Support » Fixing WordPress » Cannot get RSS on my site working

  • My log is here: I downloaded the latest version and I tried the patched file but I can’t get my RSS working.
    Should I just wait for the next version? I searched this site but I can’t find the solution. I tried altering the wp-blog-header.php and it may seem stupid but the lines I need are not in there.

  • Your feed works fine in SharpReader which is the RSS Reader program I use.

    How are you testing your feed?


    Oops ehm….I am just clicking on the rss link on the site in my Internet Explorer. I don’t know a lot about rss. Is that not correct?

    It’s correct to a point..but when you click on that link, it essentially spews out XML’ized version of your posts/content.

    You can see what I mean by clicking on this link on your website. It is basically what you have on there EXCEPT, I’ve removed the “feed:” before the link.

    The way you go about reading RSS is with an RSS Reader. You can get a standalone version or you can use a browser like Firefox to look at them.

    Sharpreader is the program I use. You can give that a shot or try others..

    Cypher: When I click on the url in your answer I can see the rss. But when I try to open it in my log I get this link: feed: In the browser, the word “feed” is put before the url.

    The word “feed” is being added by your theme. That’s completely fine, in SOME cases people will have the mime-type “feed:” attached to their favorite new reader and it will load up your RSS feed no problem.

    Very seldom do you look at the contents of a RSS feed directly in your browser as you can’t do much with the XML output.

    So I wouldn’t worry about it, use Firefox or a RSS reader and point it to the full feed:http://blah.blah.blah line you’ll see it work.
