WordPress 2.0.6 feedburner issue

The notification e-mails from FeedBurner stopped coming a few days ago. Then realized they stopped on the day I upgraded to WordPress 2.0.6. It was most likely not a coincidence.

I typed up a question in the FeedBurner forums to ask if anyone knew what the problem might be, and then, as I often do, thought I should investigate the issue a little more on my own first. I found the Feedburner FeedMedic under the Troubleshootize section that shows you any errors that have occurred with your feed. There was one that kept repeating:

FeedBurner had trouble retrieving your Source Feed: http://dan.hersam.com/feed/atom/

The error message is: Your server disconnected us before sending the full source feed content. If your blogging platform is TextPattern, this is a known bug, and a fix can be found here: http://forum.textpattern.com/viewtopic.php?id=11247

That looked suspect, but it didn’t mention WordPress so I went to the WordPress forums and found this issue, which had a link to a fix from Mark Jaquith, a WordPress developer.

The fix is in functions.php which you can download from Mark’s site.

If you’re getting this post via e-mail from your FeedBurner subscription, then it worked.





  1. Hey Dan,

    Sounds like you got the fix in. Glad you found the FeedMedic (which is subscribable) as it’s a great way to dissect any troubles you’re having. We’re always here to help publishers, so if the forums aren’t getting back to you quick enough, don’t hesitate to give us a shout at publishers@feedburner.com.

  3. He’s the same guy who created WordPress Tuneup. I was planning to upgrade to 2.0.6 this weekend – thanks for the pointer to the fix!

  4. One and the same. I saw him at wordcamp and he seems like a smart chap. He’s done a lot for WordPress.
