    A few months ago I took over a community blog and everything worked fine those first few times. After a busy month of server and community work I realized that our homepage feed was broken with the following error message

    Error: Feed failed! Causes may be (1) No data found for RSS feed; (2) There are no items are available for this feed; (3) The RSS feed does not validate.

    Please verify that the URL works first in your browser and that the feed passes a validator test.

    I confirmed that was working and it passed the validator test

    Since wordpress appeared to still be functional I figured I would write an entry to awknowledge the issue, but when I submitted the post it didn’t appear on the wordpress page or feed. After some checking I found that the post was dated Dec 14th 1999; however the wordpress options for “Date and Time” reads 2007.

  • 1. Your homepage is NOT a WP site – so don’t mix it here. The feeds there are not this forums’s concern.

    2. Check the timestamp for that post – not the general settings…

    Sorry, after reading your post I did some checking and found that the main page uses a 3rd party plugin. I’ll have to track down the site author.

    The timestamp for the post reads 2007 (same as the settings). I clicked “Edit Timestamp” but left the date the same, I had to re-publish it but it ultimately corrected itself. I have no idea where the year 1999 is coming from.

    I can’t seem to duplicate the problem, so it must’ve been a server glitch or something.
