Are you looking to make an RSS feed available for your users to subscribe to, or are you looking to place someone elses RSS feed on your site?

slightly off topic but could you point me towards any articls or posts that would be good for somebody who just started researching RSS feeds TODAY? (basically a guide for RSS newbies). In the meantime I will search the forums.

Thanks,
Mike

I want to create a feed that will be used on another site....meaning as i make changes on it..it should get refreshed on that site....

but i want to learn to do both ..

Content Master, how many pages would you like to create RSS feeds of? If you want to just do a feed of newest topics or site updates setting up a blogger account might be a good start. It is really simple to use and requires only basic HTML to understand and incorperate with your site and it also provides a feed.

i don't know a lot about blogger.....my aim is to create such a feed that can be used by other sites on a regular basis...also there is content on my site that keeps changing on a monthly basis...here i am talking abt quite a few sections and pages.....the rss feed script that i am taling abt it seems very good...i want to try it out and see if it serves my purpose...however, i do not know php and hence the trouble...can i put down the link here and get expert advice on how to implement it!

Sorry, but you cannot put down the link.

It sounds like you need an easy programming free method of creating rss feeds outside of a content management systems or "blogging" style of software.

There are tutorials online of how to create a php scraper script of your individual pages and rss feeds, but this would fall under the programming category.

One solution may be to hire out to get this done...another may come from a 3rd party solution such as "my rss creator", but you should look into the following free service that lets you add a few tags to your page and creates a feed for you: [wcc.vccs.edu...]

I would test it out thoroughly and try subscribing to it with bloglines or a similar aggregator before you make it live.
