    Easy RSS feed?

    Hi: Does anyone know of a fairly simple way to install an RSS feed on my homepage? I googled it and have tried three different methods, but none of them seem to work properly.


    Your help appreciated.

    You need to explain what you're trying to do a bit further. Are you trying to provide an RSS feed for others or trying to include an RSS feed from another website?

    Thanks for your response, Rick: I want to provide an RSS feed for others, based on my site. I guess (?) clicking on the graphic should pop over to another page where the URL to the RSS feed is available, so people can plug that into their Reader.

    I am trying to figure this out on my own. In another forum it was indicated that I should create an xml file using the code on the Wikipedia page, configured with my URL:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS

    and then insert in the header the following:

    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="bsv RSS feed" href="http://the URL of my page/myfeed.xml" />

    When I did this, nothing appears to happen at all.

    I think I need to connect the RSS function with an RSS graphic button, which I tried to do by inserting the following code at the location of the button:

    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="bsv RSS feed" href="http://the URL of my page/myfeed.xml" />
    <img src="RSS.gif" border="0" alt="RSS button"></a>


    But this didn't produce a hyperlink.

    What's missing in my process?

    TIA

    Note that I put my actual URL at:

    the URL of my page

    ...not that phrase. I just don't want to post it, b/c I don't want to get into trouble with the moderator.
