  • I don’t understand why but my feed is failing validation at

    Feed URL:

    These are the errors detected:

    This feed does not validate.
    line 18, column 62: sy:updateFrequency must be a positive integer: [help]

    In addition, interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendation.
    line 23, column 42: Implausible date: Fri, 15 Jul 2011 23:35:20 +0000 [help]

    NSFW Site

    The brief check I gave it in IE9 showed the feed fine.

    The problem is I want to submit my feed to certain sites that won’t accept it without it first passing validation so I need to ok it…

    In the dashboard, settings, check to see if your Site Title is correct. You most likely are running a plugin that is wrong.

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins (yes, all) to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s). Don’t forget the ones in mu-plugins. If you can’t get into your admin dashboard, try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    Switching to the twenty eleven theme allowed me to pass validation…

    Thank you!


    I had the same error. And someone, which helped me, the error to find changed in comments.php the following




    But with my articles now the URL is added to my twitter account to the article URL. Does someone know, the error lies where there?
