Solved Twitter Feeds not showing from Forum

Post by cougar30 on April 18th 2011, 9:56 pm

Hi all,

Until recently (Possibly about a week ago) The Forum's feeds were showing on Twitter. And now they are not. If I go to Feedburner and try and add my forum URL; which is http://nineelms.freeforum.me.uk/forum and add it to http://twitterfeed.com/feeds/new it comes up with the following error;

Your feed might be empty or missing publish dates or GUIDs. A feed needs to contain publish dates or GUIDs in order to work with twitterfeed, see help

Thanks in advance

have your tried to contact twitter support and ask them?
I am not familiar with any of the twitter options nor have i ever been to twitter.If you can get an explanation of what it is they mean exactly then i can probably help.

Hi Kirk,

It states the following when I go to http://feedvalidator.org to check for issues....

It looks like this is a web page, not a feed. I looked for a feed associated with this page, but couldn't find one. Please enter the address of your feed to validate.

lol what is this mess.... lol

i dont know what http://feedvalidator.org is.
like i said you should try to contact twitter support or this feed validator support.

it may be that you have to add the link in this code somewhere.
Other then that i would have to set up a twitter account and test everything my self to see what it's all about.. and honestly i do not want nor need anything to do with twitter,

all i see in this code is what appears to be a html page you may have set up or just the source coding to what ever page this is. i dont see any options in there for twitter.

So i am having a hard time understanding exactly what it is your trying to do?
http://www.forumsuccessors.com/h107-59
Do you just want to add twitter options to this page?
it may be just something like how you incorporate facebook developer tools.

and i am not sure what http://feedvalidator.org would have to do with any of this either?

So try to explain more, i am sure there will be a simple solution we just need to understand a lil better.
Info added
oh wait, is that code on a html page?
if so i think they are asking for the link to your html page

Hi Kirk,

I have just had a thought..... I changed the security settings of the Forum on ACP > General > Categories & Forums, so that Guests cannot view any posts or threads? I wonder if this is what is stopping the feeds from being validated. I am going to make the changes back to what they previously were and I will let you know the outcome...... Bear with me.

Update It seems the above changes were the problem. All feeds are now going to Twitter. This thread can now be locked as solved.

Thanks for your help.
