I’ve just learned something new.
I just wanted to submit my RSS-Feed to some portals and one said really that they don’t accept English feeds… What, English? What gives them that idea?
Very easy, because WordPress says that my RSS feed is in English.
Ok… and how can I change that? I’ve checked all setting pages… nothing. I just wanted to edit the source code itself, when I found another – very interesting – solution. There is a settings page in WordPress which you can’t reach usually. No link in the menu is pointing to this page… a hidden secret page.
But how do we get there? First of all log in to the administration area. Then edit the URL. Add after ‘wp-admin/’ ‘options.php’. So the URL should look like: http://www.domain.de/wp-admin/options.php
And here is (beside many more) the option ‘rss-language’… here I had to enter ‘de’. And then was my RSS feed in German.
But on the other hand are there a lot of other options… which nobody should touch who don’t know exactly what he is going… that’s why this setting page is hidden.
