    RSS again

    Tuesday, November 14th, 2006

    I just realised that the previous post was included in my RSS feed so it looks like it works. The old posts are still there but hopefully they will gradually be replaced by the newest ones as I enter them. So give it a go if you can work out how. Clicking on the orange button in Firebox will give you the option of how to subscribe and IE7 gives some information on what feeds are. The idea is it lets you know when I post a new, err, post.

    There seems to be a few ways of subscribing other than using the browsers. Thunderbird (Mozilla’s email client) lets you subscribe and it will arrive in a similar way to an email, which to me sounds like a good option, but now that I use gmail I don’t use Thunderbird any more. Sage seems to be a good plugin for Firefox to keep up to date with RSS.

    If you understand any of this and have some better options or can explain it better than me please feel free to reply to this and help out!

    I’ve tried setting up a link on the right to the RSS feed (its the orange button) – I suppose if you know what I’m talking about when I say RSS you’ll know the orange button. I’m still not 100% on it myself, but it’s a way of subscribing to the blog. If you have Firefox 2.0 or Internet Explorer 7 then you will have the option to subscribe using them, if not then download Firefox 2 and stop lagging behind.

    The problem with this subscription is that it gives you the oldest instead of the newest posts, which isn’t of much use to anyone. I’ve tried asking blogger.com about it and had no reply, I’ve tried posting to the forum but had no reply. So if anyone reading this has any idea of how to sort it out (I have a feeling that blogger would need to sort it on their servers) then please let me know.

    In the meantime, feel free to enjoy my earlier posts all over again through the RSS feed ;)
