RSS feed errorResolved
Hey there! Have you noticed this support service is provided FREE of charge?

I use Mustang Lite since 2015.
Since last Friday, I have a problem of RSS feed error.
I analyzed myself with W3C Feed Validation Service, they said there is bad character(s).
this character is � and this � appeared at the end of the excerpt (not every topics).
Hereby the result:
I tried everything I could (for example, add ob_end_clean(); to feed-rss2.php & feed-rss2-comments.php,
also add to link href=”http://bruxelles-bxl.com/feed/” title=”RSS” type=”application/rss+xml” rel=”alternate”> to header.php.
But I couldn’t delete this problem.
I think I had the same problem before and you solved it.
And also, at the same time, the preview doesn’t work any more.
Curiously, it works after posting the topics.
I have no idea to solve this problem.
Could you help me?

Please note that the theme does not modify the RSS feed in any way.
The issues seems to be related to excerpt “more” character. The theme replaces the WordPress default “[…]” with pure “…”. On your website there seems to be some additional character added before the excerpt more that’s causing issues not only in your website RSS but also in your website.
I can see you are using a. Please check your code to make sure the issue is not coming from there.
Or maybe you are using some plugin that’s causing the issue?
You can even use of Health Check plugin to trace and resolve the issue.
If none of the above helps, I suggest contacting WordPress support for help regarding question about non-UTF8 characters added to your website excerpts.
PS: I don’t remember dealing with RSS in support, and you can view all your past support ticket in your user profile page.22 Mar 2019 at 09:41 #20889

I found a plugin Advanced Excerpt Options that you installed last year, I didn’t touch this plugin, but the except length has changed 320 instead about 100 (I forgot how long it was).
It is strange!
I modified 110 hoping to disappear the �, but they are always there…
How I can delete this �?
As I told you, I didn’t add any strange character.

Yourfiles seems to be OK. However:
There is no need for adding support for RSS as the theme already does that. You can remove:
add_theme_support('automatic-feed-links'); add_action( 'wp_head', 'feed_links');
However, � appeared after adding these lines.
In that case this is the issue. Just delete those lines :)
Also, there is no need to edit/override the
header.phpfile. And I actually can’t see any change in your file. Please delete that file from your .

I’ve installed the plugin to resolve your previous issue. But maybe the plugin is causing this issue? If that’s so, just disable the plugin.
Like I’ve mentioned in my previous reply, please use Health Check plugin’s to see if the issue is coming from a theme or a plugin.
Please understand this issue is not related to the theme. I can only provide you with tips to resolve the issue.22 Mar 2019 at 17:36 #20893
