[resolved] RSS issue: XML error: no element found at line 3, column 0 (5 posts)

    I have updated to 2.8.2 and ever since, the RSS feeds on the sidebar widget come up with the following error:

    RSS Error: XML error: no element found at line 3, column 0

    The feeds are valid, yet if I select the "Podcast" feed on the top-right of my page, I get a weird page (which I will give the first 4 lines below). If I refresh the page, the RSS shows up.

    I am going through the site to see what is causing this, but any up front thoughts would help.

    It does come up, but I have my feed links on the site. When you choose the feed link (upper right hand corner of the site), it doesn't bring up the feed. It brings up the jibberish until I hit refresh - Then the feed comes up properly.

    In further updating to 2.8.3, the problem went away.
