Support » Theme: Almasi » Problem with Almasi RSS widget

    Hi! I’m trying out your lovely theme but I’m getting an error message using the RSS Feed widget. If I click on the hyperlink, nothing happens, but, interestingly, if I click on the RSS icon, it does in fact take me to the feed page.

    As an aside, the feed shows up just fine if I use the Meta Widget instead.

    Error message is:

    Unknown Feed

    RSS Error: A feed could not be found at [http://www.]sitename.com/feed. A feed with an invalid mime type may fall victim to this error, or SimplePie was unable to auto-discover it.. Use force_feed() if you are certain this URL is a real feed.

    Your assistance will be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Thank you for using Almasi.

    The RSS widget is a standard WordPress widget and not part of the theme but should work correctly.

    Have your tried testing it against the default theme?

    Could you also provide a valid link so that I can run some test to see if there’s indeed a bug with the theme’s handling or the feed itself?

    Hi Zulf, and thanks for the prompt reply.

    I’ve just tested with the Twenty Fourteen Theme, same problem.

    The link is http://www.antiquesgeek.com

    No problem 🙂

    The actual site feed url is http://antiquesgeek.com/feed – tested on my local server and it works fine.

    Can I ask why use the feed from the same site as opposed to using one of the post widgets like the provided recent posts?

    The RSS Feeds just started working.We cannot explain these things.
    The only thing I did differently was to disengage the plugin that bars the site from public view.

    I was using the site feed in order to provide visitors the option of subscribing via syndication, not just to view recent posts on the front page.

    Thanks a bunch!
