I am new to the forum and to Ghost. I have recently created a self-hosted Ghost instance on DigitalOcean.
I have noticed that when clicking on the RSS link on my website to test that it works, instead of prompting me to open my installed RSS reader, I am redirected to a page that shows me the website’s raw XML feed.
I know that and RSS feed is essentially XML and that it depends on the browser you are using on how RSS is treated. On Safari, however, which is the browser I am using primarily, when I click on an RSS link it always prompts me to open my RSS reader.
I have see other Ghost blogs hosted on Ghost(Pro) that their RSS link works like that (ie prompting to open the RSS reader and not just show the raw XML). This made me curious to see if my RSS will work like that on Ghost(Pro). I created a trial account on Ghost(Pro) and uploaded my website’s theme file and indeed when clicking on the RSS from the same browser, I was prompted to open it on my RSS reader.
DigitalOcean support confirmed that there is no issue with my Droplet and that the issue must lie with the “Ghost application configuration/settings”.
I am not sure what’s happening, but this is very bizarre to me.
I know that some Ghost themes use Feedly for their RSS but I would prefer to not do that.
I would appreciate any help I can get. I hope that someone from Ghost can also advice on this.
