Bird Feeder loading blank page

I’ve followed the Bird Feeder instructions up until “Setting up the Feeder” and am only getting a blank page.

I’m using Dreamhost, and have noticed that sometimes I need to specify the full URL, when other hosts may not require that. Maybe that’s related?

Am using MySQL 5 and PHP 5.

Side note: A WordPress plugin would be excellent for the necessary code edits to the PHP files, as those files are replaced every time you upgrade WordPress.

It might be the lack of sleep talking, but I’m quite confused as to what needs to be done to get Bird Feeder working.

Flammable where are you getting a blank page? On /feeder/? That should be blank. As long as you don’t see an error, everything is fine.

Oh! Thanks, Shaun.

On Drupal, if it loads a blank page, that means some sort of fatal PHP error. I assumed that’s what was happening here, too.

Yeah, the feeder shouldn’t display anything. It’s just a landing/redirect page for clickthroughs from your feed items.

It would be nice if the page at least displayed some kind of message saying everything is working fine.

It can’t display anything, if it did the redirect to your feed item wouldn’t work.
