[resolved] Rss and permalinks not working at all! (12 posts)

    I'm quite a bit frustrated, I've been trying to solve these problems for hours and it seems hopeless.
    I just installed a brand-new wordpress blog on my domain.
    There are two problems:
    1. Although rss is supposed to be automatic, there is no rss feed! When I put /feed after my site's address it says: "404 Not Found The requested URL was not found on this server".
    2. I tried this permalink stuff, created a .htaccess file with the code suggested by wordpress but it brought the whole site down saying "internal server error".
    Can somebody help me? I starting to become desperate!

    so you're not going to post the resolution to help others?

    I'm having the same problem, so I would love to see how junglesgal resolved it. The address is http://www.modernbuccaneers.com/blog. Neither the RSS Feed or the Comment Feed are working. I'm assuming something is missing, but I don't know what.

    @ modernbuccaneer
    rss feed is here
    http://www.modernbuccaneers.com/blog/?feed=rss2

    what is your permalink structure as your feed icon points to the wrong place?

    I'll be honest, I don't know what a permalink structure is. I just inserted the address you gave me above and it seems to be working now. What would the address be for the comments feed. Thank you very much for the help.

    That also worked. Thank you again. My permalink structure is set to the default which is http://www.modernbuccaneers.com/blog/?p=123. Would it be better to use a different structure?

    no - whatever you like
    I was just trying to figure it out
    they say pretty permalinks is better for seo if you care about that

    Seems I was having the same problem at saltcreeklife.com. After resetting my permalinks to default, the error stopped. Now I just get a blank page when I click on any RSS link. Whats goin on here?

    Quick note:

    If you have pretty permalinks set up, you would reference the feed like this:

    Category:
    http://www.modernbuccaneers.com/CATEGORY_NAME/?feed=NAME_OF_FEED

    Individual Post:
    http://www.modernbuccaneers.com/POST_URL_TITLE/?feed=NAME_OF_FEED

    and so on...
