    At the footer of the template what are the “Entries (RSS) and Comments(RSS)”. And how can I get them activated? Because when I click on them they go no where.

  • Well, they are probably using the feed: protocol that only FF and Safari understand…it’s not a problem with your feeds probably.

    You’ll need to give us the URL of your blog or at the very least the theme you are using, so we can set your feeds straight. Cya

    This should be easy. Go to footer.php of your theme folder…should be /wp-content/themes/default/footer.php

    Now find this:

    <a href="feed:<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>">

    Get rid of the feed: part..then repeat for the comments link.

    I am sorry but I don’t get it. What do I do to the following:

    is proudly powered by
    WordPress
    “>Entries (RSS)
    and
    “>Comments (RSS).
    <!– <?php echo $wpdb->num_queries; ?> queries. <?php timer_stop(1); ?> seconds. –>

    </div>
    </div>

    Change this:

    <a href="feed:<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>">Entries (RSS)</a>

    to this:

    <a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>">Entries (RSS)</a>

    and this:

    <a href="feed:<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>">Comments (RSS)</a>

    to this:

    <a href="<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>">Comments (RSS)</a>

    In other words, remove the “feed:” text from the href attribute.

    Thank you. It Worked.

    I have been trying to get my rrs feeds to work also. I tried doing this and it resulted in this error message when I clicked on the rrs feed link at the bottom.
    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

    My url is http://www.mental.com/julie

    At this point I am using Chinared but the feeds do not work on any template that I have or on any blogs we are hosting.
    Is there something else I should be trying?

    That link 404’s.

    Julie, I’m not sure you have a problem. If you are using Firefox without any extensions for RSS feeds, that is the message you will get when you click on a feed link. What you need to do is copy that address into a program that parses RSS feeds, or get an extension for Firefox such as Sage that will do it. If you use Thunderbird for email, instructions are here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/RSS_basics_(Thunderbird)
    If you use bloglines, just copy the feed address into the box provided after you’ve clicked the Add tab.

    I am new to WordPress and having problems with my RSS too. My blog is at http: //www.webaccessibility.biz/blog. Is there something I need to change?

    Glenda,

    Go into your theme folder /wp-content/themes/*yourtheme*/ (it looks like you’re using the classic theme) and find sidebar.php … open it

    Look under Meta, and there a couple of <li> that have <a href="feed:<?php..... in them. You just want to get rid of the feed: bit. You can just do a search for this, and replace it with what is below:


    <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('Syndicate this site using RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('<abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a></li>
    <li><a href="feed:<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('The latest comments to all posts in RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('Comments <abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a></li>

    and change them to

    <li><a href="feed:<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('Syndicate this site using RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('<abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a></li>
    <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('The latest comments to all posts in RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('Comments <abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a></li>

    Basically, you just get rid of the “feed:” at the beginning of the links.

    Thanks, that worked! I am assuming people can now add rss to their readers? How would have “feed” gotten in to the code?

    Cheers,
    Glenda

    Thanks moshu,

    I am still learning the ropes of wp. I just realized people can register for my blog. Not too sure what that is about or if I want /need that.

    I’m using the New years Theme at blog.moosewatch.com. How do I set up Firefox for comments. I currently get a message saying the protocol isn’t associated with any program.
