Hi Niddy

An RSS feed for your site is one of the features on our backlog. Hopefully we can find a way to make this possible in future. I will certainly let the developers know that you have requested this, as I can see how it would be a useful addition to your site.

Best wishes

Hi Niddy

I have posted an example of a way that you can create your own RSS manually.

Essentially all you need to do is create the feed on your computer, upload it to the file manager on SynthaSite, and then link to it!

See the tutorial here

Hi
Thank you for the question CJ :-), and thank you Christo for the reply :-). I am just inching my way forward in this whole thing (meaning I don't really know what I am doing, nor do I understand most of the language!). I used the http://www.toucanmultimedia.com/rssma... that you suggested which I found so easy, that even I could make it work ;-). However, I did run into a problem. The file has a very boring little "page" as an icon, and I would like to have that well known orange icon. I managed to up load one from your tutorial (at the bottom of your page), but now the 2 are not linked. What must I do now?
I found it very hard to "change" the example you have from Wikipedia and would rather use the toucanmultimedia one if that is possible. I went back to their site, but can't find anything that would allow to link an icon. Now I was thinking that perhaps I could create a link via the "link editor" on my website, but it seems that the icon created via HTML does not open the "link editor" option ... is that correct? is there a way around this?
In the meantime I "cheated" and got a free icon off a website as a "picture" and used the "link editor" with that. However, I would still like to know how one can link an image via HTML on yola.
Thank you for any help
Regards
Gaby

Hi Gabby,
If I am understanding you properly, you would like to link your image of the orange RSS button to a file... is that correct? Here is how that code would look in an HTML widget, with your information substituted (such as site name and file names):
<!--
<a href="http://site.yolasite.com/resources/fi... src="http://site.yolasite.com/resources/im...>
-->

The are there so the code will render on the page and are not necessary. Hope this helps!
