You can see it here:

Now it was working fine today but something was going on with the forums and then this happen. Don't know how to investigate this since no code changes have been made from my page
Here is the code and class for the php:
 
<?PHP

Probably one of the lines you're parsing contains a reserved name...can you check that?

Are you sure the xml you're parsing is syntactically well formed? could you print out the xml before parsing?

Right now I cleaned the current rss threads and I am still getting that error so right now I don't what it is acutally parsing.

The weird thing is that it's happen on every page that I use rss feeds to populate my site. I don't know how to troubleshoot this at all?

Have you tested with an empty file to see whether it works or not? It seems a problem with the xml formatting.... maybe your class doesn't handle an empy file.

Could you post the starting lines of the file you're parsing?

Another possible issue: the whole parsing code is yours? or you're including external code?

I actually just did that. I took out the rss link out of the code that displays the data and it gave me the correct error so it's something going on with the rss export feed coming from my forums. It's definitly now the code. I'm looking into the feeds right now.

Ok, it's something definitly going with the export rss feeds for my forum. It's not my code because I just tested it and other xml links work just fine with my code. At this point this is something for invisions boards to fix. Thanks guys!!
