A reader using Thunderbird was having difficulty getting the RSS feed to work. The problem seems to have been on his end and was resolved without a good explanation.
But during the debugging process he validated WP's RSS feed with http://feedvalidator.org/. Feedvalidator approved the RSS feed, but issued the following recommendation: Feeds should not be served with the "text/html" media type
It does seem that application/rss+xml is now the preferred mime type.
- What can I do to change the mime type for RSS now?
- Shouldn't a code fix be made to do this for everyone?
I don't think this issue is specific to my site, but I'd be happy to post my URL if that helps. I'm using Kubrick in 2.5.
Thanks, and press on!
