  • Resolved neesa


    Dear WP RSS Aggregator Team,

    Great job! I’m very happy user of your plugin.

    But I have problem. I have 3 feed sources added to plugin, two of them works fine (both from same page), but third source throws error “Invalid feed URL” (URL: It’s W3C valid.

    All my sources are generated by Joomla and are working with other feed aggregators.

    In debugging I can see: “Your server supports fsockopen” and in Error Log: “[13-11-2017 16:25:13] [Error] WPRSS > wprss_get_feed_items:
    Failed to fetch feed “”. The resource could not be retrieved because of a client error with code 403
    Server returned 847 characters, of which 150 are below:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN” “”>
    <html xmlns=”” every hour.

    Could you help me, please?

    Hi @neesa,

    Glad to hear you can make use of our plugins!

    With regards to your problem, we have tried fetching your Feed URL and we encountered the same error as yours here.

    For such an error, usually, there is a problem with the source feed itself.

    If you have control of that feed URL, please check whether you have invalid characters, unnecessary whitespace at the beginning of the feed or such within the RSS feed.

    Those sometimes might still work with other feed aggregators. However, in some cases, they don’t work with the RSS Feed Library (SimplePie) that is included with WordPress and the one that WP RSS Aggregator use.
