RSS Feed Return Webpage
I'm attempting to access feeds off a forum and have them display them on a website. Thus allowing the admins of the forum to create a news category and have the discussions also posted on their website. I have been able to access the feeds by the link which is provided on the forum.
The problem is when I try to run that link in an aggregator or validate it. The returned message while using W3 validation service is "It looks like this is a web page, not a feed." and sure enough it will return an HTML document; however, a similar feed link such as the one below will validate, but it won't display any of the topics/discussion inside nor do these show up in the XML.
One more aspect of this problem (as if it couldn't get any more confusing), is when I run the first link in my browser. What is returned is a nicely formatted XML document.
I know there have been many questions regarding the use of RSS with Vanilla forums, but I'm stumped and I haven't been able to find any topics which address this issue. If there is any other information I can provide, let me know. Any help or suggests you guys have are greatly appreciated.
- I have checked the PHP using: https://www.dokuwiki.org/tips:findbadphp.php
- I'm running Version 2.1.11 of Vanilla forums
- I have tried using the http://community.portal2abyss.com/discussions/feed.rss (it will only return one discussion with the aggregator regardless of how many items are in the XML)
- The aggregator I've tried using is http://jquery-plugins.net/FeedEk/FeedEk.html
