Re: WP 2.7/Atahualpa V 32.2

I've had Google/Feedburner html code in a text widget and on my subscribe page for quite a while. Suddenly I get an email from a friend who wanted to set up a feed for my blog sharing that he got an error message.

I checked and sure enough. I get the following message when I try to sign up for a feed. The same thing occurs when I use the built-in RSS setup.

====================
XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
Location: http://feeds2.feedburner.com/beautyprpro
Line Number 1, Column 2: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
-^

====================

I've checked out the problem using Google/Feedburner's Validator and it says:

======================
This feed does not validate.
line 1, column 1: Blank line before XML declaration [help]

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
^
======================

I suspect the blank line is coming from when the php renderis or perhaps it contains a blank line. Has anyone else brought this up? Thanks for any info.

You might have uploaded some theme files in binary mode which should have been ASCII mode. Is your FTP client set to "Auto" as it should? Also check for blank lines at the bottom of /wp-config.php and /wp-content/themes/atahualpa332/functions.php

Hi Flynn,

Yes transfer mode of Filezilla set for 'auto'.

1. Copied original working functions.php into /wp-content/themes/atahualpa332/functions.php
2. Copied back on to server an originally working copy of /wp-config.php.

Error message slightly different now

==============================
XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: http://feeds2.feedburner.com/beautyprpro
Line Number 1, Column 2:# <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
-^
==============================

Could it be something else?

Alex

If replacing the files changed the error messages then this indicates that the files might have been causing this. Look into the files (instead of just uploading new ones) to ensure there are no blank lines or spaces at the bottom.
