View Full Version : Feedburner and RSS - not working
12-08-2005, 02:39 PM
I'm a bit of a noob here, so forgive me if I don't give enough information. My site is http://www.chaosscontrol.com.
When attempting to subscribe at Feedburner, I'm getting messages that they are unable to "auto-discover" the feeds from my Web page. If I enter what I think is the correct feed address directly (http://www.chaosscontrol.com/index.php?x=atom) and try to validate, I get errors as well.
Can anyone take some time to take a look and help/offer advice. I would be greatly appreciative.

Well, your RSS feed is there, if you force a download of http://www.chaosscontrol.com/index.php?x=rss you can see it.
However, Safari won't load it. Have you changed index.php at all?
What version of pixelpost are you running?
I think i remember reading that there was a bug with certain characters appearing in posts..

No, I've not changed index.php at all. I'm running 1.4.1 currently.
I'd heard about problems with characters (specifically "&") but I don't have that in any of my post titles. Could it be a problem if that character is in the text/description field as well?

pretty much any special characters cause issues in titles. shouldnt be a problem with the descriptions though

in all versions we tried to clean the special characters more and more
all feedreaders are very special with special characters
so I suggest before we go back to search mistakes / problems in old versions, to update to an actual version
there it is much cleaner (and you will be safe of refererspam etc.)
go ahead and update to 1.4.3

I've updated to 1.4.3. I think everything is OK now. Thanks everyone so much for all the help.
