  • 1.5 or 1.5.1? There’s a bug with RSS feeds in 1.5 which erroneously reports a 404

    If for some reason you can’t upgrade to 1.5.1 then the fix is this:

    In the wp-blog-header.php in the wordpress root, find the section near the top which is

    if ((isset($_GET['error']) && $_GET['error'] == '404')

    ((! empty($_SERVER['PATH_INFO'])) && ('/' != $_SERVER['PATH_INFO']) &&

    (false === strpos($_SERVER['PATH_INFO'], 'index.php'))

    )) {

    and change that check and the end to

    (false === strpos($_SERVER['PATH_INFO'], '.php')

    In other words, just delete the index bit. Should work fine now.

    There’s also a bug in v1.5.1 that caused the feeds to be blank at certain times. So, please upgrade to v1.5.1.2 if you can.

    I would never have figured that out.
    I may selectively upgrade to v1.5.1.2(just copy the changed files), as I’ve lost track of changes I made.
