RSS links show document tree instead of feed

    Hi, there.

    I have been getting sporadic errors with my RSS feeds using both my own theme and the default Kakumei theme on the latest installation of bbPress.

    Sometimes when I hit the various RSS links, the following error comes up on a new page followed by a listing of the document tree:

    “This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.”

    Usually, when I hit the back button on my browser and try the feed button again, it works fine.

    Any idea what’s going on here and how to fix it?

    Thanks!

    Please post a link to the feeds that are not working.

    Is this your forum?

    I was able to get a proper feed for everything there, never a document tree. If you want to validate specific feeds, you can go here:

    Thanks, chrishajer. That is indeed my forum. I’ll try validating the feeds and see what happens.

    Cheers!

    Hey, there.

    Well I finally got around to validating my feeds. They do in fact validate, but I’m still getting the document tree intermittently on Firefox 3.0.3 for Mac OSX. I don’t seem to be having a similar problem on Safari (though I haven’t tested it as extensively). Here’s the output for the feed at http://agitainment.com/ics/forum/rss.php?forum=3:

    <p>If you haven’t already been to stanandjess.com, there is currently a place-holder cartoon on the site. Rest assured, the real cartoon is coming soon and will be updating weekly. I’ll be sure to let you all know when I roll out the first strips.

    As I mentioned before, if I page back on the browser and hit the feed again, it usually works.

    Is it possible this is a Firefox issue?

    Any ideas?

    Wow, that’s very weird. Using Firefox3/Mac as well I can make it work by holding down shift on refresh. It’s almost like a caching issue.
