I use it dlvr.it to automatically post Rss feed on my Facebook page. But not every published link can open and show a blank page.

Feed not found

and the link that is displayed is duplicated


Where is the real problem? In my plugin or in the auto-post application?

It is impossible to tell if the code is in your "plugin" (which you haven't mentioned anything about until you used it the last question) or in the auto-post app.

Anyway, the issue is clear: something is duplicating the initial part of the URL and adding an extra feed segment.

Expected URL: http://asky.uk/index.php/92

Actual URL: http://asky.uk/index.php/feed/asky.uk/index.php/92

Fixing this should be fairly simple. You can look for the URL generation code of your plugin (whichever it is) and make sure it is not duplicating the initial part of the URL. If it is not, then go to the settings of your auto-posting app and check if it allows you to input the initial part of the URL. I mean, probably the auto-posting app is expecting only the part of the URL that comes after (and including) 92/...

Now I tried in blogger. By directly posting the Rss link and the result is the same. So the problem comes from the plugin itself.


I use the option for RSS in the system is not an additional plugin

Where is the RSS plugin located on the server? For 20 minutes I have been trying to find it in the folders of the system
Sorry but I find it really hard to understand what you did. I hardly believe Q2A will output a link that includes "blogspot.com".

However, I can confirm that you don't seem to have man of the RSS feeds enabled. Navigate to admin/feeds and enable them
Yes, that's what I did. But I don't know how to check this:

 ...and make sure it is not duplicating the initial part of the URL...

and how to fix it if this is the problem
What checkboxes in admin/feeds have you enabled exactly?
Only Feed for recent questions and answers.

but I tried each one separately and all together. No difference
You can check the feed in this site: https://www.question2answer.org/qa/feed/questions.rss

As you can see the URLs are fine. In your site, they are wrong: https://asky.uk/index.php/feed/qa.rss

Remove all custom plugins and themes. The only non-standard thing I can see at first sight in your setup is the theme. Then retry.
I dont have custom plugins and themes. Just standart installtion.
You say wrong as you mean the construction of the URL?

In Administration Centre - General have some option:

-/123/why-do-birds-sing (requires htaccess file) - not working on my server ( my be this is the problem)

-/index.php/123/why-do-birds-sing - i use this at the moment

- /?qa=123/why-do-birds-sing

- /?qa=123&qa_1=why-do-birds-sing

In the end, the feed works. I tested through a feed reader like a Feedbro and everything there is perfect. But if I add it to a stream to a blog, site or Facebook when I try to open the link I load in the browser again a double link
