Redirecting to RSS feeds in 2.0.1 does not work
|Reported by:||nehrlich||Owned by:||anonymous|
I upgraded to WP2.0.1 recently and now I can't get my old feed redirections to work.
I copied the RewriteRule (RewriteRule index.xml(.*)? /blog/?feed=rss2 [QSA]) from the Codex (http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Feeds) into my .htaccess file and that doesn't work - it sends me to the normal blog home page (index.php) instead.
I tried using the suggested Feed Director plugin (http://boren.nu/archives/2005/03/29/feed-director-plugin/) and that doesn't work - same issue.
I started messing around with the rewrite rules, and interestingly, they do seem to work when it's a non-feed file. e.g. I put this rule into my .htaccess file
RewriteRule gibberish$ /blog/index.php?category_name=management [L]
and when I go to http://www.nehrlich.com/blog/gibberish, it sends me to the management category.
I can go to the feed page directly - http://www.nehrlich.com/blog/index.php?feed=rss2 works fine - but redirecting to it appears to fail (I left the first RewriteRule in my .htaccess file, but http://www.nehrlich.com/blog/index.xml gets sent to the regular home page).
I'm stumped - any ideas? (submitted this first on the forums, but they pointed me to the Feed Director plugin, and that didn't work, so I'm trying a bug ticket)
