RSS feed reader not reading

I’m using the basic tag in the head:

<txp:feed_link flavor="rss" format="link" section="stories" label="RSS" />

And in the footer:

<txp:feed_link flavor="rss" section="stories" label="RSS" title="All the stories." />

And this should be a working feed as result: https://fullpoint.wion.com/rss/?section=stories

But my reader can’t seem to pick it up.

I thought this might be the culprit in the .htaccess file, but commenting it out does nothing:

# Blocks access to directories without a default document.
# Ex: index.html, index.php ...

<IfModule mod_autoindex.c>
    Options -Indexes
</IfModule>

Any ideas ?

Re: RSS feed reader not reading

Hang on, I’ll look at this closer. I seem to have the tag constructed badly, maybe.

Okay, I was missing the section="" attribute, but now it’s added and the feed is still not being picked up. Head posted updated with current status.

Thoughts?

Re: RSS feed reader not reading

I’m not using section/title URLs, in fact, but this doesn’t work either in that case…

https://fullpoint.wion.com/rss/

It’s got to be some viper staring me in the eyes.

Re: RSS feed reader not reading

It’s serving it… sort of. My browser offers to download it and the file seems valid when I look at the source of the downloaded XML doc (https://fullpoint.wion.com/rss). Same with the atom feed (https://fullpoint.wion.com/atom).

But Paparazzi won’t view it (mind you, Paparazzi doesn’t read the one on my site either, so I’ve long given up on that puppy).

What’s more strange is that the Feed validator claims there isn’t one on your site. Or at least, thinks it’s a web page rather than a feed. Baffling.

Re: RSS feed reader not reading

I’m using a big .htaccess file, most of which is bad robot blocking. Something I’ve never done in the past. I need to whittle out some of the comments, but not until I get a better feel for it.

But something in there might be making things strange.

Here’s everything running besides the robots blocking:

Any comments about that in general are welcome, as I’m not really a server wizard.

Cleaned up that htaccess stuff a bit. Should be easier to scan.

Re: RSS feed reader not reading

I’ve had reports from others that they can use the feed fine. But It still doesn’t work when I try to put it in a reader I use. Damned if I know why.

Another one of those, ‘hugh, good thing it’s not critical’ issues. As long as it works for others, that’s the critical part.
