WordPress For iPhone/iPad NSXMLParserErrorDomain Error 64 Resolved30 Aug 2010
Over the past couple of days, I have been receiving the following error when trying to add my blog to the iPhone app.
After scouring the internet, I found that this could be the result of a few issues.
- Special characters in a post body that are not supported by NSXMLParser
- Special characters in a comment
- Invalid post or comment RSS
- An error in a theme/plugin file
For me, this turned out to be an issue with the comments RSS feed. I loaded it up in the browser and long behold, even the browser threw an error. But what could be causing this? Turns out, I had left a space in a plugin that I created. This caused a space to be output at the beginning of the comments XML, causing it to error. Notice the space between ?> and <?php below. (Face Palm)
After removing the space from this plugin, I loaded up WordPress for iPhone and it added my blog without a problem.
So, the take away from this is don’t output spaces when you create a plugin.
I hope this post has proven useful for you, I can’t imagine that I’m the only person with this issue 😉
