RSS feed giving an error message!

  • I know there is a simple and easy anser for this but I can’t find it anywhere.

    I just created a new blog a few days ago. When I clicked the RSS feed button on my sidebar (to make sure it was working) I got an error message. Check it out yourself here:

    http://www.iregrewmyhair.com

    The RSS links that go to Yahoo! and Google seem to work. Just the first one on the list is giving me trouble.

    Did I forget to set something up?

    Fixed it? http://www.iregrewmyhair.com/feed/ seems to be just fine.

    Hm. No, I still get an error message. Perhaps it could be my feedreader? I don’t think so, though. I don’t even get a feed icon in the URL bar in Firefox.

    If you click on the link http://iregrewmyhair.com/feed/ what happens?


    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.”

    And then the script for the entire page appears.

    And now the real question: What browser are we using? Is it capable of showing XML (which I believe is what you’re describing as the script for the page).

    FF and IE show a nicely formed pile of XML which is what makes up your RSS feed.

    I’m using Firefox. So when I go to iregrewmyhair.com/feed/ i just get that error message. Am I correct in the assumption that it’s not my feed at my blog that’s giving me the problem but my browser?

    Thanks for your help by the way.

    Doh! I just got a feedreader called RSS bandit and added the feed. Works fine now. I feel pretty dumb. I was always under the impression that FF came with a feedreader and by clicking on the little orange symbol I would automatically become subscribed.

    Thanks for the help, though.

    actually, I’ve been reading your feed with Firefox 1.5. Odd that you couldn’t.
