[resolved] RSS does not validate: "XML parsing error" (4 posts)

    Hey Guys,

    Recently noticed that my site (XG247.co.uk) has hit a brick wall with it's RSS feed and is now suffering from a "XML parsing error".

    This is the feed
    http://www.xg247.co.uk/feed/

    and this is W3C giving me some 'results'
    http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.xg247.co.uk%2Ffeed%2F

    I'm not too educated in XML/RSS so I'm a little lost where to look for the fix. I've turned off a bunch of plugins that may of effected the RSS feeds (PodPress) and I've gone through a bunch of post titles to remove 'dodgy' characters like ';' and '&' etc.

    Hopefully someone can get their head around this,
    Sam

    You have a blank line at the top of your RSS feed. Check all of your theme template files for leading blank lines.

    Is there any specific template files that may be causing this? (That you can think of?)

    Thanks for the reply!
