Apple Mail or Safari RSS Feed Error from WordPress

Effective Living > Technology

Problem Summary. When attempting to view an RSS Feed from Apple Safari or Apple Mail, an error is produced stating: “The feed could not be loaded because the content is not in a known feed format.”

Problem Solution. Follow these steps to resolve the problem.

  1. Apple Mail seems to rely upon Safari. When Apple Mail produces an RSS Feed error, go to Safari and try to read the same RSS Feed. There will probably be an error in Safari as well.
  2. Although the website address may have worked in the past, try using a different URL to refer to the feed such as feed://www.resourcesforlife.com/feed or feed://www.resourcesforlife.com/docs
  3. Once Safari is able to view the feed, then it should work in the Apple Mail program.
