Creating an RSS.XML FILE PLEASE HELP BEFORE I LOSE IT
WTF, why can't I find out how to do this simplest of tasks? Jesus, every tutorial shows you how to create a .rss file, what is this? I need a .xml file right? I have an rss file made up, and I saved it as a .xml file. The icon changed, and it opened in my web borwser, but I get errors for it.
Can someone please edify me of what the hell is going on? How do I create a very simple .xml file, that I can use to syndicate content.
No diggety on that...ironically, I found that software you mentioned before I came back here, and I just got finished making the feed. I would kiss that man if he stand'th before moi. I don't know how I found that prog, but I was pretty desperate when I did. I'm just glad it seems to be working out now.
To Fang: See, all of these tutorials on how to make an rss, basically tell it like, all you have to do is throw some simple xml tags around your content, add the lil' rss notices at the top, save it in your fav text editor of choice, and VOILA...well, my friend, there is no voila at the end of that rainbow. I had the code looking identical to all of the rss .xml files around the net, but when I tried to save it in notepad, it just wouldn't create the .xml. It looked like an .xml, and kind of smelt like one, but when I opened it, it was just a shell of a xml.
Anyone who finds this thread, and is having the same problems I was having, GET THAT PROGRAM LINKED IN LEEU'S Post.
Notepad works fine, I just had ONNNNE whitespace, where it wasn't suppose to be, and it made the whole file bad. Actually, the thing that was causing the problem was an "&" in the title of the feed. Are you not suppose to use these in the title? I used this same title with the & in that Garden program and it worked, so I don't know.
