RSS Feed instead of Index.xml?

After generating my calibre2opds library (in Dropbox, Public, Catalog folder), when I go to view the index page (index.xml), it shows an RSS feed instead of the book catalog.

Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

I've had the same result with several versions of calibre2opds.

index.xml is the rss feed.

index.html is the web index.

.xml is a file extension referring to, well, XML content instead of HTML.

You are doing everything right. You just aren't doing what you think you are doing.

As was mentioned you use the .html file for a catalog that is to be viewed using a browser. The .xml file is the OPDS catalog file for use with an OPDs compatible reader app.

D'oh! Thanks for the quick reply. I simply had the "don't generate html" box ticked. I knew it was going to be something obvious.

Much appreciated.
