[Resolved] Don't know what's wrong

  • hello – I have used syndicate press on another site and it works great. just set up a new site (www.hotvegasinfo.com) and tried to set up 5 feeds

    I set them up like this

    proper URL = the correct RSS feed addy

    On my page I put this code
    [sp# feedList=all]

    I wanted to test it before inserting into theme.

    My website won’t connect and I am getting 500 errors. I am only pulling 3 articles from each.

    Any tips or guidance I can follow to try to diagnose what is wrong?

    If i disable plugin, site works fine so I guess it might be some type of conflict but I don’t know what.

  • Must be something I am doing. If I go one by one, they are working so I will just take some more time to try to figure it out. I did read all the documentation. Is there any reference to examples that i can follow that have tips on how to set up breaks and stuff.

    Hi Miz.Michele,
    Thanks for including the RSS feed publisher links. The easiest way to debug a publisher link and see what it is really providing is to put it directly into the URL address bar of a browser.

    I did this for http://www.properurl.com/category/210851/app-news?clienttype=rss

    and received a page saying it was going to redirect to: https://WWW.ZONE.EU/CATEGORY/210851/APP-NEWS?CLIENTTYPE=RSS

    But it really redirected to https://www.zone.ee/en/

    The other feed URL also redirects to https://www.zone.ee/en/

    You might want to test out the feeds in a browser prior to putting them into Syndicate Press to make sure they are real feeds and not being redirected to weird URLs that are not feeds.

    If a feed is working properly, you will see something like in your browser: http://syndicatepress.henryranch.net/feed/

    Note that SP does not support redirection of URLs, or https protocol for feed URLs.

    Thank you as always. I am now having another issue.

    I had everything set up and had certain feeds set up in the sidebar and one main news page. I got the bright idea that I wanted to take one feed out of the sidebar and put it in my main page so I added it in and now I am getting this

    /home/myusername/mysite.com/wp-content/plugins/syndicate-press/syndicate-press-plugin.php on line 324

    I don’t think it can be the feed since it was fine in my sidebar. Now I am fearful to reorganize anything else.

    What do you think is wrong and what should I do?

    I just have to tell you that after 2 hours, I decided to write and as soon as I wrote I figured it out. It was the way I had my feed list.

    I had a space after the comma 🙂

    [sp# feed11,feed02,feed03,feed01,feed05,feed14]

    Hi Miz.Michele,
    glad you figured it out. Thanks for following up with you finding.

    The [sp#] shortcode uses spaces to separate parameters, so the extra space in the feedlist messed it up.

    I’ll add a new feature to an upcoming release that checks the shortcode params and throws a useful error message rather than the script line number.

    Best regards,
    SP Developer

    I’m not so strong in shortcodes so I wanted to check with you if Im doing the right thing:

    I inserted 2 RSS in the Syndicarte press setup:

    Then I garbed [sp# feedList=all] and inserted it into the shortcode section of my homer page

    Nothing happened. Can someone help please

    Hi pavpud,
    thank you for providing the links that you were trying to use…

    The first link that you provided ‘http://www.championat.com/rssinst.html’ is not a valid rss/atom or rdf formatted news feed. Rather, it is an html page.

    The second link is also not a valid rss/atom or rdf news feed. It is an html page.

    You should find the rss news feed URL for the sites and then try again.

    Best regards,
    SP Developer
