Support » Fixing WordPress » RSS Feed Showing Error and Not Working

  • I recently changed the theme for my blog and now the RSS Feed doesn’t work.

    I’ve researched and tried doing everything but still not luck.

    Link to my site feed:

    It shows the following error:

    This page contains the following errors:

    error on line 2 at column 6: XML declaration allowed only at the start of the document
    Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.

    What does it mean and what should I do? I installed ‘Fix My Feed RSS Repair’ plugin as well, but still doesn’t work.

    What could be the problem?

    Can you replicate the problem using the default Twenty Thirteen theme with all plugins deactivated?

    Hi esmi,

    First I deactivated all Plugins. It still showed the problem.

    After that, I Activated the Twenty Thirteen theme and the problem was solved.

    Again after that, I Activated the Parent theme of my theme and still it worked, and there was no error.

    When I Activated the child theme, the problem showed up.

    So, I guess I have problem in the child theme. What could be the problem in Child theme?

    I have been experimenting with lots of action hooks and functions lately, in the child theme.

    My guess is that you have a leading blank line in one of your child theme’s template files.

    The functions.php in the child theme had a blank line in the beginning. What a blunder mistake.

    Thank you esmi. 🙂
