What site?

When I go to www.christiantruthcenter.com/feed I see a feed channel. I am not sure what your issue is.

Swap to twenty eleven and see if you have the same issue. If you do it is not a theme issue

How are you trying to validate the feed? Typically you just type the URL into Feedburner.

I do not want to switch themes now. even when i try to validate the feed in feedburner using the site url only i get the same reply.

Head to feed validator and try to validate the sites feed and see the reply.i need help.

lmilesw Aug 3, 2012 09:16 PM

I would follow the hints at Feedburner and check on Google. I did confirm an error when trying to validate.

joshuamu Aug 4, 2012 02:22 AM

How then i do solve that error in feedburner validator?

I have never gotten that error. It could be a slightly corrupt install of theme. It could be a plugin. To troubleshoot you may have to temporarily switch to the default theme, deactivate all your plugins, etc. Not sure how to give you a step by step.

Can i just re-install the files which contain the rss feed only?

As I said I would
  • Switch to Twenty Eleven to see if validation works
  • If that doesn't work I would deactivate all plugins to see if that works
  • If deactivating all the plugins works I would reactivate one by one to see which is the problem
  • If validation works with Twenty Eleven I might try installing a new copy of Atahualpa in another folder and see if that works. Installing to a new folder allows you to switch back in case something goes wrong
This is all just general troubleshooting type stuff. There is no one right way.


Be sure and back up at least the database and preferable the entire site justl in case.

I have switched to twenty 11 but still i have the same problem

joshuamu Aug 5, 2012 04:04 AM

Thank you so much lmilesw. After deactivating all my plugins and activating them one by one have found that it was 'search engine plugin' causing this problem:confused:.
mark this as solved
