I am new to Pixelpost and just got my blog online. My issue is with the RSS auto Detection. When I use the RSS button on my Mac the feed is found with nop problem using NetNews Wire as my reader. But on my wife's PC FeedDemon says it cannot find the feed. I've checked this on 2 different PC set to subscribe automatically into FeedDemon and I get the same thing.
I did a search and checked that my <atuodetect> links are there in my template image file so I am baffled. My whole reason for doing a blog was for the RSS for my family and friends who are all on PC's
Any help would be very appreciated.

The link at the bottom of your post does not currently work for me, I just get a 404.
Can you post the code for your feed? or a working url so we can see?

It's working fine for me. The only thing that I can see that May be throwing off FeedDemon is that you have a space in one of your file names, that causes your feed not to validate.

Cool. Being a RSS dodo, can you tell me exactly what I need to fix for that?

The easy way to do it would be to delete the image from your PP install, rename the file without the space, and then reupload it to your PP site.
If you don't want to delete the image from PP, then you'll need to rename the file on the server, then login to your database and change the file name reference. If you want I can give more detailed instructions.

That would be most helpful. I know my way around HTML but all the php stuff throws me for a loop. So if you could be as specific as possible that would be super. Thanks so much for your time!

Ok. I just checked your feed again and noticed that there are several photos with spaces in the file names. All of these will have to be renamed in order to fix the feeds. Let me see what I can come up with to make this less tedious.

Yeah it's a bad Mac habbit. I've renamed the files and I'll just have to delete and re-up them one at a time unless you know of an easier way to do that.

You don't have to delete your posts. Just edit them and re-upload the image with the fixed filename.

Filename will not change by reuploading!

Yeah that's what I thought. Thanks Dennis. I'll just do it the hard way.

Hi, I am new here, just got my blog running with photolord theme. Have not found a solution to the RSS & Atom feed problem, it does not show any photos in the feed, like the path is not correct. Php is just three letters for me. Could You please look at that
thanks a lot
Path to RSS:
and there you see incorrect path to photos:
You forgot to add trailing / after photoblog URL :)
It should be:
and not like:
