Support » Plugin: Custom Simple Rss » Not a Valid URL for Mailchimp

    I’m getting a “That is not a valid URL” error when trying to submit the feed URL into a Mailchimp campaign setup.

    Every Custom Simple RSS URL fails, including the most simple. I am using the “XML by DOM” setting as otherwise the feed has errors in every browser except Opera (and it fails in Mailchimp too). I have tried the different settings in “show post content in feed” too with no luck.

    Thanks!

    Hi
    Please paste an example URL you are using so I may take a look.

    Thanks

    Hmmm, the URL is already pasted above at bottom of original post. It’s not visible to you?

    Yes it is. Missed it the first time:)

    That is strange. I will take a look. Hopefully will have a suggestion soon

    Hi again
    Your feed seems valid – there should be no issue
    if it fails loading on browser when using the xml by string option – it means you probably have some invalid character in your feed.
    if you change back to xml by string option – and let me know – i will take a look

    best regards

    Ok, changed it back to xml by string.

    Thanks!

    OK
    i have seen it before – you are using jetpack images cdn which adds automatically an invalid character to the url “&ssl=1”
    it is a well known issue which causes problem

    i will have to make a special fix for that – maybe in the next fes days

    hope that helps
    best regards
    Danny
