I have a successful feed at http://oops-hq.us/aerie so I know how to install WP and how to use FeedBurner.
I’ve been trying to create this feed for 3 days now. I’ve reinitialized my database at GoDaddy at least a half-dozen times. Each time, I have reinstalled WordPress 2.3.1 from scratch. Obviously, the DB_NAME, DB_USER, DB_HOST and DB_PASSWORD are all correct.
When I try to create the feed, I get the following:
This feed does not validate.
line 1, column 1: Blank line before XML declaration [help]
line 35, column 1: XML parsing error: <unknown>:35:1: not well-formed (invalid token) [help]
In addition, interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations.
Feeds should not be served with the “text/html” media type [help]
line 33, column 1: Missing atom:link with rel=”self” [help]
First question: WHAT FILE is this reporting (and WHY doesn’t it say so anywhere on the page?). I’ve looked at approximately 40 different files trying to find the syntax described so I can correct it, and I simply don’t see it.
To emphasize: I’ve looked at the following with no effect (and there are no active plugins; this is with both the Default theme and the Munch-1.0 theme):
* Check your wp-rss2.php and wp-atom.php files for blank lines outside of bracketed sections.
* Check your wp-config.php file for blank lines outside of bracketed sections.
* Check your theme’s functions.php file for blank lines outside of bracketed sections.
Second question: WHY is the problem occurring in the first place? Is WordPress 2.3.1 incompatible with FeedBurner? Does it have a problem with the feed being in the root of the site?
I’m really getting quite frustrated with this, and I’ll be very thankful for any insight.
