Support » Fixing WordPress » RSS in newsreader?

  • Hey… having a problem with my rss.
    In my newsreader, if I subscribe to a site that has RSS, all I do is type the address: http://example.com/

    but if I do that with my address, it tells me there’s no rss. Any ide what I’m doing wrong?

  • ok, here’s some more info:

    If I look at the html output, I’m seeing something weird. Up in the head, the php line
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" />
    is outputting
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="Name of my Blog" />

    But if I look at that line in other WP sites, that php is outputting the URI of wp-rss2.php.

    Do I have something set up wrong?

    OK, here’s some more info again:
    I fixed the <link> problem in my second post. It was just a path-name problem.

    So in my RSS reader:
    If I put the full address (example.com/wordpress/wp-rss2.php) into my reader, I get it. But not if I just put just the website (example.com). But this works fine with other WP sites.

    Any help?
    thanks!

    That could be because the address isn’t example.com but example.com/wordpress
    It’s going to be where ever your rss file is located, which depending on how you set it up, may or may not be at the root.

    OK, problem is fixed. I have been working in a test directory, since I’m still developing. I had a splash page index in my root. Aparently you have to have the <link> in that page, even though I wasn’t pointing my reader to the root.

    Don’t understand it, but hey, it worked.
