In Settings, it's in the Feed Settings section and the property you want is Alternate Feed URL. Well, I should say you can use the Alternate Feed URL if you want to enter in your FeedBurner URL.  The "Endorsement (bLink)" setting is where you can get your built in feed URL.

But the endorsement(blink ) shows general feeds....

I want to see my feeds how do i see it? I want URL to my feeds i.e when i enter the URL it should open up the blog that i created and show up the posts that i have cretaed.....

I m not even sure if my question is valid.....

Hey drohm,

When i download any RSS reader and ask it to open my feed giving it the link http://localhost:1674/BlogEngine.Web/syndication.axd works as the reader is on local machine....

But now i want my feeds to be read by some online readers or at any other hosts location so in that case what URL should i provide???

http://localhost:1674/BlogEngine.Web/syndication.axd  the localhost:1674 must be repalced by what??? or is there any othe way to do it???

For soem reason i m gettign real confused......

I have some kind of a similar issue. I am using blogengine 1.5. I am trying to figure of the RSS feed url. When i click on subscribe it takes me to a page http://localhost/blog/syndication.axd and i tot this would be the RSS url.

But when I try to add this url to my MS Outlook RSS feed, i am getting a message saying that the given url does not point to a valid RSS content.

Can you please tell me whether it is possible to do this with ?

You will get an RSS Url of the type you want only when you deploy it on development server of your site or company. Right now the feed is on your local machine.... so it will give you a url of type http://localhost/blog/syndication.axd ..... But when you will deploy it on the development server of you comapny you will get the desired url.....


Eg: you company Name is say ... then after you deploy the blogengine code on the devlopment server you will get a link of type 


So now if you have to check working of your feeds , you will have to download the RSS Readers in the machine and then add the url of localhost.... and they will work fine... You should search for only downloadable RSS readers and store them in your machine and add trhe url... you will see your feeds there.....Thats the only way you can see your feeds now.

In order to run your feeds with online RSS Readers like google reader etc you need to put the code on development server and pass that url.....


Hope this is clear....
