Why are WordPress Feeds Not Working in Google Chrome & how to solve the problem

At times, the RSS Feed might not work while using Google Chrome. Users may get a download prompt rather than going to the RSS Feed. To fix the problem you need to follow the instruction below.

Why WordPress Feeds are Not Working in Chrome

Google Chrome does not use any feed reader of its own, and for this reason WordPress Feeds do not work in Chrome.

How to solve the problem?

  • Chrome actually needs a browser extension to make the RSS feed into something you can subscribe with. Check out the RSS Subscription Extension (by Google) in the Chrome store.
  • You can begin to burn your feeds with FeedBlitz or FeedBurner, if you want to fix the problem for all users. For this you need to use a FeedBlitz or FeedBurner link on your RSS icon.
  • Otherwise, you can redirect your WordPress feeds to the appropriate service to fix it.
