Support » Fixing WordPress » Feed XML Parsing Error : No Element Found

  • Hi,

    I been looking here for solutions to a feed XML parsing problem I have but could’t find any / or understand how do I fix a feed issue.

    this is the error I get :

    This feed does not validate.

    line 1, column 389: XML parsing error: <unknown>:2:83: no element found [help]

    … /slash/” ><channel><title>Ronen Bekerman

    <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?> <rss version=”2.0″ xmlns:content=”” xmlns:wfw=”” xmlns:dc=”” xmlns:atom=”” xmlns:sy=”” xmlns:slash=”” ><channel><title>Ronen Bekerman
    <!– Served from: @ 2011-04-20 12:29:40 by W3 Total Cache –>

    I disabled the w3 total cache and some plugins that relate to the RSS feed but the same problem remains.

    It seems to me a </title> is missing after the “Ronen Bekerman” text … but why did that suddenly happen (3 post before all was ok with the RSS feed) and how can I fix it?

    Any help is appreciated 😉

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    I’ll try to do that… seems drastic for an issue that just pop up 3 posts ago and not to much has changed. I only deactivated the plugins I added changed since the problem started. I did do some work on the theme so I’ll keep checking that too.

    I put all posts that were made after the last OK rss post in pending mode so that i can re-check the feed for working status but it still had the same problem.

    Any clues about were the actual code for the RSS Feed title is being coded? so i can check the file directly… or am I totally off mark here?
