    Bit new to RSS in the nitty gritty, however using yahoo Pipes to filter and modify a Tumblr stream which I want to bring into WP as posts.

    On first loading the feed I get "This feed has errors"

    loads perfectly Ok in RSSOWl, and FeedWordPress


    Can you advice me what the stumbling block is, and if there is a workaround.

    Yes, I get an error message in the admin (that's means the feed is giving simplepie, that reads the url, an error), but it nonetheless renders ok on the web site, like here:

    Also, I think the problem for simplepie is that that the rss feed has an empty space at the end of the feed, see here:


    This causes some readers problems. If you have access to control that feed, get rid of the extra space and see if that solves the error problem,

    Ok thanks for coming back Allen.

    The empty space I dont think I have any control over. I believe it is a formatting issue with the way yahoo pipes bolts together the post elements.

    That aside I am still not getting any feed come through into the posts, the message "The most recent feeds have been put into posts" is posted to the admin window after using the fetch button, but nothing ariving in the posts tab. When you said it renders to the site do I assume your test was direct to a template without the draft post stage.
    Only I wish to bring in each post into a draft post.

    I dont know if it is relevent but I am using multisite. The WP is 3.5

    Ok...here is a video of what my experience is...this is on a production server (bluehost) at allenweiss.com


    As you can see, the feed shows errors in the feeds panel (which means that simplepie had problems with it...now when using the Feed to Post, simplepie had to read the feed, but evidently the errors weren't so bad it couldn't be read.

    Hi Allen,
    Yes this is exactly what I'm doing.
    Hopefully later today I will disable all the plugins and go to default theme etc and see if there is a conflict but a bit pushed for time at the moment.

    Your commitment to user issues is looking exceptional BTW, hats off my friend.

    Allen - things interfered I'm afraid anyway back on the case earlier.
    So retracting my original statement as you said in spite of the error message the feed does render, so cool I can live with that.

    Thanks for your help.
