[resolved] RSS Feed Ceased Working (8 posts)

    Hi All,
    On or about Aug 20,2013 the RSS feeds for my WP blog ceased to function. I am using version 3.7.1 (was 3.7 when it happened). Tried Feed Validator & it comes back with this error.

    Server returned HTTP Error 500: Internal Server Error

    My feed was: http://freegiftfromgod.com/blog/feed/

    Checked the forums & tried a few things, but can't find anything that helps solve the problem.

    Does anyone know if anything happened around that date? I didn't change anything as I was away on leave all of Aug & Sep 2013.

    Thanks & Regards,
    John

    Reset your reading settings (feed) at Dashboard > General Settings > Reading and see if it resets your RSS feed.

    Hi Krishna,
    Thanks for the quick response. Yes I tried that but made no difference. Still not working & same error message from the validator.
    All the best,
    John

    Deactivate all plugins and change to a different theme (temporarily) and see if the feed link works.

    Hi Krishna,
    Thanks for the advice. I tried what you suggested & discovered the problem.
    The theme was OK, but there were actually three plugins that were causing the issue. Deactivated them & the feed has now come back to life. As it turns out I can live without those plugins anyway so I completely deleted them...keeping things tidy.
    Once again, thanks for your help. It is greatly appreciated.
    Kind regards,
    John
