  • I give up!
    I am trying to activate the feedburner plugin but only get.
    either an error about
    The URL you entered does not appear to be a valid feed. We encountered the following problem: Error on line 2: The processing instruction target matching “[xX][mM][lL]” is not allowed.
    or else it redirects me to:
    Identify Feed Source ….
    then the url is
    RSS .92: http://feeds.feedburner.com/BLOGNAME
    or
    Atom 0.3: http://feeds.feedburner.com/BLOGNAME

    For the future though, this read is good as well.
    Other related threads can be found here too. 😉

    Well I can’t complete the signup process for feedburner because of the:

    The URL you entered does not appear to be a valid feed. We encountered the following problem: Error on line 2: The processing instruction target matching “[xX][mM][lL]” is not allowed.

    Therefore I can’t even do what is suggested.

    Also, if I go to jongriffin.com/feed/
    It redirects to:

    http://feeds.feedburner.com/~u/tresero

    I don’t have ~u/tresero anywhere and my permalink_redirect is blank for the feedburner part. Is this value stored in a database field somewhere?

    OK, I am narrowing this down.
    1. it appears that firefox has some issues with xml. It redirects me to google which goes to wikipedia.
    2. There is a blank line at the top of the feed. I run my own server so it isn’t a hosting problem. I don’t know squat about apache, but my guess is something is adding a cr/lf at the top.

    OK, I went through all my plugins and fixed the extra lines (there were many of them) and it is fixed.

    Oh ok, glad to hear something is fixed now, can the status be changed to [Resolved] now, or …?

    Just for reference, I’ve written a guide on setting up Feedburner for WordPress:
