I have been trying to figure out what I am missing for weeks now! The more I look the more I am confused!

I have a fully updated PHPBB Forum and a modification which allows me to create a Javascript or RSS Feed on my HTML site. I have NO Problem dropping the Javascript in but, understand RSS 2.0 is seen by search engines and Javascript is not.

When I use my PhPBB Forum program to create an RSS feed it seems to work very well and I get to an url or link.

Which is Great if I had a clue what to do with this once I got it I wouldn't be here now... Fact is I believe I am missing something... I am told to put this url in the aggregator which I don't think I have?

Either I am in WAY over my head or it is so simple I am just viewed as a dolt? Fact is, I wish I could figure out how to implement the RSS on my site....and now it is driving me crazy!

Any, kind of help would make my day!

Thank You,

The URL of an RSS feed needs to be used with either an RSS reader such as Thunderbird, a web reader such as [netvibes.com...] or even using my yahoo. The feed produces XML. The next version of both Firebird and MSIE 7 will handle these in a human-friendly way enabled mere mortals to subscribe in the browser to feeds. This is a Good Thing IMO.
