Support » Fixing WordPress » Bluehost, Bloglines, and feeds

  • Resolved superjux



    In the past, I had absolutely no problems with my readers being able to use Bloglines to view my feeds. However, since switching to Bluehost for hosting, my feeds do not show as updated in Bloglines. They do however, show as updated in other readers.

    On a side note, I tried creating a new feed using Feedburner. Bloglines showed the feed as updated once. However since then, it has not updated.

    Any ideas? I am working with Bluehost support on this, but at this time, they are still unable to fix it.

  • If you manually look at your feed (say by clicking your RSS link) do you see the new articles in it? If so, then it’s not a WP or BlueHost issue, but something potentially with BlogLines.

    As an aside, I’ve been using BlogLines for quite some time and have noticed lately that they DO seem to be having some issues with some feeds that don’t update for days, then I’ll suddenly get 3 days of content showing up…

    Yes, if I look at the RSS link, it is current.

    Now the feedburner rss feed works in Bloglines, but the original one ( still will not update in Bloglines. In fact, it has not updated since the switch to Bluehost.


    Just for grins, maybe Bloglines would like the older version of the feed:

    FeedBurner kind of manages that for you though — it’ll give the rss, rss2 or atom feed based on what the client requests. Personally, I’d probably just stick with FeedBurner and call it good. 😉

    Weird. It likes too. Why won’t it take the feed ( that most of my readers are subscribed to though?

    This is so frustrating.

    the ?feed=rss is an older RSS version. your /feed/ gives it the same as ?feed=rss2 which perhaps bloglines doesn’t handle so well (at a guess).

    But it handled it well BEFORE I switched hosting companies…that is what makes it so odd.

    When you switched hosting, did you perhaps switch to the newer version of WordPress? That’d be my silly wild guess at any rate.

    Nope. In fact, I just copied all of my files in my public_html directory over to my new account.
