Support » Fixing WordPress » Problem with Feeds

    My blog is at and my feed is at and I am using the latest version of the Fluid-Blue theme.

    For a few weeks now, my feeds have been down. I checked them with FeedBurner and was given the following error:
    Error on line 2: The processing instruction target matching “[xX][mM][lL]” is not allowed.

    When I follow the link ( ), the error page gives me:

    This feed does not validate.
    * line 1, column 1: Blank line before XML declaration [help]

       2. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    Having Googled and searched here, I am aware that there must be a blank line in a file or files somewhere. I have been through wp-rss2.php and wp-atom.php and wp-config.php and functions.php to look for blank lines at either the start or end of the files and found nothing. I have also disabled and re-enabled plugins to see if there is any change. I have found nothing.

    Can anyone suggest anything else I could try? I suspect my next step may have to be that I change to the default theme to Kubrick for a while to see if anything changes.
