XML error in rss feed

I just found out that rss feeds for my forum don't work. If I try to open them I get this error:
error on line 1 at column 6: XML declaration allowed only at the start of the document

I don't know what it could be. You can see an example at this page

I'm using versione of vanilla.

    usually from plugins or php files in themes that have


    as the last line in program.

    just remove it if you see it in the last line.

    disable your plugins one-by one until the feed works or check every file manually.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Thanks @peregrine.
    You addressed the correct problem. But, I needed to add the closing ?> instead of removing it.
