Support » Fixing WordPress » Feed and IE7: the feed icon does not lit up!

  • Resolved baudesign


    Hello everyone,

    My new WordPress blog is up and running since a few days ago. I am quite happy with it, and want to congratulate the whole WordPress team for their excellent script. A real tour de force.

    Now, I experience a bug (or is it?). My RSS feed is working fine: (I use permalinks).

    My code in the template is this:

    <div id="rss"><a>"><img src="" alt="RSS2" width="24" height="24" border="0" /></a></div>

    With IE7 betâ, the feed icon does not lit up, and I wonder why. This means that the browser does not notice the feed.

    Is there something I do not understand here? How can I make this work so that people will be able to subscribe on the fly without clicking on my feed icon?

  • Is the feed link in the header file?

    To maerk’s point: Add some code along these lines to your header.php (or wherever your <head> content is):

    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="text/xml" title="RSS .92" href="<?php bloginfo('rss_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Atom 0.3" href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>" />

    Thanks you gentlemen. HandySolo, you code worked flawlessly. I had nothing in my header concerning RSS.

    Again, thanks for your support.
