RSS Feed not working....
Posted: Wed Jan 17, 2007 7:13 pm
Was hoping someone could help me with this...I have a blog and recently my RSS Feeds stopped working...I have not manually changed any php files. The only thing I can think is I recently changed my theme to Gila Two. I also recently upgraded to the newest version of Serendipity. Dont know if either of these had anything to do with it. Anyone know what I can do to fix it?
Here's my blog:

Can you make sure rss.php and rss2.php are both inside your public html directory? Also, open those files and make sure there is data inside.
Another file to look for is include/functions_rss.inc.php
Just make sure all those files are located where they need to be and we'll start from there.

Hi, Thank you for your help!
I do have the rss.php file and it does have data inside -
it's located: serendipity/rss.php
I also have the include/functions_rss.inc.php
but I dont have the rss2.php file anywhere....

You might want to re-download the serendipity package and verify that all files are present in your current install. If they're not there...place them there.
Don't forget to back up everything before you do that though! (including MySQL tables). It's very important to do so whenever you change files or tables in your database.

Hm, your RSS feed at http://simplemoviereview.com/serendipity/rss.php
basically works, but there's an invalid tag.
Did you configure your Syndication plugin to include an image? What exactly did you enter there? Usually you should only enter a URL, not HTML!
Feed not working here either

the rss feed on my themes site isn't working either. Whichever feed I click on I get a similar message to
XML Parsing Error: syntax error
Line Number 1, Column 1:Invalid RSS version specified
as cranyojo I have the rss.php file and it has data inside, I also have the include/functions_rss.inc.php. I dont have the rss2.php file.

Your problem is a completely different one. You don'T seem to have the feed*.tpl files in your templates/default/ directory.
The rss2.php file is irrelevant, it does not belong to serendipity.

Thanks for that - I've just copied them over and everything is, as you might expect, working perfectly now

well this is wierd..
Im doing a new style. I was going to try the rss feature so click on the sidebar link.
As i am usin firefox 184.108.40.206 i have the new thing that runs a polite interface to show you the feed and where you wanna save it but this time it didnt, i just got this:
Code: Select all
XML Parsing Error: xml declaration not at start of external entity
Line Number 2, Column 5:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
i change the style to the default one Serendipity v2.3 by Tom Sommer, and then the whole thing works!
i try manualy to add the URL of the feed (both the one with the Sommer style and the one with my style) to google reader and works!
im wondering if its just a bug of firefox, but i dont think so

This error message can happen if you edited any file and inserted (accidentally?) spaces or line feeds/carriage returns before the first <?php or after the last ?>. Please check those?
It might be related if your theme has a config.inc.php file? Or if you edited a local language file?
