    My RSS feeds started to act weird this morning. The FireFox software shows the error when I tried to view the RSS feed news:

    “XML Parsing Error: xml declaration not at start of external entity … Line Number 2, Column 1:< ?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>”

    The problem was caused by one of installed plugins that inserted a blank line at the top of the RSS feed. To solve that you should find that php code and remove any leading or trailing lines before and after the < ?php and ?> PHP code respectively. It will take much time to find the problem php code but your plugin makes the work quickly.
