wordpress/feedburner problems

Postby claycath » Sun Dec 28, 2008 9:57 pm

Ok, I know IMs love wordpress but so far I'm not impressed. I have had one problem after another with it. And not being techy, it's been a very frustrating, slow process just trying to get my blog up and running.

My latest problem is, I cant sign up for feedburner. First, it says there are 3 feeds on my site & which one do I want to use? Below are my choices:
RSS 2.0: http://bloggydoggies.com/feed/
RSS .92: http://bloggydoggies.com/feed/rss/
Atom 0.3: http://bloggydoggies.com/feed/atom/

BUT, when I try to use any of the 3, I get this error page that says:

This feed does not validate.

* Server returned HTTP Error 404: Not Found [help]


In addition, interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendation.

*line 10, column 8: title should not be blank [help]
<title></title>

On the other feeds, it has a different line it doesn't like. But they all have the 404 error.


So can anyone tell me where to find this on my site to fix & what I should put in there? And why am I getting a a 404 error when the site is obviously there?

Thanks for any help anyone can give me. I think I'm about ready to move over to typepad. LOL

Never mind. I figured it out. I do have another question though.
How do you get permanent text up on the blog? Not a post or a page but I want to have a few lines of text under the header but before a blog post. And I want it to be permanent. Is there any way to do that?

Since you're using Wordpress, you'd have to go in and edit your theme directly. You can do this either through your Wordpress admin panel or editing the PHP file directly through FTP. Send me a message if you need some help.
