Rss not validating
When Mail Chimp pulls the feed to add content to your campaign, it pulls in content as it appears in the feed.
If large images are included, your template width may stretch to the width of the widest image.
The RSS relies on posts in order to work and is the most basic and often the most overlooked resolution.
To test if not having posts is the issue: – Create a test post – Test the feed again (Be sure to clear the cache or use a private browsing window)If you are still receiving an error, make sure that the feed is validated.
When I did that, the service couldn’t pull my feed. So, I went over to the “Troubleshootize” tab on Feedburner and decided to check the “Original Feed Validity” (which uses Feed to do so). Directly below that was my site’s title which showed “High Tech Dad™” with a little red arrow pointing at the “&” (ampersand).
As we mentioned earlier, XML follows a strict syntax and seemingly insignificant things like a blank line or a tab can cause the feed to break and the XML to error out.
While not many people use RSS directly anymore, there are content aggregation sites (like Feedly) that pull in RSS feeds in order to display the content.
I’m not a web developer so the fix was not something immediately apparent to me.
Mail Chimp offers two ways to share blog and website content in your campaigns using RSS (Really Simple Syndication).
RSS Campaigns can be set up to go out daily, weekly, or monthly, and automatically populate your campaign layout with the last batch of items from your RSS feed.
