[resolved] RSS Feed will not validate via Feedburner, Chrome or Safari but does validate... (7 posts)

    My RSS Feed will not validate via Feedburner, Chrome or Safari but does display via Firefox.

    More info:

    When I attempt to view my RSS feed, "http://joncobler.com/feed" I get varying results. Safari won't display, Chrome says that there is no style information yet Firefox displays it fine. When I attempt to burn the feed to feed burner it won't validate with error (The URL does not appear to reference a valid XML file. We encountered the following problem: Error on line 1: The entity name must immediately follow the '&' in the entity reference.) When I check it via feedvalidator.org, it says that it's good to go.

    The feed worked fine previously, I believe the update to 3.0 changed things, but I'm not sure.

    I host at 1and1. The wordpress files are in a subdirectory /domain/blog/ ... Any help appreciated.

    Hey Jon!

    I have ran your feed through feed burner myself and it didn't work. I also tried Safari on Mac and it failed to load. I tried it on iPhone and it worked. I tried Firefox and it works! However when I check it with the feed validator, it passes the test, unlike mine. :(

    All the same results as you.
    Incredibly strange.
    Check out my thread. I am making an advanced wordpress blog for my church.

    I just fixed it. Sooo frustrating. I've learnt my lesson. Anyway I better stop ranting. Let me know how it goes and I'll see if I can help. More details would be nice. Because I can't access your server to view your wordpress install, I can't really do all that much.

    Please tell me how you guys fixed this error- I am getting the same validation error on line 1 of my feed:


    I tried several feeds from my site an I got all the same errors, although when I try the built in feedburner validator it all looks ok except for a couple of yellow improvement suggestions- it validates.

    Howe exactly did you correct this issue?
