Groups Activity RSS Feed Broken

  • akukskuks


    From the Activity menu I have no problems subscribing to an RSS feed of “All Members” activity, but the RSS link under “My Groups” redirects me to my profile page (Activity –> Groups). I see that other people are having similar problems with RSS feeds but can’t seem to find a solution in any of the threads. How can I fix this?

    All Members link points to: mydomain/activity/feed
    My Groups link points to: mydomain/members/user/activity/group/feed

    I’m having same problem, driving me absolutely nutty and hardly a thin gout there about how to fix it. I’m quite desperate for a solution. My feeds from my buddypress install work on other sites outside of buddypress, sometimes

    it seems to change all the time

    Additionally sometimes when adding the feed url wordpress adds in /activity/ into the feed url without asking 🙂 feeds that work one minute don’t the next



    For further reference this is the error I get with group feeds

    RSS Error: A feed could not be found at A feed with an invalid mime type may fall victim to this error, or SimplePie was unable to auto-discover it.. Use force_feed() if you are certain this URL is a real feed.



    Yes @nomad-one, mine are starting to have mood swings as well. Fickle things!! The individual group feeds I had feeding into my reader have stopped working, and now can’t get any more valid feeds registered at all from the site. Just can’t figure out what to do…

    Question: do the WP RSS feeds on your dashboard work?

    Sounds like maybe there’s some structural BP issues here? I’m equally as desperate to get these to work…how can we figure this out? Or are we S.O.L. until the next BP update??



    Update: bad news! Now when I try to get my site-wide activity RSS:

    XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
    Location: http://mysite/activity/feed/
    Line Number 1, Column 2: <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>

    Any advice please?



    @akukskuks WP/BP versions? What theme are you using? What plugins are installed?



    WP 3.5.1
    BP 1.8.1
    BP Default Theme

    Admin Bar Disabler
    Bp Force Profile
    BuddyPress Activity Stream Hashtags
    BuddyPress Group Email Subscription
    BuddyPress Group Extras
    Erident Custom Login and Dashboard
    Ultimate TinyMCE

    Would updating WP to 3.6 help solve this problem?

    Also, I did try activating a plugin that I realized was not optimized for BP (WP-only). Could that have been the problem?
