Support » Fixing WordPress » My RSS2 feed seems to have problems…

  • Hi folks
    Please have a look at:
    http://www.dailyjews.com/wp-rss2.php
    As you can seee, it doesn’t seem to like exporting this as an rss feed.
    from this entry
    http://www.dailyjews.com/index.php?p=51
    When I look at the problem area, all I can think of is that for some reason, the character “” inside a block quote is causing a problem.
    Any idea what the problem is?
    Are there certain characters that cause problems with the rss feed?
    I have had this problem since WordPress was installed. The way around it has ben to remove the “” character.
    But I have seen other sites where having “” does not cause any problem.
    thanks
    Leslie

  • Could be the MS “curly quotes”?

    Does this help any? http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailyjews.com%2Fwp-rss2.php
    Ignore the “Your feed appears to be encoded as “utf-8″, but your server is reporting ‘US-ASCII'” error. It doesn’t mean anything.

    hi guys
    thanks for your help. should there be a configuation change that i need to make on my server, or what should i do?
    thanks again

    hi guys
    i tested that posting on another version of wordpress i am running on a different server and am not getting any problems, so i suspect it is a setting issue.
    so again, any helpful pointers on how my server should configure this would be appreciated/

    The way my sever explained the “Your feed appears to be encoded as “utf-8″, but your server is reporting ‘US-ASCII'” problem to me was that the change could damage existing content and really isn’t necessary.

    Try this ?
    Add “AddDefaultCharset utf-8” to your .htaccess

    hi there
    My server company made a change from utf-8 to ISO-8859-1
    can you have a look again at
    http://www.dailyjews.com/wp-rss2.php
    And let me know if you are seeing error message. I am seeing it on my browser, my server management company say it look fine on their browser.
    thanks

    I don’t see a problem with it.

    thanks seems to be working.
    also discovered the offending character that was causing the problem was the ‘ symbol.
    I cut and paste into wordpress, but for some reason, wordpress did not like the ‘ character as a cut and paste.
    So I then removed it and entered the ‘ symbol manually and it worked.
    So the moral of the lesson: be aware when cutting and pasting that it could cause some problems with the RSS feed.
    cheers
