    Hi All,

    I set up a WordPress Blog, and everything EXCEPT the RSS feed is working. I keep getting this message with the RSS feed, and my feed is not being recognized.
    This page contains the following errors:

    error on line 2 at column 6: XML declaration allowed only at the start of the document
    Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.


    I have tried to located the white space and been through my files . I tried the generic WordPress Twenty11 and Twenty20 themes too with the same outcome. I tried two patches, Fix RSS Feeds Plug in etc. I also tried deactivating the plugins. But I keep getting errors.

    Cleared Cache. Just not sure anymore what to do. Does anyone have any recommendations? Do other have this problem?

    Thanks and warm regards,
