folders via FTP so the only one is twentyfourteen. That will force your site to use it.

    manually upgrading. When all else fails, download a fresh copy of the latest.zip file of 3.5 (top right on this page) to your computer, and use that to copy up. You may need to delete the wp-admin and wp-includes folders on your server. Read the Manual Update directions first.

    Hi,

    I want to set up an RSS feed on the blog page only of my site. I am trying to set it up with Mail Chimp but every url I try in Mail Chimp I get a message saying that it's invalid or doesn't exist. I've tried:
    http://mydomain.com/feed
    http://my domain.com/blog
    http://my domain.com/blog/
    http://my domain.com/blog/feed
    http://my domain.com/blog/feed/rss
    http://mydomain.com/feed/rss

    Can anyone help me with what I'm doing wrong please?

    Thanks.
