Hi Meg,

You can use your site's address (eg. www.yoursite.com) and the service should give the person options and include the RSS Feed when they're subscribing to your site.

I recommend that you test it out! I just tried it with Bloglines and they asked me to confirm further details after I posted a site's address that didn't include "index" or the RSS feed URL.

I hope that helps!

Bloglines will let me change the name after I add the RSS feed. But, I don't want people to wonder what site they subscribed to if they don't remember and just see "index" or don't know how to change the name of it on bloglines.

If I use the main site name http://www.meadowviewpto.com/ then it only shows "index" on the RSS feed in bloglines.

If I use the page I made called "Blog" then it shows "meadow-view-pto-blog" in bloglines".

My problem is I don't want people to see "index" in bloglines and I know many people won't know how to change it.

I have read on this site that you have to have an "index" page on Yola which is fine but does the domain (www.meadowviewpto.com) have to point to that index page? Can't it point to my other page somehow? Is there a work around for this?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

I ended up finding a redirect script to solve this problem.
