Invalid Feeds – Cannot subscribe in Thunderbird
I haven’t tried any other clients, but Thunderbird won’t subscribe to my feed because it says it’s invalid. I was told in my other thread that this wasn’t a problem :(
My feed is:
I think the link for a feed should be:
(Note: Space added to get it up there without changing it to a link and rewriting it.)
That’s what I have on my site.
btw, I see the feed link on your site. It’s part of the Meta widget if you want to double check it. It looks like you’ve just added it as a normal link.
Hope this helps,
You’re right, that works :)
I added the link manually because the theme doesn’t seem to have one. However, I can’t add a feed: link, because it seems to add http:// in front, if the link doesn’t already start with that. So I can’t have a proper feed link it seems :-(
Again, double check the Meta widget. That’s where the feed links are. You have to add it to your blog.
I see! I was messing with the RSS widget and assumed it must’ve been hard-coded into the template (some seem to show it without the meta widget).
Anyway, the Meta widget has some stuff I don’t want (I just want the rss links), so I’ll leave it as it is for now. I was thinking about moving over to something custom written at some point, so I have a little more flexibility, but I’m too lazy, so WP wins for now! :)
