RSS feed Wordpress

Postby DJ » Sun Oct 31, 2010 10:22 pm

I'm all over the WordPress lately!

Right, if I want an RSS feed for people to subscribe to my site, do I just link an RSS button to http://www.djadam.co.uk/index.php/feed/ and that's it?
I guess I'd have no idea if a miracle happened and someone subscribed though if I did that?

Works for me and Google Reader.

Link it somehow to a twitter account so I can have you in Flipboard for iPad

Thanks Blak, just about to look at that now.

In the meantime, I was already on some travels after what RB said and combined feeds using ChimpFeedr:
http://mix.chimpfeedr.com/d4401-doojmeister
which has combined my site page updates with twitter updates too. Not sure if that's what twitterfeed does but I'll take a look.

I'm loving this. I had no idea I could do such things and this is the first time EVER I've used RSS in any way.

It looks like ChimpFeedr just smushes multiple RSS feeds into a single one.

TwitterFeed posts tweets based off an RSS feed so you can tell it to post a tweet whenever you make a new post. e.g. most of GameOn's tweets are automated and posted because a new post was made on their website.

As said, twitterfeed will automatically tweet your rss feed. Twitter gives you a bigger audience and also the awesome FlipBoard for iPad will make a magazine out of your posts...

TwitterFeed set up and running. New posts on my site are also going to Twitter.
My RSS icon link on my web site should go the feed link from earlier. I've got my social icons pointing to the necessary places.
I can't see anything more I need to do with this, or do I? Wish I had an iPad to check out that Flipboard thing.

This thread (and a problem I'd been having since updating to Office 2007) prompted me to create my own WP blog. :megaexcitedlols:

I'd get your entire site shifting on to it, and start ripping in to the css like I had to. Fun fun fun!

No, no you haven't. I see your 3dVR module is working though.
