Back in 2010 I wrote a nifty little article about fixing this pesky WordPress RSS error (WordPress Remove Blank Line From RSS Feed – wordpress error on line 2 at column 6: XML declaration allowed only at the start of the document) and how to fix it. Since that time, there have been a lot of comments, and for the majority of people it fix works. For some, sadly it doesn't. The “error on line 2 at column 6” is a rather tricky one, and I talk about why a little bit in the video. If someone who reads this is a core WP dev and can shed some light on the real cause of this, we'd all much appreciate it. 🙂
The video above goes above:
- How to implement the fix I wrote about, step by visual step. This has helped bunch of people already.
- A second option to try if the first fix doesn't work.
- And a 3rd, and fourth and a firth potential solution.
- But you're probably not going to like the potential #4 and #5 solutions.
Check the video out for video instruction on how to implement the WordPress RSS fix that works for most people and then let me know if it worked out for you … or not.
