I've set up a simple rss feed (shown below). I'm wondering if there is a way to set this up so that a user who has no idea what it is doesn't have to use an aggregator or something. If there is, how? I'm really new to xml and so far I've only set up a pod cast and an rss feed.
Could I style the page to say something like: This page isn't meant to be viewed by humans. To subscribe to it, you will need a News Reader or other similar application, plug-in, or another website that supports RSS aggregation (such as Google, Yahoo!, etc).
<link>link to page containing all updates</link>
<title>item title (probably include date</title>
<link>link to item (same as above but with anchor link)</link>
<description>shortened version of what's on the actual page</description>
The browser will generally do that. You can add the following script. The idea is to provide an alert window with the URL of the RSS feed that can be copied into the visitor's RSS feed reader. Here is an adapted version of the script. (Note: the onClick portion should all be written on the same line.)
You can also use the method shown here
<a href="http://www.yourdomain/feed.xml" target="_blank"
onClick="prompt('To subscribe to this RSS feed, copy this link
and paste it into your aggregator software.\nOr, if you are using
Firefox, just click the orange icon in the address bar
above.','http://www.yourdomain/feed.xml'); return false;">
<img src="/img/rss_xml.gif" width="71" height="14" border="0" alt=""></a>
Ok I'll try that later. The image is just something like this, right? With FireFox live bookmarks, is it just a link to whatever page the <link> is in the <item> ?
Is that correct about firefox live bookmarks? (look at previous post)
just use xslt to say that over the file..
