Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Instead I use RSS2 and update my rss feeds by hand - at this point I imagine the programmers have started banging their heads on the table - with the following template:
<title>RSS Feed Title</title>
<description>Description of Feed</description>
<copyright>Copyright 1997-2007, MySite</copyright>
<title>Item #1 Title</title>
<link>Link to Item #1</link>
<description>Description of Item #1</description>
<title>Item #2 Title</title>
<link>Link to Item #2</link>
<description>Description of Item #2</description>
Then, every time I update it and upload it to my webspace - usually takes about twenty seconds all in - I validate it at [feedvalidator.org ]
I run it against feed validator as well. You can likely look up the specification and manage it by hand if your website is small.
Anyhow, do a search on G for "free rss feed readers". You should find it.
