FINALLY!!! I’m just so happy to be able to fix my XML Parsing Error. I experienced that error since late 2009 I think and I’m on the search on how to solve it. Here’s what to do if ever you encountered this error:
XML parsing error: <unknown>:1406:0: junk after document element [help]<html>
I don’t know if this is similar with all blog hosts like Blogger, Xanga, etc. I’m using WordPress so this specifically worked for me. Anyway, to elaborate kindly see image below:
The HTML below the “/rss” code is not a valid XML structure. If you go to FEED VALIDATOR to validate your rss feeds, you’ll see the error on the first image. If you click on the help, they will give you a summarized information on what error is it and how to solve it. Unfortunately, the info is not enough for someone who is not that knowledgeable in XML and WordPress better yet no programming skills.
Since I’m rebuilding my blogs and soon to be other blogs, I’m trying to clean, update and fix errors that used to be my problem for some time now. The main error I’m encountering is the RSS Feed. If you notice, you can’t subscribe to my blog since it will give you an error. So I disabled it until I solve the issue. Fortunately today, after reading a number of solutions with almost the same problem as mine that is not applicable to me, I found the solution! Thank you for WordPress Support for helping people solve their issues in wordpress.
A problem with a title “Integration into existing site, RSS not parsing” solved my problem. Thanks to Robert_ITman who shared his expertise on this.
SOLUTION: Add < ?php die; ?> after in the files: /wp-includes/feed-rss2.php and feed-rss2-comments.php
I remembered I integrated Blogger to WordPress early on. I didn’t even bother to think that it might cause the problem. All the while I was searching on XML Parse Error which totally didn’t give me the right solutions. Now I learned that when searching solutions in the net, you don’t have to stick on the topic alone. You have to be resourceful enough and a little analytical to see where the problem is.
Oh well, enough for the technicality. You can now subscribe to my blog thru RSS.
