Support » Fixing WordPress » RSS Parser Error

  • I’ve been trying to set up a feed for my site I keep getting the following error:
    RSS parser error: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 23, column 20, byte 767

    I have no idea how to go about fixing this. I know absolutely nothing about RSS feeds. Any ideas?

    I think you’re missing the required files. What version of WP are you running.

    Depending on the format of the feed you want (some version of RSS or ATOM), you need a file in your WP directory called wp-rss.php or wp-rss2.php or wp-atom.php.

    You’ve renamed your feed files to .xml, which will not work since they require php processing (in other words, they are PHP files). Set them back to their original extensions, and they’ll work.
