My RSS feeds are broken. It seems that there is a blank line on top of each rss file. I tried it with all themes without result. How and where can i remove the first blank line?
Here's a sample: http://ghbnee.nl/feed/qa.rss
You have not a blank line but some bytes echoed before the content of most of your pages :
rss page :
home page :
the bytes are : \ufeff , also know as BOM
you can also test your pages with this utility to see its presence :
Usually it's generated by windows editors (but it could also be echoed programmatically by your code...) and used to mark a page as utf8.
It should be invisible, but it also originates issues sometimes ( http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-byte-order-mark )
Check with your developers for the reason of its presence in the qa-include\qa-feed.php;
in fact the http response header "Content-type" to this http request http://ghbnee.nl/feed/qa.rss is
(check line 291 of qa-feed.php)
I think that not using the BOM in this case could be ok...
