I have tried to edit two RSS capsule on one Hub and in edit mode they show results as expected but as soon as I hit the "done editing" button the message comes up "this does not appear to be a valid RSS feed." One of the feeds is simply a copy of the "subscribe to tonymac's rss feed." Other Hubs seem not to have this problem. The affected Hub is http://hubpages.com/hub/The-myth-of-the … 1-May-1910
Hope someone can help.
Did you preview it before leaving the capsule?
Yes and both showed the expected results. The results disappeared when I went out of edit mode.
That is odd... (I am no expert, I have left my RSS feed capsule without previewing and cursed it for not working gone back in and realised I forgot a step...) You know sometimes the most simpliest answer sorry it wasn't in this case.
Problem seems to have gone! Deleting the offending capsule and making a new one seems to have done the trickj!
I know this isn't much help you to Tony, but I too have come across this problem recently on some of my own hubs.
The feed works perfectly in edit mode but not in publish mode, and its only on some hubs! Others are fine.
Wonder if it's a bug?
I've had this happen to me on several occasions. I think it just means that the RSS feed hadn't been generated yet. Maybe that's a bad choice of words...
If I create an RSS feed using "latest," I would quite often get that same exact error. As soon as I changed it to "hot," it worked just fine. Over a period of time, I was able to go back and change "hot" to "latest."
Note to self: Have at least one cup of coffee before posting on the forums.
Good Morning Irohner! I am about to go to bed and had enough caffiene but you do seem to make sense here!!
Good morning to you too. I was just reading your post about Ask.com (grats, btw) where you were saying that traffic is the lifeblood of hubs. My head immediately changed "traffic" to "caffeine." Sigh...
Yes you do! Read it later you will agree!!
Ha ha... Yes I am a caffiene addict too!! I would totally agree!! can't function without the stuff... but traffic is also good!! Yeah, I noticed I had hits on a hub that has been published a while and wanted to see where the traffic came from it was ask.com 2x!! Also I got a hit from google.fi -- which by the way my English hubs do extremely well in!! So I will continue to do my travel ones!! ha ha!!
Caffiene is very important!! I hope you follow my flow!!
I've already had too many LOL!
I'm not sure what you mean by RSS not being generated yet. It's after all the same the feed that I use on other Hubs? I'm not great at this stuff - still learning.
Will go back to the particular Hub now and see if anything has chnaged!
Deleted one RSS capsule and now the one left behind is working! Why? Have no idea but anyway will stick with the one.
Thanks all for commenting!
I'm not sure if the RSS feed being "generated" was the right word to use. (Again, insufficient caffeine...) I just know that sometimes the "latest" won't work for me, but the "hot" and "best" will.
Okay, now back to...

I'm trying to understand RSS feeds. I think the capsule is a reader that aggreates feeds from other websites, but I'm not sure

I'm studying lately how to drive more traffic to my hubs, since I noticed my page views did not increase though I published more articles. So I study how to promote my hubs, and I went to RSS feeds. I now find out what...

For some reason I can't figure out how to get an rss feed for certain keywords from my hubs. I know it is most likely a simple thing I am missing, but would appreciate a little advice please.

I recently had a hub unpublished by HubPages because “Unrelated links or products”. First time I have come across one of these. I read and re-read my hub several times. Every single one of the links was related to...
