Support » Plugin: WP Mail Logging » Dashboard Error: A feed could not be found at ``

  • Fetch Designs


    The error is appearing twice in our logs each time the admin dashboard is visited. Can you please resolve this?

    PHP Notice: A feed could not be found at; the status code is 404 and content-type is text/html in wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 1728

    As a workaround, I’ve added the following to my theme’s functions.php file…

     * Remove dashboard items
    function fetchDeclutterDashboard()
        global $wp_meta_boxes;
        // Broken feed from wp-mail-logging plugin
    add_action('wp_dashboard_setup', 'fetchDeclutterDashboard');

    I’m getting the same error over here. Any update on getting it resolved?



    In case someone comes here from Google…
    In my case, the reason for this error was that my theme included an old version of the Redux framework which pointed to deprecated domain.


    1. Ask your theme developer to upgrade Redux framework.
    2. Install Redux framework plugin to override the old version in your theme.
    3. Add below code to your functions.php to disable Redux Dashboard Widget:
      // Remove dashboard widget
      function redux_remove_dashboard_widget() {
          remove_meta_box( 'redux_dashboard_widget', 'dashboard', 'side' );
      add_action( 'wp_dashboard_setup', 'redux_remove_dashboard_widget', 100 );

    @musosoft Thanks for your reply on this. Unfortunately, it’s not the same issue for me. I deactivated all plugins and switched to a default theme. Only plugin activated was the WP Mail Logging plugin and the error in the dashboard remains.

    Seems there is something out of date with the plugin itself.

    @musosoft Your suggestion on installing the redux plugin did work for me, however it would be nice to not have an extra plugin just for this. This plugin seems to be the only one utilizing this at this time in my case.

    I suppose it is a good temporary fix though. Thanks for the suggestion!

    @eli0086 If it is no longer possible to receive theme updates and the use of an additional plugin seems a bit overdosed either, you may hardcode it out.

    1. Search for the Redux folder within your theme.
    2. Navigate to “core” subfolder.
    3. Open “dashboard.php”.
    4. Search for “public function redux_dashboard_widget()” function.
    5. Comment out everything WITHIN the function like so:

    public function redux_dashboard_widget() {
    	echo '<div class="rss-widget">';
    		 'url'          => '',
    		 'title'        => 'REDUX_NEWS',
    		 'items'        => 3,
    		 'show_summary' => 1,
    		 'show_author'  => 0,
    		 'show_date'    => 1
    	echo '</div>';

    6. Optional: comment out everything within “public function __construct ()” and “public function add_redux_dashboard()” function
    7. Alternatively (and fastest), comment out the following line at the end:
    // new reduxDashboardWidget();

    The code in the plugin refers to a non-existing addresses and others Following them gives error 404. and have self-signed expired SSL certificates. “Error RSS: WP HTTP Error: cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired”

    I just deleted all the code, referring to this widget, which I do not need.
    Maybe all code refering to reduxframework should be deleted.
