[resolved] Atom feed error: 'obsolete namespace' (3 posts)

    My RSS2 feed validated fine, but my attempt to validate the Atom feed turned up multiple errors. The first one reads "This feed uses an obsolete namespace" followed by the following:

    &lt?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?&gt&ltfeed version="0.3"

    There's a little red caret under the &lt before 'feed'

    I'm very new to this, and I'd appreciate if someone could please tell me how to fix this, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's because the Atom script has not yet been updated to support Atom 1.0. It should still work in syndication readers that support Atom 0.3 (pretty much all), but will fail validation on the w3 site.

    Nevertheless, you can find an update to Atom 1.0 for the wp-atom.php script here:

    Wow, that fixed practically all of the errors!

    Thanks! :)
