I give up, it just won’t post… but you understand what I mean, I hope?
I found another post that solved my issue. all is well.
To have code show up here in the forums, you have to paste it between backticks ( ` ) which is on the key with the ~ on it typically to the left of the #1 key.
I’m still having issues related to subscriptions to my blog:
The little orange RSS icon now displays in my sidebar. However, when people click on the icon, they get the message “the dorn blog >> Page not found”. At the bottom of the message there is a link that says “Subscribe to this feed” but if you click on it, all you get is the heading “the dorn blog >> Page not found” and my “Gravatar”, but no articles… and this doesn’t seem to change after I post a new blog entry.
This is so frustrating… what the heck am I still doing wrong?
This is your feed http://thedornblog.wordpress.com/feed/
Link the icon to the feed url.
HOW DO I DO THAT?
Note: Look at the post above from ellaella on June 8th at 9:49 PM… it shows what’s in the text widget. To me, the feed url you mention is already there.
I’m having the same problem with mjdorn, however, when I click on his feed some of his posts are now showing up.
here are the details:
<a href="matthewkerrphotography.wordpress.com/feed/"><img src="http://matthewkerrphotography.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/feed-icon-14x14.png"></a><a href="matthewkerrphotography.wordpress.com/feed/"> Subscribe with a reader</a></code>
@mjdorn I see what’s happening with your blog
it’s the same problem that @nevadawier was having.
I just changed mine which didn’t have the http part of the link in and it’s working
go over your html in the text widget and post it here between backtick marks
@mjdorn here’s what I found in your source code for your widget
<a bitly="BITLY_PROCESSED" href="thedornblog.wordpress.com/feed">
you can remover bitly=”BITLY_PROCESSED”
and then you must add http:// before thedorn….
or remove thedornblog.wordpress.com and just have /feed
see if that works!
I added the http:// to the widget and it appears to work. Thanks.
I’m cautiously optimistic.
this link worked for me the very first time I used it, and i’m no whizkid.
