Okay - I went with livewithrichard's RSS feed suggestion at beta.feedvalidator.org and when I plugged in my site, it said it was valid BUT....these 3 things came up - Do I fix those or click on the bottom line which says to create a new text link that they suggest? Or do I just do it anyhow with the 3 lines of text askew? I'm sorry - swimming head here! Must have been the knocks on the pavements running the dogs!
This feed is valid, but interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations.
line 229, column 44: description contains bad characters (4 occurrences) [help]
Backpacking with your dog andÂ having your DOG carry a backpa ... ^line 230, column 175: content:encoded contains bad characters (4 occurrences) [help]
... go!" /> Backpacking with your dog andÂ having your DOG carry a backpa ... ^line 390, column 0: Missing atom:link with rel="self" [help]
If it says valid it can be used in most feed readers and website widgets etc. What the suggestion does is lets you improve it so it can be read by more feed readers.
I sometimes validate feeds but only If I create a custom feed my self. Whats the feed you are trying to validate ? If its a hub pages feed there isn't much you can do about it.
If it says valid I personally wouldn't worry about fixing the suggestions.
You only need to use the validator for sites other than hubs. All of your hubs have a valid RSS feed and you only need to place ?rss at the end of your hub's url. The ?rss at the end of your hub's url will make the url a valid RSS feed for that hub.
Thank you Richard - you must become my new guru - I will cook for you!

It would be a nice addition to have the RSS capsule come pre-loaded with our default feed address as an option. I always forget mine and have to navigate to my profile and back to the hub in progress to get the correct address. It would get rid of an inconvenience.Also, it would be nice to have a...

What is a valid RSS feed, and how do we get it to work on our Articles?
by Savio Koman 5 years ago
My subdomain graded by a RSS feed site - Feedage.com, shows a great grade. So, the question is can we place the grade on our subdomain, which I would have normally been able to do, if I had my own site? What is the take of more knowledgeable hubbers and HP staff on this?
