    I beg to differ. I have a VB feed that works intermittently. I have not gotten it to validate at W3C or rssboard. Other sites cannot pull the feeds. Try it:

    http://www.stockplaysonline.com/external.php?type=RSS2

    Sometimes it pulls a blank result and other times I get this:

    Warning: mysql_query(): 22 is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in [path]/includes/class_core.php on line 408

    Warning: mysql_error(): 22 is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in [path]/includes/class_core.php on line 897

    Warning: mysql_errno(): 22 is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in [path]/includes/class_core.php on line 915

    Warning: mysql_query(): 22 is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in [path]/includes/class_core.php on line 408

    Warning: mysql_error(): 22 is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in [path]/includes/class_core.php on line 897

    Warning: mysql_errno(): 22 is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in [path]/includes/class_core.php on line 915

    Not very often does it pull good feed results. I have upped the packet_size to 64M, checked all forumgroup permissions are viewable, replaced the external.php file with a new one on the server and a half dozen other things with no luck.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

      That is a completely different issue. Those errors above say that the system can't connect to MySQL properly.

      Do you have persistent connections turned on in your config.php? Is so, you need to turn these off. They should only be turned on if you're on a dedicated server network. And even then any benefit is debatable.

        We are on a dedicated server. So why would the feed work sometimes and NOT validate with W3C and others? Strange, right?

          Because you're getting mysql errors in the middle of the document that shouldn't be there.

            Okay, thanks. So do you have a solution? Or should I dig it out of you?

                I don't know whats causing the errors, but they are there plain as day. Do you have third party addons?

                  Not many, VBSEO; Gravity Insights; VBadvanced and Thread Prefixes.

                  Sorry but the bug is not plain as day to me...

                        Your server is misconfigured. You should visit the Server Configuration forum to help get it configured correctly.
