Support » Plugin: Seriously Simple Podcasting » This is not a valid feed

  • Hi,

    I have a big problem. I use this plugin for a month now.
    At the beginning everything was ok. Now I got the error when viewing my feed page “This is not a valid feed”. I have no idea what is wrong.

    I hope somebody can help me, because my podcast doesn’t work now.

    The url is:

    When I look at my podcast page, everything looks ok:

    Thank you.

    I know the problem, my template was broken when I updated to WordPress 4.7.

    OK, good to hear everything is resolved. If you run into any other issues let us know.

    I’m having the exact same error. I just updated my theme, in case that was the problem, but nothing seemed to be solved.

    My feed is:

    When I put it into the castfeed validator, I get this:

    Error resolving feed address.
    HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
    Unable to do basic feed validation…(
    This feed validated in 1.49221301079 seconds

    Everything worked perfectly when I first installed this plugin over a year ago.

    Ah, I saw the other posts about this. I did not have any regular posts, and so I created one and that seems to have fixed the issue. Thanks!

    The problem was not the theme.

    But I didn’t have any post. So when you have no post, WordPress 4.7 gives an error at the feed.
    The bug is already reported and fixed in the next WordPress update.




    I am having this same issue. Did you find a work around to allow the feed to continue to work within 4.7?

    Create a dummy post and it is fixed.
    It’s an issue in WordPress 4.7.



    That fixed it, thanks so much!



    Dummy podcast post?

    No, a normal WordPress dummy post.

    If you only have pages and nog posts all feeds will be broken in WordPress 4.7.

    So if you create a dummy post, then the feed will work again.

    This bug is already reported to the WordPress community, there is already a fix. In the next WordPress update this fix is implemented.
