Is it possible to get rss URLs automatically?

I want to display content from another site using a feed. I've just implemented the feed reader functionality and relevant PHP script. But the websites from which I will pop the content have a different feed for each page. I am loathe to find and insert each feed manually for each of our web pages! Is it possible to use a reader or other function to identify the RSS feed associated with a specific page and feed it automatically? Is there any way to get rss URLs automatically or get an index or list of all rss belonging to a website?

Not unless it is published on their site. There is no universal way of rss discovery. There are a few default pages, but not for entire categories or subsets. Each site is unique in that list.

If they've added RSS Autodiscovery [rssboard.org] it may be possible as well.

Thanks, RSS Auto-discovery is a useful tool but it doesn’t resolve my problem completely. I still have to find out which pages of each site have an RSS feed. Is there any way to get a list of a site’s urls with RSS feeds automatically?

Nope. Brett was spot on in his advice. If they haven't listed them for you or implemented autodiscovery then the only other way would be to ask them for a complete list.
