As I understand it, it’s not a “problem”. It’s the way it is supposed to be.
it still annoys the hell out of me. be it bug or feature.
Thank you for this mode…
Hello i cant download this plugin i need this help
Brano, there’s no need to download the file, you can change it manually.

The reason the feeds are getting downloaded has something to do with plugins. The problem being: something about how a plugin is getting handled by Textpattern is inserting a single space before the “<” in “<?xml” at the top of the feed (the first line of the feed’s source). This is making the feed invalid as far as IE and Firefox are concerned, so it goes with the default behavior: download the file.

This hack definitely works, though; thank you, Noam!

But will your feed validate afterwards? That’s what makes me nervous.

Thanks, the mode is great, especially if I don’t have to download the plugin.
