  • This is not a lot to go on. Did not work how? Was there an error? If so, what was the error?

    Also, a link to your blog would improve the help.

    I’m still in the process of testing the WP blog.

    sorry i didn’t provide enough info. Here’s what happened when i clicked on “Entries (RSS)” in the footer.

    … a window popped up and displayed the following URL:

    “feed:http://blog.mysite.com/feed/“. if I took out “feed:” i think it would solve the problem, right? i have never used RSS before so i don’t know much.

    I’m guessing that i should modify the file footer. when i tried to delete “feed:” in the “footer” link i couldn’t seem to submit the change. At the bottom of the window screen, it shows “If this file were writable you could edit it.” i’m guessing i need to issue a “chmod 655” command for the “theme-editor.php” file? are there any other files that i need to edit? theme.php?

    thanks for the insight.

    feed:http://blog.mysite.com/feed/“. if I took out “feed:” i think it would solve the problem, right? i have never used RSS before so i don’t know much.

    You don’t need the “feed” prefix part. Just the URL.

    Don’t bother about changing the pernissions on the files (chmod). Of course, it wouldn’t be the editor file you have to change permissions on, but he file you want to edit – does it make sense?

    I always edit everything on my computer in a decent text editor (not Word!) and upload the modified version. It is safer.

    i found out that i needed to edit the sidebar.php file. here’s what i’m puzzled with: Why is there a “feed:” prefix in the footer by default? What’s the intention for putting “feed:” prefix there anyway?

    feed is supposed to be the new protocol for feeds

    but is not universal yet. That’s what I heard from the gurus…
