Clicking on headlines generates "cannot be found" message

Stories link through "read on" link, but not through headlines

I've recently set up my first rss feed, and was happy to see that everything worked great...except getting the browser to link the story when clicking on the headline.

When I click on the "read on" link in the space below the site image, the story comes through fine. But when the headline is double-clicked, it just generates a "cannot be found" page.

I've tried it in RSS 2.0 and .91 with the following syntax:

<item>
<title>Story Title</title>
<link>
[sitename.org...]
</link>
</item>

The link in the <channel> section points to:
<link>http://www.sitename.org/stories/</link>.

I'm ready to announce the site, and this is the one thing holding it back. Any help for this newbie will be greatly appreciated.

Try using the following RSS template:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:sy="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/syndication/" xmlns:admin="http://webns.net/mvcb/" xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#">

Works fine for me, so I'm guessing it should do the same for you.
