Feed / rss does not generate xml files, setting problem or a joomla bug

Post by infermieri » Sun Jul 03, 2022 8:54 am

Greetings
in my site I have activated the fedd/rss for the categories.
Sindycation module indicates a link and feed readers see the same link ending with .feed?type=rss instead of .html.

The problem is that the link ending .feed?type=rss with does not generate an xml file and sends me back to the category web page.

In the home page Sndycation module inserts in the final part "/?format=feed&type=rss" of the link and the feed loads correctly.
https://www. miosito.it/?format=feed&type=rss
If I add to the category ?format=feed&type=rss then the xml file is generated, but it is not found by the feed / rss readers
I don't understand if it's a setting problem or a joomla bug?

Thanks

Works fine.

Yes on the home page of the site it works well
The problem is in the categories, example:
https://www.infermieriattivi.it/1-forma ... d?type=rss
if instead I add manually ?format=feed&type=rss works well
https://www.infermieriattivi.it/1-forma ... d&type=rss

The link is wrong. Are you using any SEF extension?

It works if you disable the .html suffix in the SEF settings.

I am having a similar problem when testing on my site with Joomla's module. Something is not right.

FF wants to download a file that has no extension. Chrome works OK

Something not working correctly

I am not using a sef extension
I use route66, google structured data and jsitemap, I have checked the settings and it doesn't seem to me that nobody affects the links.
If in global configuration I disable the "url suffix" Sindycation module gives me the right link.
Unfortunately I cannot disable it because after all the indexed pages become 404.

I can confirm that enabling the suffix, do result in a URL ending with ".feed". This link does not work.

File a bug report in the tracker. https://issues.joomla.org/
