Support » Fixing WordPress » RSS – Yahoo! Permalinks issue — FIX!

  • Resolved missmel58


    I think I have read every post here (and elsewhere) on this issue. And after adding them all up, everything is finally working for me.

    The permalink plugin puts an extra line at the beginning of the XML file and causes RSS feeds to report an error — and not function.

    Deactivating the permalinks plugin will cause all subsidiary pages to go into endless loops…and not load. It’s a conundrum.

    With the permalinks plugin activated. I changed my permalink setting, in the dashboard to DEFAULT (you get some scary pop up message — ignore it).

    Then deactivate the plugin and suddenly everything works!

  • In first time, sorry for my bad english…

    I have a account in Yahoo Webhosting… upgrade to initial WP 2.3.3 to WP 2.6.2. Use a WordPress Automatic Update plugin. Next use a fantastic theme called AGREGADO. Modify default ugly permalinks to better option (year, months, post) and activate Yahoo Customizable Permalinks plugin. In the test all work fine…but (ever had a but) rss feed show XML parser error (this show only in FF3, in IE7 only the tab show error).
    Read this theme in:
    Next check the next archives:
    1. wp-config.php
    2. wp-settings.php
    3. wp-rss.php
    4. wp-rss2.php
    5. wp-feed.php
    6. wp-atom.php
    7. functions.php (in the theme in use)
    In this archives fix the issues.

    On the brink of madness…:-) check the Yahoo Customizable Permalinks plugin, and discover a blank space after ?>. This file no have assigned rewrite permission…and FTP tools no have utility. Need login in administrative Yahoo interface, next in File Manager, search the file under plugin folder and delete the extra space after ?>…next VOILA…the RSS Feed work fine.

    This mode, active nice permalinks and have feed rss OK.

    I hope that this experience is very useful.

    You’re a star!
    I removed the spaces in the widget code using the ‘edit’ function on the widget page itself (having deactivated the widget).
    Put the feed through the W3 feed validator and no ‘space’ error….seems to have resolved the problem.
