  • You could have done it much easier with a rewriterule or two in your .htaccess file, to rewrite the google requests to your wp feed urls.

    This is a bug in the Googlebot.

    That is not the best option. I tried that already and google started to ask for
    /blog/feed/rss/rss.xml
    /blog/feed/rss/index.rdf
    /blog/feed/rss/atom.xml
    etc
    The trouble is that the link /blog/feed/rss/ does not tell a browser or other user agent (like search engine bots or feed readers) that the file type is xml, instead it looks like a directory.

    I get a 500 server error when I add this to my .htaccess file:
    <files rss.xml>
    ForceType application/x-httpd-php
    </files>
    <files rss2.xml>
    ForceType application/x-httpd-php
    < /files >
    <files index.rdf>
    ForceType application/x-httpd-php
    </files>
    <files atom.xml>
    ForceType application/x-httpd-php
    </files>

    Well, Mozilla Firefox has obviously no problem with the RSS feeds provided by WordPress… have you already contacted Google?

    i thought rss and atom were xml, why then is xml not the correct extention for them?

    My web host doesn’t support .htaccess file, is there any other way to solve this problem?

    where do I find my wordpress rss file?

    I’m not sure a 2 year old unrelated thread was the best place to start…

    WordPress finds it for you. Have a look at WordPress_Feeds
