When I log into my wordpress blog and look at my dashboard, I see an RSS error on my “Incoming Links” widget. This has been a minor annoyance for me and has been going on for months now, but I never really got around to fixing it until today. (Just needed something to distract me).
So here’s the really simple fix. It literally is a one-liner.
On the actual widget (Incoming Links), there is a “Configure” link next to the little arrow that allows you to expand or collapse the widget. Just click on it and there will be a box with an existing URL in it. All you need to do is simply delete the box and put in the following string:
Keep in mind that my blog url is: swimminginthought.com. You will need to replace swimminginthought.com with your blog url. For example, if your blog url is: www.myblog.com, then you would paste the following string into the widget configure box.
Well, that’s literally the fix. It should have taken all of but 30 seconds to do. Remember to hit “Submit” after you replace the url.
