"Not in GZIP format" (4 posts)

    I just upgraded to WP 2.0.2 with Steve Smith's "Feedburner Feed Replacement" plugin (which basically does a MOD rewrite to redirect my WP feed to my FeedBurner feed).

    This setup worked fine in my prior version of FeedBurner, however after my upgrade (I also upgraded the plugin to the WP 2.0 compatible version) I now get an error from FeedBurner saying: "Not in GZIP format"

    Any ideas??

    BTW, I tried deactivating the plugin and the regular feed just returns a blank page. No errors, nothing.

    Maybe look at the "WordPress should compress articles (gzip) if browsers ask for them" setting in Administration > Options > Reading

    I'd just do it manually by adding some rewrite rules above your WordPress ones in your .htaccess.

    Here's what I have for example:

    RewriteRule ^feed/?$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/viper007bondcom-rss2 [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^feed/rss2/?$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/viper007bondcom-rss2 [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^feed/rss/?$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/viper007bondcom-rss [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^feed/atom/?$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/viper007bondcom-atom [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^feed/rdf/?$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/viper007bondcom-rdf [QSA,L]

    Then I pointed FeedBurner directly at wp-rss2.php, wp-rss.php, etc.

    I ended up deactivating the redirect, then deactivating the plugin, and then reactiving it and then the redirect and it seems to have worked.
