    I am not sure I understand. Your feed is here,

    Yes the feed works…but if you look on our homepage……we have a big error message instead of the normal list of “news” stories. Thanks for any help you can provide!

    You have entered and incorrect url for the feed in whatever javascript or html you used to create the site. Is this a wordpress site?

    We made the site and use the RSS feed to get the stories posted…We havent touched any code. It’s been fine up to yesterday when I did the WordPress upgrade and back up.

    When I did those changes, that’s when things fell apart.

    The theme you are using here:

    Is quite outdated and no longer supported – you should really find a more current theme.


    So what do I do then….I make the changes on WP then change the coding on our website???

    You are using this, to set up your feed. Try building a new javascript with their tool.

    The feed on the wp site is fine so it looks like their script is not working with wp 3.5.2

    And now the theme has changed on the wp site. You had the default theme when I first looked.

    You could also try setting up a new script at
    since you are using their javascript also.

    I just updated my theme…front page of website still messed up.

    This script,

    <script language="JavaScript" src="<rss2&num=4&desc=32&date=y&tz=-6" type="text/javascript"></script>
    RSS feed</a>

    that comes from this website, is wrong. It is calling for rss2. You need to go there and build another script.

    Okay…here’s where I need some help. Can you?? This part is way over my head…

    Sorry, I don’t know exactly what you want it to look like and also just don’t have time. It has a preview button so you can see differences in choices you might make before you generate the code.

    Someone else may jump in here also.

    Okay….Thanks for all your help so far…I’ll give it a shot…so which site do I need to go to get the new look or coding

    You are using script that was output on this site,
    It has a preview and generate code button that you will see.
