I have spent most of a day trying to find solutions to this online, but I understand very few of them. I’ve tried de-activating and re-activating Feedburner FeedSmith (which I have installed even though I don’t understand what it is).
Any suggestions gratefully received. If they involve editing code, please be as explicit as possible about what and where. THANKS.
Thanks very much for the help. Unfortunately my blog is based on audio clips and that Audio Player, which I’ve just tried, isn’t reliable. When I try to edit its settings, the changes won’t save, and when I try editing my posts to use it, the changes won’t save. I realise that Audio Player isn’t your responsibility (!) but I mention this as it might flag up a problem on my blog for an expert like yourself.
I can’t abandon the player I’m using until I have a viable alternative, even if it means new readers can’t subscribe.
Thanks for this. In the meantime, I’ve discovered some kind of hacking: when readers try to post comments, it goes to a page of Canadian viagra pharmacy stuff.
Do you think this is a coincidence, or connected to the subscribing issue?
Anyway, I’m even more at sea when it comes to resolving the hack than I was/am with the audio/rss problem! The FAQ on ‘my site was hacked’ begins with ‘stay calm’ and then goes on for screen after screen with stuff I don’t understand. Why did I start this blog? I’ll post another question when I can formulate one……………
If you’re not deadpeasant, your site isn’t giving an error. Sorry if that wasn’t made clear.
Your RSS feed works automatically. Just enter the appropriate URL, as I described above, into your browser and you should see an XML document. Since you haven’t provided a link to your site, I can’t give you better instructions than that.
Thanks Doug for all your help. I’ll try and think about rss and audio if I ever solve this hacking problem. I really would never have started a blog if I’d known it was this complicated! It’s like not being able to drive a car without a masters in engineering…
Of course I wanted to embed my blog in my website. I also seem to recall that using audio clips (my main raison d’etre) required org rather than com – is that right?
Btw is com less hackable than org? Every solution I’ve read requires a special education to understand it and/or a full-time job to implement it. Frankly right now I just want to delete my entire blog.
