Rss And/or Mysql Error

Recommended Posts

Ladies and gentlemen,

 

My RSS feeds are not working properly (try to subscribe), and I see a MySQL error shown in the sidebar.

 

I'm clueless how to fix either. I'm googling, so don't think I'm expecting you guys to spoon-feed me. :tchrocks:

 

Just thought I'd come in and ask for help while I'm looking.

Hokay, I played a little and by restoring my old .htaccess file, the RSS feeds work, but the MySQL error remains and the template does not display properly.

 

With no .htaccess (deleting it from /), the template works fine, but RSS and the MySQL error are persistent.

 

I think I've narrowed it down, Watson.

The MySQL error is your LINKS section and not your RSS feeds I believe. Wordpress changed how the links are queried. Check with the theme designer for an update.

Bruce, you are correct-a-mundo. I swear I ignore the obvious 99.9% of the time. It was the first thing on the designer's blog.

 

I just need to replace wp_get_links with wp_list_bookmarks. Notepad should be okay to make the edit, right? I know Word adds a bunch of extra formatting poo.

 

 

Now if I can track down my RSS matter, I'll be back up to speed I think.

 

I wouldn't be worried about this, but it seems my traffic has gone through the roof all of a sudden.

You can edit the file using FileManager in cPanel or use Notepad on your computer an upload it.

 

What is wrong with your RSS feed? I've never had an issue with RSS feeds in Wordpress.

Click on it. I get a 404. I vaguely remember having to edit it waaaaaaaaay back when because it points to something incorrectly, but I don't remember where or how.

 

I guess that's what bookmarks are for, huh?

 

 

EDIT: Apparently the theme points to the wrong place for the feeds, it's not WP. I'm going to poke and see if I can figure out how to fix it. If you can tell me how to get it, I'm more than willing to listen.

 

 

EDIT #2: Apparently this is something to do with me using custom Permalinks. Still researching.

 

 

EDIT #3: I GOT IT!!! It was something in Permalinks that I just needed to copy and paste to the .htaccess and upload. Thank you so much for your help, and hopefully this saves some other person some pain!

The link to Wordpress feeds for entries is

 

>http://your-blog-address/feed/

 

It should not contain Feed: in front of it as yours does.

Sure, just when I'm excited everything is working....

 

I'm now looking into how to fix that....

 

 

EDIT: Okay, it was really easy, just remove "feed:" from the href in sidebar.php. Is it very hard to add the Atom and other RSS types as links there?

I don't use Atom feeds so I don't know the answer to that one. And both the regular and categories regular RSS feeds should work of you remove the feed: from each.

 

Check the support forum over at Wordpress. You might find an answer there.

Nope, that's not hard at all.

><a href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> Atom 0.3 Feed">Atom Feed</a>
<a href="<?php bloginfo('rss_url'); ?>" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> RSS 0.92 Feed">RSS 0.92 Feed</a>
<a href="<?php bloginfo('rdf_url'); ?>" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> RDF/RSS 1.0 Feed">RDF/RSS 1.0 Feed</a>

 

Of course, you'll want to adjust that as required to match your theme and your tastes.

Rather than start a new thread, I'll see if I can get an answer by reviving this one.

 

Can anyone give me a direct download link to PodPress? I plan to start podcasting soon, and I've read it adds to the ease of setup.

 

Unfortunately, the site to d/l it from is blocked by the work filter. Most anything else is allowed (including FTP), but not access to that site.

That is exactly what I am looking for, o master of wordpress. Unfortunately, the wonderful proxy denies access to that as well.

 

Perhaps I will have to wait 2 hours for lunch and then d/l and install from here after.
