How to add my sites RSS to http://www.google.com/ig? (7 posts)

    The new site http://www.google.com/ig now has a feature where I can add my own content by typing in the URL of the RSS feed.

    My site is http://thisistheurl.com and the URL to my feed is http://thisistheurl.com/feed. Just typing that URL in does not work.

    Is there an incompatibility problem with the RSS version WordPress is using and the one Google/ig wants? It would be nice if I would be able to add it.

    Best regards,

    Nope. I added my comments RSS with no problem, it's showing up fine. I'm just guessing, but my URL included a trailing slash. Again, it's just a shot in the dark.

  3. It's not working because your feed isn't working!

    http://thisistheurl.com/feed gives me a blank page as does http://thisistheurl.com/feed/

    As you are still running WP v1.5.1 it would be worth updating to as it has a number of fixes including for some security issues - Think may or may not fix your feed issue

    Oh! I just saw it myself! :-(

    I haven't changed anything using plugins, hacks or other. I will try to update and hope that my feed starts working again.

    I am running v1.5.1, hope that it will be resolved for me when I upgrade. This was a downer.. :-(

    It solved itself! :-) All I had to do was post another time.

  6. Ah.. that sound familiar... there was a bug in 1.5.1 which meant that you needed to post once every 24 hours or something for your feeds to work.

    This was fixed in but an upgrade to is recommended because of security vulnerabilities in previous versions.
