Problem with RSS feed

Post by rlvision » 18 Aug 2010, 09:58

Hi,

My web browser Firefox has been unable to load your RSS feed lately. If I run it through the W3C feed validator it does not pass:

http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi? ... %2Ffeed%2F

Just wanted to let you know about this problem.

Updating didn't help.

I can't be 100% sure, but you recently changed the theme of the blog/frontpage, and it's quite possible that the problems started around then, if that can be of any help to you.

Looking at the error report in the validator link, you can see that the content of the feed is like this:

Code: Select all

<rss>
</rss>
<!DOCTYPE>
<html>
</html>
So first is the rss feed, then an html document follows (why?). The error occurs at the DOCTYPE line. I suggest searching wordpress for an option to not include this html document.

The theme is the default theme of Wordpress 3.0. I upgraded to Wordpress 3.0 recently. Yesterday I updated to 3.0.1.
I don't remember to have customized anything of the RSS feed stuff. I already checked the settings for the RSS feed, but could not detect any problem. I will search the Wordpress site whether this is a known bug.

Problem solved. It was caused by WP-United.
