RSS auto discovery for multiple feeds
How to do it without the code bloat?

 3:49 pm on Aug 25, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hey all,

I've got a whole bunch of rss feeds for one site - maybe like 8 feeds.

I can include them in the head of each page with the standard:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="My Rss Feed" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/myfeed" />

But I'd like to not have to repeat that for each individual feed and get stuck with a big bloated <head>

Any ideas how else to do this?

I'm afraid you're stuck with one feed for each link in the head.


You may want to limit a comprehensive list of your feeds to the home page or specific news pages. Then on your other pages you could simply list your main feed or the feed relevant to the page.

Yeah that's what I was afraid of. Hopefully OPML will become more standard and be auto-discoverable at some point. I see there's a plugin for firefox that does that, but i doubt many people are using it.
