  • Hi,

    I have two RSS feeds coming up on my site and I’m not sure why. I only want the one feedburner feed to be used so I’ve added it in the header myself using the following code:

    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Peter Ahrens RSS feed" href="" />

    I’ve removed all the other RSS links and yet there is still two feeds. If I remove the above code it will still have a feed displayed in the browser but it doesn’t link anywhere. I’ve also got the feedsmith plugin installed.

    My website is

    Anyone got any idea,

    Thanks for the reply. I found that code and have tried it, but it removes all feeds on the blog including my feedburner feed. has only the one RSS feed coming up in the URL bar which is a feedburner feed. This is what I’d like to achieve.

    Try adding:

    remove_action( 'wp_head', 'feed_links_extra', 3 ); // removes comment feed link

    to the top of your theme’s functions.php file just after the opening <?php line

    Thanks again but it’s still not working. I’m starting to wonder if it’s the shopp plugin I have installed creating this feed. It doesn’t actually go to any feeds at all.

    Sorry that’s not true. I just tried it in Safari and both go to feedburner. Whereas firefox sends it to a non existing feed in one of the shopp folders

    Ok, I’ve found the culprit.

    <link rel='alternate' type="application/rss+xml" title="<?php htmlentities(bloginfo('name')); ?> <?php echo urldecode($this->Category->name); ?> RSS Feed" href="<?php echo $link; ?>" />

    This line is adding an RSS feed to every page from my shopp plugin. Does anyone know how to write something up in the functions.php file to remove it?

    Thanks a lot for all the help so far too.
