help, RSS feed problem after permalink change :(

  • Hi, I changed permalink structure two times, first I moved to date based and than I decided to go with just postname – but now when I go to feed, I see allot of useless code associated with previous permalink structure. Is it possible to re-generate feeds? so that they only show current links?

    I would appreciate any help.

  • Feeds are always generated on the fly.

    We need more information. Can you post a link to your feed, perhaps?

    Also, remember that changing permalinks doesn’t change the content of your posts. If you linked to posts in other posts, then those links are no longer valid when you change the permalinks.

    I don’t think so… right now my RSS page contains links from the first permalink version which uses dates + the new one.

    If you’re talking about the GUID, then those never change. Ever. The GUID is fixed at the time that the post is created. Changing the GUID would sorta break the whole point of having a GUID.

    It doesn’t matter that the GUID is an old permalink. Readers are not supposed to use it as a link anyway. Thus the isPermalink=”false” attribute.

    oh, okay… so I don’t worry about that? 🙂
