feed.rss not found on this server !!!

Post by Sendlingur »

I'm implementing a RSS feed to my page.

I always get 404 not found when I click the link to the page.
I'm totally lost here and I have tried to do all fixes that I have thought of.

I'm using the News module and in general this is working but when I add ".rss" to the page alias I get the 404.

below is a sample of my code.
Can anyone help me with this?

I followed this tutorial from Rolfs great site https://cmscanbesimple.org/blog/create- ... t-a-module


This is the UDT:

Code: Select all

$content_type = get_parameter_value($params,'type');
if ($content_type != '') {cmsms()->set_content_type($content_type);}
Here is a news_summary template called "rssfeed"

Code: Select all

<rss version="2.0" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
<channel>
<atom:link href="{root_url}/index.php?page=feed" rel="self" type="application/rss+xml" />
<title>{sitename}</title>
<link>{root_url}/index.php?page=feed.rss"</link>
<description>RSS demo</description>
<copyright>cR</copyright>
<generator>CMS Made Simple</generator>

{foreach from=$items item=entry}
  <item>
    <title>{$entry->title|escape}</title>
    <description>{strip}
      {eval var=$entry->summary|default:$entry->content|strip_tags:false|escape|strip|truncate:400}
    {/strip}</description>
    <guid>{$entry->link}"></guid>
    <link>{$entry->more_url}</link>
    <pubDate>{$entry->postdate|date_format:"%d.%m.%Y"}</pubDate>
  </item>
{/foreach}

</channel>
</rss>

This is the link to the rss feed. I' have changed the self_link tag to "id" but still I get the 404

Code: Select all

<li><a class="s" id="rss-feed" title="To RSS" href="{cms_selflink href=71}">RSS</a></li>
And in the content page 'alias' I have named the page " feed.rss"


My code is working if I change the 'alias' from 'feed.rss' to 'feed'

but when I add ".rss" to the page alias I get the 404.
The .rss should not be added to the page alias but the "page URL" field!

No I don't have pretty urls installed.

it was an cache issue. it is working now.

I still have the feed.rss in the alias and the feed is working.

where can I find the "page URL" field under Options? I only see "page alias"?

You won't see the page url field when you don't have pretty urls enabled, because it requires pretty urls in order to function.
Not getting the answer you need? CMSMS support options
