    Thanks for providing the feed URL. I tried it and cannot get the content either. It has been quite a while since I have run into a feed that failed to parse. I’ll give a look and seen what is going on.

    It appears that the Syndicate Press download client is unable to download the feed content from your feed URL. I can obtain the feed when using firefox. Do you have a .htaccess set on your server that blocks non-standard browser clients?



    No htaccess applied.

    Two other sites I tried, again, among others:

    Still Failed.

    Thanks for the links.

    Deeper investigation shows that your server is returning a 301 Permanent Move message for the feed URL. The feed down-loader in Syndicate Press does not currently handle redirect following. This also explains why the browser followed the redirect, but the SP feed down-loader did not.

    Here is the header returned by your server:
    HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently Date: Wed, 26 Oct 2011 04:14:01 GMT Server: Apache X-Pingback: ETag: “697b18753ce3834e94a6d8633a339bc9” Last-Modified: Tue, 25 Oct 2011 15:18:37 GMT Location: Content-Length: 0 Connection: close Content-Type: text/html

    Over the several years of SP being out in the public release, your sites are the first I have encountered using permanent move of the rss feed. I will look into supporting redirect following in Syndicate Press for a future release.

    As a side note, a whois query shows that is being hosted on godaddy servers. I did a quick google search for “godaddy wordpress 301 redirect rss” and found lots of responses about weird 301 redirects with godaddy hosting. Not to say there is anything wrong with that, but it is curious. I still hope to enable 301 redirect handling in SP, but this at least provides a root cause to the issue.



    GoDaddy sucks. I’m stuck there for a while.

    Hi nikco,
    you need to put a PIPE ‘|’ character in between the name and the URL.

    It should look like this:


    Ahh ok thanks a bunch.

    Would be good to get updated for the screenshots to reflect that 🙂

    Happy to send one over if it helps !

    Hi shabdsangharsh,

    For your first feed URL, when I open it in a browser, my browser is sent to the feedburner page and not the RSS news feed. Looking at the feedburner page, I found this RSS news link:

    Regarding the second link, I am wondering if that server is also doing a page-moved redirect which requires the client app to do a double request in order for the feed to be served. That host is being served off of TUCOWS hosting and I would not be surprised if they are doing the same thing as go-daddy is with the double request page-moved redirect trick.

    I am working on a solution to that which allows SP to still get the feed content from those types of hosts.

    Hello HranchFundi,

    Thanks you so much!
    I’m not technically very sound actually, so I couldn’t find the feed URL you provided. It’s working all right.

    But, I don’t understand page-moved redirect, so I would wait for Syndicate Press update when you’ve got the solution.

    Thanks again friend.

    Love this plugin and i appreciate your hard work! I am having problems with using a xml feed. I add the feed and have tried several feeds ending in .xml and they do not show up? If I add a feed that is an RSS feed then I have no problem. Here is a feed I have tried to get display…
    From this page I can select and feed such as ‘Incidents’
    the feed is
    I added it to SP as
    put in my page as [sp# TDOT]

    I see in your examples you can use xml feeds correct?

    Please respond right away. i have tried to contact you on your website but there is no way to leave a comment or email. Thank you and Happy New Year!
