Support » Fixing WordPress » No rss Feed when permalinks are active

  • Hello,
    when I use permalinks without .htaccess and mod_rewrite, the permalinks works fine. But the url to the rss feed is displayd wrong.
    The permalink option is:
    When permalinks are off the URL to the rss Feed is:
    But when I active the permalinks the URL is:
    And now I get an 404 when I click on that link.
    Does anybody have a solution for that problem?

    The RSS feed won’t work for /index.php/ permalinks. You will have to manually enter the feed address into your index.php structure. The correct URL for your feed is:

    I have same exact issue. I use wp 1.2.2
    So let me see if i got it right: you are suggesting to substitute the php string <?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?> with which is the address of the rss feed.
    Yes i guess this would work!
    But still, is there any way to correct the bug?
    In the meantime this workaround is simple enough!

    I’m also experiencing this problem. I hope this will be fixed in the next version.

    Make sure you update your .htaccess file.

    I’m running into the same problem. Is the workaround above the best and only way to fix this issue?

    Also, I use more than 20 RSS feeds off of my WordPress. Do I have to make a manually change for each of these in my index and .htaccess files?

    Please explain like you’re talking to you’re Mom. 🙂

    Yes, the best method is to replace <?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?> with the URL of the feed that you know is currently working.
