Support » Fixing WordPress » My feed fails validation?

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

    Feed URL: http://www.sinfulthrills.co.uk/blog/feed

    These are the errors detected:

    This feed does not validate.
    
    line 18, column 62: sy:updateFrequency must be a positive integer: http://wordpress.org/?v=3.0.1 [help]
    
    	<sy:updateFrequency><![CDATA[http://wordpress.org/?v=3.0.1]]></sy:updateFre ...
                                                                  ^
    In addition, interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendation.

    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 feedvalidator.org 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!

    Hello!

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

    comments_rss_link

    to

    post_comments_feed_link

    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?
