One Digital Life RSS

Today a reader told me he was having trouble reading my RSS feed in NewsFire. I always use NetNewsWire, and everything worked so I though everything was fine. After some digging I found some bugs in the feed. The biggest was actually a bug in WordPress, my blogging system. It involves a space between two words in the php. If you’ve had a similar problem with WordPress, it can be fixed by replacing line 87 of wp-blog-header.php with “@header(‘Last-Modified: ‘.$wp_last_modified);”. The key change is adding the “-” between the words “Last” and “Modified”. By default there is a space, instead of a dash.

Everything seems to be working fine now, so if you’ve had a problem reading my feed, try accessing it again. Thanks Nate!
