Empty RSS feed.xml

Jan 6, 2010 at 7:03 PM

I have uploaded a few mp3 files to PKS successfully. 

However, when I tried to access the RSS feed by clicking on the RSS icon link I received a file with only the following line.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Do I need to change some configurations to make RSS work?

Please advise.

Verify web.config of your site.

under <appSettings>

<add key="FeedXsl1" value="/Style Library/Xsl Style Sheets/Rss.xsl" />

<add key="FeedXsl2" value="/Style Library/Xsl Style Sheets/ZuneRss.xsl" />
<add key="FeedXsl3" value="/Style Library/Xsl Style Sheets/PKSRss.xsl" />

These 3 entries should be present. If not just add them.

Hope this solves your problem.

I added the FeedXsl2 and FeedXsl3 key to the web.config file and the RSS file was generated correctly. Thanks, Jeff!

In order to playback the media under JW player, I modified the PKSRss.xsl to remove "?mode=Play-Subscription" from the Enclosure URL. Not sure if this will cause any issues in the future, but it is working now.

As permy observations this value is stored in Ratingstore DB. Dont know if it is used in site any where?

MAy be this added to track download source(detail page, RSS, etc).
