I have the following blog on a WordPress site. The RSS feed does not contain a list of the posts. Any thoughts on what is going on?


I noticed that my blog index page was located at http://www.talentheromedia.com/the-recruiting-rundown-blog/ whereas the blog posts path began with http://www.talentheromedia.com/the-recruiting-rundown/ (notice the missing "-blog"). I changed the blog index page to http://www.talentheromedia.com/the-recruiting-rundown/ but it did not fix the feed.

  • Try rebuilding your permalinks. Go to Settings >> Permalinks and click Save which will flush and rebuild them. Also, are these standard WordPress posts, or are they a custom post type? Lastly, if you switch to the default WordPress theme and test, do they show up in your rss feed? Mar 27, 2017 at 15:39
  • @IndustrialThemes I did the Permalinks flush but that did not work. They are standard WP posts. I tested another theme but it made no difference.

Your feed is there. You can check this by opening the source code of your homepage and find these lines:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Talent Hero Media &raquo; Feed" href="http://www.talentheromedia.com/feed/" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Talent Hero Media &raquo; Comments Feed" href="http://www.talentheromedia.com/comments/feed/" />

If you click on the first link you will be led to the source code of the actual location and presto ... there's your feed. Unfortunately, when you run the url .../feed/ you are rerouted to the comments feed. Actually .../comments/feed/ sends your to .../feed/ as well. If you look in the source code of the comments feed you see:

<atom:link href="http://www.talentheromedia.com/the-recruiting-rundown/feed/" rel="self" type="application/rss+xml" />

So, for some reason (presumably a plugin) your comments feed url is overwriting the post feed url. Disable all plugins and switch them on one by one to find the offender.
