Re: All RSS Feeds Broken?



Not sure whether this is the same issue, but thought I’d post it here just in case. Before and after the above patch, I get exactly the same result. All of the RSS feeds display correctly, except the feed for all posts across the forums, that is, “<forum URL>/rss/”, which displays a blank page.

This is true for Firefox and IE7. On the problem page, IE gives the message “feed code error”, with the following details:

Invalid xml declaration.
Line: 13 Character: 3

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

[update] One difference between before and after the patch is the IE error. *Before* the patch it says:

Invalid xml declaration.
Line: 13 Character: 3

<?xml version="1.0"?><!-- generator="bbPress" -->

One interesting thing: if I browse to “<forum URL>/rss.php” (note the php extension I added), then the top level feed displays fine.

Here are the details of the pages I browsed and the results. All well, except for the top level feed.

<forum URL>/rss/ [blank page] – this is the published feed

<forum URL>/rss [blank page]

<forum URL>/rss/topic/<topic name> [correct feed displays]

<forum URL>/rss/forum/<forum name> [correct feed displays]

<forum URL>/rss/forum/<forum name>/topics [correct feed displays]


<forum URL>/rss.php [correct feed displays]
