My blog and RSS feed are empty

Noticed yesterday that one of my blogs is not displaying any posts at all. My pages are all there, but no posts.

Then I looked at my feed, and it contains no post info at all. Just the header stuff. Same with my podcast feed - nothing there.

Rebuilding the site does not rebuild the feed.

Any ideas, hive mind?

Yeah, getting pretty frustrated with this.

I deleted one of my pages and everything came back - until I reloaded the homepage again, and everything was still gone.

More interesting stuff. The emtpy feed date has a very old “last build” date.

Have you looked at the logs under the account tab?

That date sure looks like you mess something up in your theme.

Yeah, I have looked at them.

Weirdly I had changed nothing in the theme when it went bad on me.

I just looked at this and I’m seeing your latest “test” post in all the feeds. Anything change?

I just started it over. I downloaded my blog archive file and will work on re-uploading it tonight.

I noticed this morning when starting the blog over – it seems like if I have two pages with similar names, like “Read in 2023” and “Read in 2023” the system truncates the names both to “read-in”. When this happens, the feed seems to disappear. Is that even a remote possibility, or am I grasping at straws? Before I had pages named 2023 and 2024, and the system just reduced each to an nothing – it just read “/” on the page editing page.
