RSS feed shows RSS comments after update

  • As said in the title, some people is telling us that their feed-readers get the RSS for the comments insteed of the main RSS after the update to 2.0.1 version.
    Any idea? Somebody with similar problem?

  • Yesp – same problem here – been reported in a few other threads as well.

    Yes, same problem here http://www.clubfans.de
    After update from 2.0 to 2.01

    Any ideas?

    Uhm I am no expert and maybe this is completely of the mark but I’m pretty sure it’s really down to the theme. Go to the “Presentation” part of the administration, click “Theme Editor” and check the file which will most probably be called “Sidebar”. Somewhere in there should be a reference to your rss feed. Mine looks like this:

    <a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('Syndicate this site using RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('<abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a>

    In case the php refers to the comments instead it would look something like this:

    <a href="<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('The latest comments to all posts in RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('Comments <abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a>?

    Basically you should simply be able to copy-paste the one you want into the sidebar file and remember to hit the ‘update’ button at the bottom of the screen.

    I’m affraid it’s not this, but thanks anyway.
    Our code at El utilitario:
    <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('Syndicate this site using RSS 2.0'); ?>"><?php _e('Entries <abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a></li>
    <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('The latest comments to all posts in RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('Comments <abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a></li>

    The first points to http://www.elutilitario.net/index.php/feed/ and the second to http://www.elutilitario.net/index.php/comments/feed/.
    The problem seems to be with permalink codification (or something) 8$

    if you cahange the permalink structure, it works.

    @despacho: Sorry, but this cannot be the solution of this problem. There are more than 600 entries with an explicit permlink-url in my wp – also in the searchengines.

    searchengines will renew entries!
    ..in some time…
    …long time 🙂

    All these sites use index.php as part of the permalink structure. What could be causing the problem with that??

    I’m having exactly the same problem. Any fixes yet?

    There’s a ticket created in the bug reporting system
    http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2379

    Same problem here.
    Also with a clean new installation of WP 2.0.1

    Got a solution if you like to use:
    just set permalinks to default and RSS works correctly now~

    check out my site:
    http://www.flaviensun.com/weblog

    It’s solved: click to the ticket number which is mentioned by jdybka and then copy and past one line in /wp-include/classes.php – ready. All your “old” URLs works fine again.

    This seems to solve the problem of allowing the “old” URLs to work, but it doesn’t seem to solve the problem in which RSS for Entries (Posts) acutally points to RSS for Comments.

    As flavien mentions above, setting Permalinks to default allows the main RSS for Entries (Posts) to point to Posts, but even with the fix added to $comments_rewrite (ticket 2379), permalink settings other than default “breaks” the Main RSS Feed. By “breaks”, I mean that the Main RSS points to comments rather than posts.

    I’ve implemented the code fix to /wp-include/classes.php, but it doesn’t seem to fix the RSS issue which is the original topic of this discussion thread.
