Gina gave some great advice: https://www.soundcloudcommunity.com/soundcloud/topics/fixing-my-rss-feed-error-messages-2ex0x1gcbp3o...

But I am still experiencing the same error messages from WC3: http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Ffeeds.soundcloud.com%2Fusers%2Fsoundcloud%25...

I am using podtrac as a service so I changed the ‘Stats service URL prefix’ to their redirect URL of http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3 but I am still getting the following error messages:

This feed is valid, but interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations.

  • line 3, column 133: Self reference doesn't match document location [help] [quote]... rel="self" type="application/rss+xml"/> ^[/quote]
  • line 31, column 38: Image title doesn't match channel title [help] [quote] <title>the Talk Is Good- CALZONA</title>[/quote]

Hey there,

Thanks for posting again. Glad to hear Gina was able to help with your previous question. I've looked into this for you and also let our developers take a look. The issues that the validator-page determines won't cause any problems with either your tracks on SoundCloud or your RSS feed on iTunes, so you should be all set actually. I am not entirely sure what causes the image title to be determined to be a potential issue - are you running into any issues though?

Also, I am not able to reproduce the issue that is pointed out to be in line 3 - have you changed anything in the meantime that sorted this?

Sorry I cannot be of more help with this - if these indicated things do cause actual issues, please do let us know here and we'll take another look together.

Cheers,
Mathis
