    Hey guys.
    when I add RSS 1-9 to sidebar and edit that to show rss links, that say Error: could not find an RSS or ATOM feed at that URL. and not added to side bar.

    Sorry I can’t speak English ;)

    Which URL are you using? For your own blog you should use http://kamiarn.wordpress.com/feed

    You need to find the feed related to the specific site.
    CNN Top Stories feed is this:
    http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_topstories.rss
    Place the URL in the proper place within the widget and you should be good to go.
    In the upper right hand corner of the CNN page it says “RSS Feeds”
    Every feed they offer is right there.
    It essentially works the same way on other sites as well.
    Hope that helps.

    thank you very much, I can’t impart intent…
    see this example.
    1-go to widgets in presentation menu.
    2-drag and drop RSS 1-9 to sidebar.
    3-enter my feed url ex(http://del.icio.us/rss/kamiar).
    4-click on Save Changes button.
    5-the feed not shown in my blog (http://kamiarn.wordpress.com)
    6-go to widgets again.
    7-click on entered feed properties. in the top box wrote : Error: could not find an RSS or ATOM feed at that URL.

    this problem is on all feeds! I can’t belief all feeds on internet are rotten!! 8-(

    This is not a theme dependent issue. Look at your (5) above
    5-the feed not shown in my blog (http://kamiarn.wordpress.com)
    your feed is http://kamiarn.wordpress.com/feed

    If you want feed to news services like CNN for example then they look like these – click the link http://www.cnn.com/services/rss/ and look at them please.

    The RSS widget is flaky if the feed doesn’t validate.

    Try using feedvalidator.org on the URL before using it in a widget.

    I’ve found a trick where I create a FeedBurner feed of a feed that doesn’t validate, and then I can use it in a widget. http://feedburner.com

    1. take feed that doesn’t validate
    2. log into feedburner.com and burn a new feed based on the RSS url from #1
    3. add the feedburner RSS url from #2 as a sidebar widget

    PS: If you want to show your delicious bookmarks, just use the delicious widget instead of the RSS widget.

    you still haven’t given us any URLs of feeds you have tried. Please paste the URLs that aren’t working here, so we can perhaps see what is wrong.

    I have no problems with the various feeds I’ve used. I use the actual del.icio.us widget instead of the direct feed, so I can’t say anything about that one. But, I do have my Flickr feed in a regular RSS widget. It’s working just fine. I had experimented with other feeds and never had a problem with them. Here’s my Flickr feed that works without error:

    http://api.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne?id=67264698%40N00&lang=en-us&format=rss_200

    Paste that as the address in one of your RSS blocks and see if it gives you an error.

    I clicked them all.

    All of them except the feedburner one added to Google Reader just fine.

    I have Firefox set up to automatically take a feed URL and redirect it to Google Reader.

    The feedburner one just pop up the page. So it might not be a RSS feed. I don’t know enough about feedburner to tell you.
