RSS2 & Atom extension errors in Vanilla release 1

edited July 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Salutations and thanks in advance for the support. I had no problem the Atom feed extension in prior releases but in release Vanilla 1 I am receiving errors with both the RSS2 and Atom feed links. Thes error message is the same for each and follows: === XML Parsing Error: xml declaration not at start of external entity Location: http://www.sitename.com/vanilla/?Feed=RSS2 Line Number 2, Column 1:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> ^ ===

    Which other extensions do you have enabled? I know that looks just like the error someone else got after enabling both Atom and the Category Colour Changer extension. Discussion here.

    If you don't have the Category Colour Changer enabled, I don't know, but I am guessing it's some other extension that's putting a blank line at the beginning of your feeds.

    Did you upgrade the extensions after you upgraded your board? I'm pretty sure that those extensions were in the list of extensions Mark upgraded after v1 was done.

    bjrn, that was it exactly what it was. must've copied over category colour changer and enabled, thinking it was compatible as well. thanks for the catch. all best wishes, punch.

    Hi. Thanks for all these discussion, they have helped me a lot already. I having a little trouble with Atom and RSS2 and their styling. The feed comes up as raw html, starts with the feed tag, and there is also this error message: <This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it.The document tree is shown below> Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I have several extensions enabled: Account Pictures, Attachments, Newsmailer, Vanillacons, Comment Removal, Guest Sign In, NewsMailer and Html Formatter.

    The feeds aren't meant to be styled are they...?

    You can style feeds for viewing in a browser by using an xml stylesheet. The "error" that Jojo gets is simply Firefox's (I assume Firefox as it will always tell you where as IE won't) way of telling you that the feed has no stylesheet associated with it. There appears to be several extensions that include whitespace before the first line which causes the parsing error as I found out with Audioscrobbler.

    Great! I do believe MethCat is right, as the problem is fixed with the removal of spurious white space. I'm using Soulscape Blue as the style and without it the RSS and Atom was a mess! Thanks guys.
