Help, please! My RSS feeds aren’t working right.
Background on my skill level:
I have a new, as yet unpublicised blog created with WordPress. (Wow! Thanks to all you who maintain and create this wonderful software!) I am not a programmer of html or anything else. However, I have used MS Frontpage for many years to create and maintain my non-blog, non-WordPress website and have, once in a while, poked in the html view in Frontpage to put in Google AdSense ads or make other monkey-with-a-Swiss-Army-knife type tweaks.
The current situation:
To create pages in my new blog (new webhost, new URL), I used WordPress Dashboard as an ordinary user [non-programmer], working with “Visual” tab, not the “Code” tab. I then uploaded and installed from the WordPress approved theme library “Positive Feeling 1.2 by Roy Tanck.” Beautiful theme! (Thanks, Roy!)
Using Internet Explorer 6.0, when I click on the pre-programmed “RSS” link or the “Comments RSS” link, I get the message “The page cannot be displayed…currently unavailable.” Here are the respective URLs of these links:
RSS link: feed:http://www.bestfreetraining.net/?feed=rss2
Comments RSS: feed:http://www.bestfreetraining.net/?feed=comments-rss2
The WordPress Feed Validation Service, when applied to either of these feeds reports: “Congratulations! This is a valid RSS feed.”
Using Firefox 184.108.40.206, when I click on these feed links, they allow me to establish a proper feed link — at least to My Yahoo page. However, after I set them up on My Yahoo, the links display, but do not appear to be actively working — they don’t update when I change something at my blog.
What’s a non-programmer to do?? I’m afraid to publicise the site until this is resolved.
