    Something strange is going on with that RSS feed…if you put it in a browser (like firefox) you can see the contents but the links in the RSS feed lead to 404 NOT FOUND pages…I’m thinking this may be the source of the problem.

    Thanks I’ll see if it’s something at their end.

    I get the exact same message.

    my feed is:
    http://www.mydesert.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?category=RSS06&template=rss_gd_re
    And works fine with other plugins. Any solution?

    well, I just put your feed into WordPress’s standard RSS widget, and this is the error

    RSS Error: A feed could not be found at http://www.mydesert.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?category=RSS06&template=rss_gd_re. A feed with an invalid mime type may fall victim to this error, or SimplePie was unable to auto-discover it.. Use force_feed() if you are certain this URL is a real feed.

    In the next update, I’ll have an option to use force_feed, but until then the feed is causing problems both with my plugin and that of wordpress. My suggestion is to use another plugin if you find one that works with this feed.

    Thanks. Yes, I found a couple that work, just liked yours.

    Ok..I tried it using force feed, but it still isn’t working…which plugin did you find that got this feed to work?

    I’ve been through a couple, but the one I settled on was wp-rssimport. It’s v4.4.12 and using the shortcode:

    [RSSImport display="3" feedurl="http://www.mydesert.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?category=RSS06&template=rss_gd_re" target="blank" displaydescriptions="true" html="true" ]
