Fixing Compatibility Issues

February 7th, 2005 by Steve Pavlina

A big thank you to James Shaw for helping me discover and fix a long-time compatibility issue between WordPress and Newsgator. I’ve known about this problem since shortly after this site launched but hadn’t understood quite how to fix it, since the problem wasn’t directly with the RSS feed itself. Some online feed validators showed no errors while others failed to validate the feed. It turned out to be caused by a single-character typo in one of the original WordPress files that was sending an incorrect header, and it’s now fixed. So if you wanted to subscribe to this blog via Newsgator but couldn’t, you should be able to do so now. Thanks, James! And also a big thanks to everyone else who gave me suggestions on various ideas to try along the way.

Next on my site maintenance agenda is to fix the compatibility issue between this site and the Firefox web browser. In Firefox the right sidebar displays at the bottom of each page, and the top menu is graphically messed up. This isn’t a problem with the blog — it occurs on every page of this site. It seems to be some kind of CSS alignment issue. The site currently looks fine in IE and in NetCaptor, so I need to make sure that any fix doesn’t break the display in other browsers.
