  5. Thanks for the links. The issue seems to be neither with HTTPS or with Atom feeds, as I can have feeds with either option work, though I can confirm these two feeds aren't working.

    When done, please don't forget to amend your support page as it currently states:

  8. Will do. Thanks for the reminder :-)
