Possible Fix for Empty WordPress RSS Widget

In case someone Googles for this:

I was trying to set up an RSS widget (actually for an Atom feed, but they still call it that) at Heisei Democracy and while it would work sometimes, usually it would just show an empty list and the title link just pointed to the root of HD, not to the site the feed was coming from.

The site I was trying to get the feed from is a WordPress site; the url looks like:

<code>http://some-dang-thing.blah/?feed=atom </code>

On a whim I tried using this URL instead:

<code>http://some-dang-thing.blah/index.php?feed=atom </code>

And it worked fine. I have no idea why.

Update: No, it broke again. I think the feed is just not very quick to load, and the widget times out in an attempt not to slow down our site.
