Hello all,

Have come across an excellent tutorial which is reasonably generic, and shows you how to put your website into an RSS feed. (Now you no longer have to think that only a Blog can go into a feed!)

The reference:

Hi Lee,

Amazing.

I was looking at your site and thinking, perfect for feeding as I presume there would be continual updates of your services index.

Hi, I use a static site generator for my blog (alexanderle.com) and ran into this problem.

I decided to created an RSS feed from scratch and it works great! Pretty easy to automate too if you have access to the template system or database. Editing the XML is not that difficult at all - if you can write simple HTML, you can edit a RSS XML file.

Check out the guide at alexanderle.com/blog/2012/04/11/create-an-rss-feed-from-scratch.html !

That's a nice first principles approach. Yola blogs aren't accessible from their primary database by users and neither is the structure available, so I think quite difficult to use this approach.
