iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security)
[resolved] Better WP Security Killed My RSS Feed (6 posts)

    I've started using Better WP Security on two sites, one established and one brand new and on both sites, the RSS feed has gone down as soon as I activate the plugin.

    In particular, it's killed my podcast feed, meaning I'm no longer synching with iTunes and the other directories.

    I run both sites using a Solostream Premium Theme and have virtually all of the settings in the plugin turned on. I've been through the tweaks one by one and yet the feed still won't work.

    Any clues please?

    The RSS feed in question is http://www.adventuresininternetmarketing.net/feed/

    The podcast feed should be:

    When I try and load the podcast feed I get:

    Error 6 (net::ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND): The file or directory could not be found.

    OK, I've removed the plugin and then re-installed it, this time just using the basic protection settings. Seems to have solved the RSS problem although it isn't providing as much protection.

    Right, I've found a combination of the basic and advanced features that keeps both the RSS and the podcast feed.

  5. Hello,

    I hope to have a better way to list plugin issues with individual features in the near future. Thanks for the report. Do you know which features were causing the issue?
