  • I’ve tried a couple of different feed fixing plugins but to no avail.

    Without knowing what plugins you’re running, the only thing I can say is something is putting 19 bytes of null characters at the start of your feed. That is the reason it won’t validate. (The <?xml…. part has to be the very first characters)

    The only option I know of is to start disabling plugins one-by-one to find the offending one.

    I did go though all of my plugins and disable them one by one to see if there was a culprit. But no luck.

    Any other ideas of where I could look to find those spaces being added to the feed? Where is the feed being generated?

    Aarron, it could be a file in your theme as well. Switching to Twenty* temporarily for testing purposes would help you verify this.

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Hey, Alex.

    Your little experiment worked. When I switched themes the feed started working again. I went through line by line and found one line in header.php that was causing the problem.

    Thanks everyone for the help!



    Only my comments show up on a site called that is supposed to show images and links to all my newest posts. Bloglovin support said my feed is not valid. I check it and it is. I even have the plug-in “RSS Feed Validator” that shows it is good.

    Bloglovin specified that the problem is when the website tries to go to it is redirected to and so it cannot grab a feed. Please help me get my comments off Bloglovin and my posts back on!
