    I am trying to syndicate my feed. First I tried to validate it and it returned this error. I am wondering what is happening and why? Also how can I fix it so that I am able to syndicate.

    Sorry

    This feed does not validate.

    Your blog is borked. It isn’t generating anything resembling a valid feed. What version of WP are you using?

    Very broken 🙂

    Have you tried to edit the wp-rss2.php file at all ?

    have not toucned the file and I wanted to ask question before I just went on making them worse! I didn’t do anything this time though.

    Try disabling all active plugins and check the feed again.

    There are only three plugins and those are hellodolly, markdown and textile1 and they are all decativated already.

    I would delete the wp-rss2.php file and reupload a new one ?

    ok im going to try that

    not helping, the reuploading of the file. I still get the same not valid message. Also when I click on the link for the rss feed from my blog it says Feed is not a registered protocol. But I suppose those are two separate issues?

    Same problem here, in Safari (on Mac), FireFox (on Win & Mac), IE (Win) and Netscape (Win)… the feed is considered invallid. Never touched the rss files whatsoever.

    Check for excess white space on line 261 of wp-blog-header.php.

    I did and it still doesn’t work also I uploaded another wp-blog-header.php from another of my installs (that works) but I keep getting that same message about line 261.
