    I am getting 403 forbidden access on feeds, this was working as of Thursday morning but not sure what happened.

    I have Feedsmith plugin to redirect all the feeds to Feedburner but the native file still gives 403.

    http://stayingfitonline.com/feed – will take you to feedsburner page but it is not updated.

    I need to somehow figure out a way to remove the 403 access. Does any one know how to do this?

    Thanks for your time
    Amit

    Do ypu mean when you turn off the redirect this http://stayingfitonline.com/feed give you a 403 error? Had to understand – I guess I don’t.
    You should turn off FB until your feed is working correctly. The feed from WP is fine without FB and will load in people’s browsers, email, etc.

    aright, I de-activated the plugin. I also removed the extra code from .htaccess file too

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress
    
    RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,9}\ /(feed|wp-atom|wp-feed|wp-rss|wp-rdf|wp-commentsrss)(.+)\ HTTP/ [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^feed [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^(FeedBurner|FeedValidator) [NC]
    RewriteRule .* http://feeds2.feedburner.com/stayingfitonline? [R=307,L]

    now the my .htaccess reads like this:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    Any ideas, why am I getting the 403 forbidden access message? I get this message when I try to validate the feed.

    You might want to read this, http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Feeds

    Your feed is at http://stayingfitonline.com/feed/atom/ The feed links on your site are not correct and I suspect there is still some redirecting going on.
