  • It’s due to the fact several empty lines are begin inserted at the top of your feed, which is a validation problem with syndication formats like RSS.

    Note the same empty lines are added to all your pages, not just your feeds. I’d try disabling what plugins you have to see if one of these is throwing in the lines.

    i thought the
    tag before the content tag in the template did the problem, but thats not it.

    These are the only plugin i am using:
    comment count
    yahoo/msn style smileys
    Jerome’s Keywords
    Optimal Title
    Post Count
    PHP Exec
    Spam Karma 2 – Reloaded

    which one of these could be doing this?

    Take a look at the Atom 1.0 Plugin at

    Go through all your plugins actual PHP files. Look at the beginning and end of the plugin. If there are any blank lines there, outside of the <?php and ?> tags, then remove those blank lines.

    Also check your theme’s functions.php file, it can cause the same effect.
