RSS Feeds don’t work with WordPress

Writing by on Monday, 5 of November , 2007 at 3:07 pm

Are you trying to enable RSS Feeds in WordPress and they don’t seem to work? You may have played around with the template files, default wordpress files and that most likely might have caused the problem. By default wordpress should be setup so that your RSS works correctly. Are you getting a message saying No input file specified.

Usually the format for the RSS Feed is of the form

Do not forget the / at the end – feed/. If you don’t have Permalinks, they are usually of the form

If the link seems correct, but you still can’t get it to work, go back to the original (default) theme and see what errors you get. Maybe some adsense or analytics javascript in the wrong place etc. Correct the errors and you should be able to get your RSS to work.
