  • And I’ve got my “Other WordPress News” not displaying anything, but if I select [configure], then the RSS field is pre-filled with this:

    Error: could not find an RSS or ATOM feed at that URL.

    Which is weird, as I’ve not put anything in there for it to reject.


    @mschertel: Increase the memory_limit in your php.ini file. If you don’t have one, you can install one through the php config in the cPanel.

    @iamiam: Try filling the RSS field with:
    If that doesn’t work you may be missing something in your wp-admin and something may need to be uploaded again.

    @mschertel: I forgot to mention that the php.ini is not recursive so you need to put the memory_limit-edited version in the directories which need that php.ini. In this example you would need it in public_html/blog/wp-includes. You may also need it in the public_html/blog/ folder

    @ BernardBorealis

    Sorry, no dice. I inserted the link (and had the same thing suddenly drop down as an option to select… which I’d never inserted before… so *that’s* weird), selected [update] (or “enter”, or whatever the button that isn’t “cancel” or “close” says) and got the same result: no feed information, and the ‘configure’ panel when selected again says the plug-in could not find an RSS or ATOM feed at that URL.


    I feel so out of touch with WordPress…

    I’m having the same problem as iamiam.

    It worked when I first upgraded to 2.7 then it just quit.

    Yup. Same behaviour pattern as me. Self-hosted, used the Release Candidates until 2.7 was released officially (as Coltrane… when will we see a ‘Mobley’, Matt??) and all good initially I think, then… [pfffft]

    [sobs] How will I know what’s happening n the World of WordPress? [sniff] I’m so lonely! [weeps uncontrollably]

    I have the same problem as iamiam and pizzaman also


    I was having the same issue. Try changing the RSS feed to:

    Seemed to work for me.

    prackley, well that works but that just gives me the feed for lorelle’s website. Maybe its just an issue with this feed?


    I’m not sure, but I think they may have changed the link.

    1) If you use your browser and try to go to

    you get an error stating the page does not exist.

    2) If you go to and copy the RSS feed address from that page, it actually points to:

    I don’t get error with the feed in my browser (Fire Fox) and that same feed works fine for me in Google Reader.

    You’re right, I swear I was getting an error, but now I’m not — And I was also mistaken about the being the link from the main page.

    So thank you for the follow up and please ignore my earlier posts, I thought I was onto something there…


    JOY! The feed is functioning again! Once more I feel in touch with the World of WordPress!

    doves take to the air, choirs burst into song, marching bands fill the street, old people kiss, grown men weep with happiness

    YAY! worked for me. I’m still not getting my stats graph, though. 🙁
