Possible bug w/ rss button (for Pixeled theme) (7 posts)

    Hi,

    This is intended for only the Pixeled theme:

    Not sure if this has some further meaning, but to me it seems like a bug. When you click on the rss image it adds the word "feed:" to the front of the URL and gives a page cannot be displayed. Like I said, not sure this has a meaning w/ some other rss feeds, but it doesn't work for me.
    Solution: I just removed the words "feed:" from line 79 (I believe it was) from the header.php. Works fine now :) Just wanted to post in case anyone either 1) had the same problem or 2) knows if there was an intention to adding that "feed:" phrase. Thanks,
    S

    Its not a bug, that is the way it is supposed to behave. When you click on that link it should take you a option to subscribe to the feed in you RSS feed reader. You have just removed the intended functionality.

    Hmm, yeah, I was affraid of that...but still that does not work for me if I use IE7 as my feed reader. Take the "rss feed for this topic" link...why does that NOT have the phrase "feed:" in it then? I am thinking maybe if you add "feed:" the intention is to automatically subscribe to the feed, whereas w/out "feed:" it gives you the feed page w/ the option to subscribe, is this correct? I just want to know HOW "feed" works if I add it back...Thanks - looking forward to the response unixgolf :)

    Not positive what you are asking, but here is a link to the codex information on WordPress feeds. It may help provide some insight:

    Thx again unixgolf: I don't think you are actually looking at the issue. If you go to the template pixeled ( I provided the link) open the example posted. Then try to click the rss feed image button (on that specific template). I am pretty sure it's a bug because it was not mentioed in the WordPress feeds you posted. anyway, Thanks,

    I'm gonna have to agree with the "bug" theory ... or at least ask ... how do we get the RSS button to do something other then give "this webpage cannot be displayed" ...
