Wordpress RSS Problem: Feed Only Showing Main Page

I am having a problem with my feed only showing my main page/post on my wordpress blog. I have about 10 pages using permalink, but none of them ever get added to my feed. I have checked my footer, sidebar and everything in between, but can't figure out why it will not update when new content/pages are added. What could be the reason for this?

If needed, I can copy my link, but I'm not sure if it's allowed.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld aabliss551!

Strange. I wish I had something useful to offer. I've definitely seen a number of WP blogs where the feed doesn't seem to update properly, but it's always worked automagically for me.

Can I ask a few question?

- when you say "pages" are these "pages" or "posts" in WordPress (and whoever came up with that nomenclature for WP should be severely punished!). Because "pages" in the Wordpress sense don't show up in RSS feeds without a special plugin.

- how are you looking at the feed? Are you looking at the raw XML or using a reader? Have you run it through the W3C RSS Validator [validator.w3.org]? What does it tell you?

PS, what version of Wordpress?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld aabliss551.

RSS is normally used to track frequently updated information, not static pages. Most CMS packages will include blog posts in an RSS feed, but leave the pages out. What are you expecting to show up in this feed?
