Ideally, you shouldn’t need to, but it may be worth a try to see if
it solves it. Most feedreaders (Bloglovin included) if given the base
URL try and find the RSS feed from that URL https://www.azlogin.com/hondaweb/. It may not be able to find
the feed for some reason, so perhaps a direct feed link can solve it. Awesome.

Today (2020-07-14) my Inoreader app is reporting my Instructable feed is broken. I have tried subscribing to various Instructable feeds in case it was just the one, but all of the ones I have tried have the following error...

"This XML document is invalid, likely due to invalid characters. XML error: XML_ERR_NAME_REQUIRED at line 54, column 34"

My non-Instructable feeds are all working fine. Has anyone else come across problems with Instructable feeds? Is this the right place to report errors?

You have the RSS feeds set to full text and you’ve also embedded images into your posts (which is fine) so WordPress dutifully creates ‘coffee table book’ sized posts and includes them in a RSS feed hotmail login that chokes most of the feed parsers out there.
My advice would be to go to Dashboard –> Settings –> reading and drop down to where it says ‘For each article in a feed, show… and the two choices are ‘Full text’ or ‘Summary’.
Choosing Summary sends a small section of the post with a read more button to direct the reader back to your website which is what you really should want.

No, doesn't work. Tried and received "Specified URL doesn't seem to contain any feeds."
Can Instructables please fix the feed?

I second this, easily the best RSS feed I have and now error 404 for a week or so.
Badly missing the feed I urge you guys to look into it!
