I have recently installed 2.0.4 on my local machine and GoDaddy installed it on their servers for me (2.0.5). All works well except RSS. When I tried to access the feed with I/E, I get a message indicating there is an error…Here is text of I/E reported error:
Invalid xml declaration.
Line: 2 Character: 3
<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?><!– generator=”wordpress/2.0.5″ –>
When I try using Feed Validator, I get the following:
This feed does not validate.
line 2, column 0: XML parsing error: <unknown>:2:0: xml declaration not at start of external entity [help]
<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?><!– generator=”wordpress/2.0.5″ –>In addition, this feed has issues that may cause problems for some users. We recommend fixing these issues.
Feeds should not be served with the “text/html” media type [help]
Your feed appears to be encoded as “utf-8”, but your server is reporting “US-ASCII” [help]
I tried editing both wp-rss.php and wp-rss2.php, removing all blank lines at the beginning of the files to no avail.
Anyone have an idea how to fix this problem?
