    Broken RSS Feed

    Please advise why the general RSS feed does not work for this site.

    In IE, I just get an error message saying "Feed Code Error - Internet Explorer cannot display this feed".

    But in Firefox I get this more descriptive error:
    Code:
    XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
    Location: http://www.oursitegoeshereblahblahlblah.com/feed/
    Line Number 5, Column 1:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><rss version="2.0"
    ^
    Please advise. Thanks in advance.

    If I view source, it looks like there are some blank lines above the first line. Try removing them and see if that helps. I suspect that's what "XML or text declaration not at start of entity" is telling you.
