Feed won't validate

  1. I recently came across an issue with my blog feed. It doesn't validate when checking with http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fiqatrophie.wordpress.com

    It tells me:
    Invalid character in a URI: '"'

    What does it mean? What can I do to fix this error?

    I checked different other wordpress.com feeds which all validate correctly. So it must be s.th within my code. But I can't find it. All blogs use '"' within their URIs and feedvalidator doesn't complain about it.
    Feedvalidator points at a line </div>]]></content:encoded> and lists the error message about the invalid character mentioned above.

    Anyone here that can help? Where's the mistake?

    The problem could be on Feed Validator's end. I just checked your feed through WordPress.com and it's up to date.

    I meant to say I checked your feed at http://iqatrophie.wordpress.com/ and it's up to date.

  4. Thanks mymyspacelayouts,

    I agree with you. It might be something on Feed Validator's end. I recently checked my feed with the official W3C Validator under http://validator.w3.org/feed/ and it says my feed is valid.

    So thanks again for testing it. Good to know from someone else that it's still working. :)
