  • Resolved ThecounT


    I am getting this error in firefox (mac) but not safari when going to my feed page

    XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
    Line Number 2, Column 1:<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>

    I removed all plugins, that did not work, I check functions.php for spaces, did not see any.

  • Apparently there is a blank line before your feed starts. That is enough to throw some feed readers off.

    Not sure exactly where to suggest you look for the blank line, but you are getting a line of output from somewhere that’s winding up in your feed. If you’ve modified the feed or are using any feed-related plugins or functions in functions.php, start by looking there.

    I was wondering if a leading or trailing space in wp-config.php or wp-blog-header.php could cause this.

    it is at my URL. not other reader, and only on firefox. have taken out all blank spaces/ lines from wp-config.php, functions.php and header.php.

    Any more ides?

    found space in .com/feed/ fixed!
