How to utilise 'Feed Discovery' in your website

Just been playing with a new RSS reader and it can auto-detect an RSS feed on a website if the website has 'feed discovery'.

For example, all you have to do is type in a site's url and it automatically finds the rss feed and imports it to the reader.

Anyone know how to do this because it would sort a hell of a lot of problems out?

We got to make things easy for the surfers, right!

Sorry, I've realised what was going on, for some reason I was thinking that 'feed discovery' was something different.

It isn't, it's explained in this thread;

add the following into your page's head:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS Feed" href="http://www.yourwebsite.com/rssfeedhere.rss" />

EDIT: Just missed ya.. glad to see you got it sorted out.

Thanks Mop! But yes I got it as well. I already had it on one of my sites but didn't realise I'd forgotton to put that code on another.

So many things on the 'to do' list, not enough time to complete them all.....
