If you run into the following error on your WordPress website:
The feed for this website is protected, please visit our website!
There are a couple things you can check to try to resolve the issue.
1. Check your theme files
In a previous post I showed how to disable RSS feeds on your WordPress website. So the first step is to check your functions.php file to make sure that the feeds haven’t been disabled there.
2. Check your plugins
If you have any password protection plugins installed on your website this could be the issue. Either check the setting or delete them completely to test. Plugins like the “Private Blog” plugin has been known the disable the RSS feeds, even when not activated.
Hope these tricks help somebody fix their feed issue!
