When I click on the RSS Feed widget on my blog it no longer works. I instead get a page that says:
"This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below." with a long page of source information following.

The feed used to work.

ETA: This is the blog address: http://www.farragio.com/blog.php The feed button is to the right of the page.

Hello farragio

I'm afraid to tell you that Yola has discontinued the Yola Blog Widget and it's no longer available to new users. Users with existing blogs can still use it, but we won't be able to look after it and fix any errors any more.

We'd like to encourage you to use a different blog tool, such as the one offered by our partner Tumblr which you can easily integrate with your Yola website by using our Tumblr Widget.

Thanks for the info Stefan. My blog already existed and I just noticed today that the feed works with Firefox, but not with Chrome. I've tried integrating Tumblr in the past but just don't quite like the look and feel of it. I sure wish you guys would reconsider making the blog widget active and available again :)

Hello Farragio,

If you syndicate your feed through Feedburner and then get that syndicated address and link this to a stand alone chicklet then this will work. Feedburner should re-style your feed during the process.

To do this please look at the Feedburner site and you can get an RSS chicklet (icon) for free by simply searching and there are millions of them :)

The end product is seamless to the user.

If you need assistance to work more on this solution please leave a message here.

Hi Gop, thanks for the suggestion. I've created a Feedburner account and have put it on my blog. Feedburner was a little confusing for me so hopefully I've got it working properly. If you get a chance check out the chicklet and let me know if I've done it properly. http://www.farragio.com/blog.php

Hello Farragio,

I've checked the RSS feed and it's perfectly setup with Feedburner.
I also see your blog in Chrome, Firefox and IE10 when I click on the chicklet, so well done!
