RSS broken on news page



  • Hello,
    I was recently trying to access the rss feed for the news page and it seems to be broken:
    http://swbattlecry.com/news.xml
    At the moment I’m using the rss feed from moddb but was hoping to use the official source rss feed.
    http://rss.moddb.com/games/star-wars-battlecry/news/feed/rss.xml
    Not sure who to contact so figured I would just post.

    Hello, sorry about that. I will look into it and see if I can fix the problem.

    Can you tell me more about the issue you are having? I tested the feed and it seems to be working for me. I used [url=http://feedly.com/#subscription%2Ffeed%2Fhttp%3A%2F%2Fswbattlecry.com%2Fnews.xml]feedly.com[/url] to test it


  • Sorry about the late response.

    Generally Firefox is able to read rss feeds but it force downloads this one. I use Thunderbird as my rss feed reader and it also was having issues parsing it.

    Figuring it was maybe a problem with Firefox/Thunderbird I tried feedburder but was also getting an error “The URL does not appear to reference a valid XML file. We encountered the following problem: Error on line 4: The processing instruction target matching “[xX][mM][lL]” is not allowed.”

    Looking into the syntax of the xml it seems to have an issue:

    I believe it is caused by the three empty lines at the top.
