WordPress RSS Feed Timeout During Feed Validation

I have a WordPress blog installed on a Windows Server. The blog is working fine, however, the RSS feed is VERY slow. When I use a feed validator it returns a timeout. When I browse to it via web browser it eventually shows up but very slow.

The blog URL is blog.greeneconsults.com

The feed URL is blog.greeneconsults.com/feed

I have looked all over the web and am still at a loss. Some pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Shawn.

Unless you've made a change that fixed it, the feed is coming up very quickly and passing the validator immediately when I tested it.

The only way I got a fail on it was testing it in a program that lets you set the display formatting - if I entered it as blog.greeneconsults.com/feed without the http:// it did fail.
But entering http://blog.greeneconsults.com/feed it worked perfectly.

It could be a caching issue. Try placing this in your functions.php file:

function do_not_cache_feeds(&$feed) {
   $feed->enable_cache(false);
 }
 add_action( 'wp_feed_options', 'do_not_cache_feeds' );

Open in new window

I can confirm that clicking the link in Dzynit's post produced the feed quickly in Firefox.

It also validated quickly using w3.org's validator

This ended up being a template issue, which was resolved today. We are using Wordpress > Thesis > then a custom skin - the custom skin was causing the issue.

I am unsure what to do next with this question?

Pick your own last comment as the answer and close. The knowledge base just needs a real solution to the answer rather than abandoned question because it may be helpful to someone else trying to solve the same issue.
