[Resolved] RSS Feed Returns Error 404: Not Found
I can no longer get any RSS feeds for my website http://www.theredshtick.com. I’ve tried all the standard links (i.e., http://theredshtick.com/?feed=rss, http://theredshtick.com/?feed=rss2, http://theredshtick.com/feed.rss, etc.), but no dice.
One feed validators indicates “Server returned HTTP Error 404: Not Found.” Another validators says “It looks like this is a web page, not a feed. I looked for a feed associated with this page, but couldn’t find one. Please enter the address of your feed to validate.” It then shows some code with this line highlighted:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN”>
FWIW, I had server trouble earlier this week. Site was down and came back up. When it did, the plugins folder had been duplicated (one named “Plugins” and another “Pluginsx,” the latter containing all the plugin files). I fixed that, only to have a error caused by one of the plugins (a somewhat outdated jquery based one) which I had to completely delete.
Now I can’t get any RSS feeds. I’ve been told (by the folks at Media Temple, my host) it might be a cache issue, but I’m not running any cache plugins. I’ve been told it could be a permalink issue, but I haven’t fooled with them. That was about all they had to offer.
I’m not sure if reinstalling WP (3.4.2) would help. Any suggetsions?
