WordPress bug

OK, tech amigos. A very helpful reader pointed out (rather ironically, given my day job) that my archive of RSS posts is busted. Why? Because WordPress is hard-wired to render anything that ends in “/rss” as a feed… even though, in this case, the category is RSS, it’s seeing “/rss” as an operator on the technology category (I’ve set “technology” up as the parent category to RSS).

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?


  1. How about changing the name of your RSS category to something slightly different, such as "About RSS"?

    I just went and looked at my own Dashboard, and Editing a Category does two things: the name shown to all, and the Category slug. I think it's the slug you want to name. Change it to /on-rss/ or something. See if that doesn't help.

  2. Susan -

    You rule! That totally did the trick.

    Further proof that my readers are waaaaay smarter than me... thanks so much!


  3. cool. glad to help. Heh, you work at feedburner? I only just recently created my first feedburner feed .... small world and all that!
