I use FeedForAll Mac Version 2
It worked fine. But I now have 2 problems.

1. Forwardslash is removed
The link for the feed is http://thissuitcase.com/feeds/ThisSuitcase.xml
Copy and paste in the browser works just fine.
But when you click on the link it automatically converts to
http://thissuitcase.comfeeds/ThisSuitcase.xml
As you can see, it removes the forwardslash.
You can test this by going to
http://thissuitcase.com/helloworldabout.php#ankerfeedforall and click on the URL.
Note: There's no other scripting language used on the (FeedForAll) feed page.


2. Feedburner doesn't work because of it.
And it can't ping the page.
I convert the feed with feedburner so the users can easily subsribe to it by email. This doesn't change the URL, I use it to create another URL.
However, when the service pings the page created with FeedForAll, it can't find the page. Even though the location hasn't changed.

So my blog doesn't work anymore.

Additional information:
I have another blog and I use Feedforall as well. All is good, but I haven't updated it. I don't want more problems.


Help me out, please.

Thank you.

I'm actually really confused by what you're referencing. I clicked on the two links you provided and both showed up fine in all three of my feed readers, two of which are browser based. I don't see where anything from the URL is being dropped until you get to the actual FeedBurner part of things... but FeedBurner always uses an indirect link to the feed instead of directly referencing the .XML file in the URL.

I found the answer.

Let me start by explaining what the problem is / was because someone might have the same problem:

When you click on this link : http://thissuitcase.com/helloworldabout.php#ankerfeedforall ,you will see the word URL (the URL is written in the color red. I will change that back to black though)
When you click on the link it should take you to http://thissuitcase.com/feeds/ThisSuitcase.xml

But it didn't do that, it changed the URL into
http://thissuitcase.comfeeds/ThisSuitcase.xml
Thereby removing the forwardslash between com and feeds.

What caused this problem was a site redirect.
The site used be http://www.thissuitcase.com and I changed that into http://thissuitcase.com , so without the www

And the link underneath the (red) URL was actually
http://www.thissuitcase.com/feeds/ThisSuitcase.xml


I thought the redirect would automatically remove the www and still work just fine, but that's not the case. My mistake.
So I changed all my URLs

Feedburner had the same problem.
The original feed was http://www.thissuitcase.com/feeds/ThisSuitcase.xml
and Feedburner couldn't find it.

I hope this makes sense.
