I am attempting to use an RSS feed from Facebook using the External Feed block but when entering the feed:

I get an error to say that the input is not valid XML. Is there a way to correct this?

Hi Bill,

I've done a bit of a google around, and apparently the facebook rss feeds can be poorly formed and some validators will fail them. This is facebook's doing and it seems to have been a known issue for a while, so clearly they're not rushing to fix them.

The recommended workaround seems to be to put the feed into which cleans it up. You can then distribute the feedburner link instead.

Hope this helps,
