You know… that Blog?

Is my RSS feed borked again?

Written By: Jenn - Jan• 13•10

If this is showing up in your reader, can you swing by and let me know? My last 2 posts are NOT showing up for me in my reader.

Thanks much!

Note: I turned off Akismet, and up popped the missing posts. It’s probably my theme, according to the helpful folks who haunt the WordPress help forums. No idea how I fix that, but I’ll continue to explore… I’ve turned Akismet back on, but until I figure this out, I’ll turn it off briefly after each post so they’ll “hopefully” show up for you. Hopefully.

    You know my Oh Bearded One, this Beach Boy had a problem with your feed the end of last week. When you sent the interview questions and i sent them back and then you let me knew it was posted nothing showed up in my reader. I use Google Reader. I thought WTF??? I didn’t unsubscribe and I went in and looked and it totally wasn’t in my reader. So I resubscribed, this was late Monday night and it’s been fine ever since…So to make a long story short…what the hell did you do to your URL ROFLMAO!! I’m blaming that whole experience on you. And why bother with Akismet…that’s for your commenting pffft…this beach boy has to teach you everything LOL oH WOW…Now I feel better…WOOT!!! Gotta jet…time to shave :) MWAH!!!!

      Dork. Akismet is on for comment spam, but it’s killing my RSS feed. We suspect a theme issue.

      This “Oh Bearded One” business is going to land you in Hotel Hell, Thom. And I’m the Innkeeper ;)

        ACK….Is that the Bates Hotel? ROFLMAO!!! Okay I don’t understand and this is the Beach Boy coming out in me how in the hell you think that askimet, for comments, can screw up your RSS feed. They, RSS Feed and your Comments left on your blog, are two entirely separete entities the way I look at it. I guess what I don’t understand more so is how it’s killing your RSS feed. Can you enlighten me on this? What I suspect more than anything is your host or something. Have you cleaned up your databases recently?

          It’s most likely a template interaction in regards to their code used for scanning incoming connections (bots used to update RSS feeds), as I understand it, but I have not yet delved into it. Definitely not my host – Crosswinds rocks :)

          It is DEFINITELY an issue with anything I use for this though – as soon as I turned it off, the feeds appeared. But now I know how to get past it – I’ll just turn it off as soon as I post something, wait a few mins, and turn it back on again. A PITA, but until I have time to figure it out (or change themes, which I don’t feel like doing) dat’s the way it is.
