So RSS on wordpress has been broken for ages now. Every time I add a video or audio sample to the page it’ll break. Also many times I’m using a NON US keyboard/OS/layout or something that’ll break the encoding apparently.
So I added some plugin to create yet another feed with bare minimum content, as again images/media and meta data break RSS.
Otherwise yeah, the whole ‘The internet is only a single program provided by a single company’ really sucks. As much as Id like to move to my own blog platform thing, I don’t have the time to watch it 24x7x365 for security issues, nor do I have enough money to hire a full time team to deal with it.
Hey neozeed… I love your RSS feed, but it still isn’t validating and it breaks in my FreshRSS install:
sigh. then it’s just toally screwed. I have all the features turned off. Oh well.
I’ve no issues with your rss feed…
and it’s pass also the test :
So I’m not sure if you’re using the right feed for your test:p

Have you considered GitLab/GitHub/BitBucket pages? You could just dump raw HTML on there (possibly generated yourself) or have them render Markdown for you. Bonus: You’d have all your content in a git repo.
Downside: You… really need a good idea for comments. Maybe https://commento.io/ paid for with the savings of not having to pay for hosting anymore?
Im too old to be bothered with ‘community guidelines’ and ‘codes of conduct’ for other peoples sites.
I know that hosting on code repositories is all the rage, but it will end just the same way when I started out on blogger.com, which is being caught up in state/corporate censorship and massive outages, along with that realization that you don’t own your data.
I’m not opposed to paying for things as a customer, but to take on my own content management system instead is an endevour, which is a LOT more than I want to pay. So thanks to script kiddies, and so called ‘hackers’ we are contained onto the ranch of corporate surfdom one way or the other.
I trully understand you when you complain about “community guidlines” or “code of conducts”…. that’s why I’ve rent a VPS in germany, and install all by myself…
As main platform, I didn’t choose WordPress (too many bad plugins around), I’ve opted for Drupal mainly because it’s has been created by some random Belgian guys and I’m also from Belgium… 😀
Whatever happens with it, I hope you don’t give up on your RSS feed. It’s the only way I know you update the blog.
Didn‘t have any issue with it since your last fix weeks/month ago (using newsexplorer ios/mac) but that probably doesn‘t mean anything. I can only second this: please don‘t give up. I enjoy reading your blog wherever i am, eg using newsexplorer sitting in the bathtub 😉
hello! last rss-error was in non-standart ” – ” symbol in your in september article. I cann’t find it again, so… thanks you for your rss-news! No RSS – no news about your blog 🙁
RSS has been broken since end of 2022. Any chance it can get fixed?
Ive fixed it a few times but then someone hits it 60,000 times a day so I have to break it.
