I have version 2.0.53 from SVN this week-end..

I'd like to provide a RSS 2.0 feed but I dunno which URL I should give?

Is it the sitemap.axd?

 

Also: I try to make it a "CodeProject" feed

http://www.codeproject.com/script/Articles/BlogFeed.aspx

i.e. I should add "codeproject" in my feed category (below <channel>) how do I do that?

Also I'm on my admin page:  http://galador.net/blog/admin/Settings/Feed.aspx

but I don't see where I specify / set the URL.. yet there seems to be already something on
 http://www.galador.net/codeblog/syndication.axd
where is it set?

 

thanks!

Your RSS URL would be: 

 

http://galador.net/blog/syndication.axd

Also: http://www.galador.net/codeblog/syndication.axd 

 

Basically the RSS feed is where ever your blog site is at with the handler syndication.axd

 

Like:   www.abc.com/blog/syndication.axd

         www.root/blog/syndication.axd

         www.root.com/syndication.axd

All depends where BE is at

Thanks! 
I found out that BE has multiple build in RSS feeds! :) 

By the way, what about the <categories> tag under <channel> is there a way to set it?

Put this URL in your post some where:

<a href="http://www.codeproject.com/script/Articles/BlogFeedList.aspx?amid=<your member id>" rel="tag">CodeProject </a>


If you don't want this link visible just use a style to hide it
(e.g. style="display:none") – we'll still pick it up.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To have a Technical Blog consumed after you submit your blog's RSS feed either:

  • Place the keyword CodeProject within the <category> element that is the direct child of <channel>. This marks all items within the channel as consumable.
  • Place the CodeProject keyword within the <category> element that is the direct child of an <item>. This marks just the one item as consumable.
  • Leverage the Rel-Tag Microformat. Check out the links if you've never heard of them. It's really simple. All you need to do is place an anchor tag somewhere in you blog article's content. E.g.:

    <a href="http://anyurl.com" rel="tag">CodeProject</a>

    If you don't want this link visible just use a style to hide it (e.g. style="display:none") – we'll still pick it up.

    The URL in the anchor can be any URL you like but we thought it would be useful to point to your blog articles page here on code project: http://www.codeproject.com/script/Articles/BlogFeedList.aspx?amid=<your member id>

Thanks kbdavis!

I actually prefer the first link you deleted! Because I got 2 blog.

A technical one where I'd like every post to go to codeproject without having to remember to paste this little tag!

and another one...
