So I am installed a social networking plugin for the greghunsucker.com blog and when I click on the add feed button, it doesn’t work. The browser, IE just gives an error while Firefox gives specific details (a reason why several of my friends prefer Firefox).
I am such an old school person. The RSS feed in generated by WordPress, so you can’t edit the file directly. I have to look for the root folder of the install where there should be a wp-rss.php and wp-rss2.php files that I need to edit.
I found a good entry on how to fix the problem at the developer fustion website: http://www.developerfusion.com/forum/thread/47606/
One of the WordPress support forums suggested seeing if there is a Feedburner plugin getting in the way. That’s not the case. Also adding this bit of code:
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0 Feed for Posts from my site (the main feed)" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" /> <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Atom 0.3 - <?php bloginfo('name'); ?> " href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>" /> <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Comments Feed - for all the comments on this site" href="<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>" />
I saw Computer Fix’s blog where he says how to fix an RSS feed without plugin’s. http://www.computer-fix.net/how-to/display-an-rss-feed-in-wordpress-without-plugins/
