Very simple, have some feeds I'd like to feature on my site. I added them via the widget system to the right bar, set the feed URLS, gave them names, and I don't see the RSS widget / plugin work at all on the right side.

Is there something else I need to enable?

Thank you in advance.

OSX 10.8.5 WP 3.8.x Atahualpa 3.7.x Safari 6.x Firefox 25 XP
What version?
What is the URL?
What widget did you use?
What did you put in it?

Version: WP - 3.2.1, Atahualpa - 3.6.7
URL: Site - http://cococentral.com/, RSS (1 of 3) - feed://rss.gmane.org/gmane.comp.hardware.tandy.coco
Widget: Used the default "RSS" widget that comes with the theme.

Attached screenshot for settings. Pretty basic stuff. I'm a seasoned video game programmer and WP enthusiast. Haven't used an RSS widget in the past though.

You don't have the 3.6.7. Patches applied. Go to the 'New Versions & Updates' forum and apply them ( there are 5 but number 2 has been incorporated in one of the others)

Your feed must be wrong. try this and see if you get feeds from google
HTML Code:

Really odd, you're URL works. The feeds I'm using work with normal RSS browsers. Is there a format that needs to be adhered to?

These are the feeds:
  • feed://rss.gmane.org/gmane.comp.hardware.tandy.coco
  • feed://rss.groups.yahoo.com/group/CoCo3FPGA/rss
  • feed://web.me.com/allenhuffman/CoCoFest/Blog/rss.xml

Found the Feed Validator, and I think I'm onto it. Thank you for the help.
