Fixing RSS Feed with Fantastico and WordPress 1.5.2

The default RSS setup for WP 1.5.2 is broken. It took some digging, but I eventually found how to fix it.

1. Find footer.php (probably in wp-content/themes/default/)
2. where it says:

    <a href="feed:<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>">Entries RSS</a>

replace the cryptic text inside the quotes with this:

    your_blog_url/?feed=rss2

3. For example, I replaced it with this:

   http://blog.picobusiness.com/?feed=rss2

4. Reload your site, and click on the Entries RSS link at the bottom of the page. If you get some ugly XML, it’s working!
