Hi Jack,

Long time no see :) An RSS feed is something that you can add to your site that will allow site visitors to subscribe to your blog. If they have subscribed to your blog, any time you add a new blog post the subscribers will be alerted of it. It is certainly a great idea to have an RSS feed on your site if you plan on blogging.

Cheers!

Hi Jack,

If you have added a blog page to your site, an RSS feed will be found at the bottom of your page. You can also click and drag another RSS widget onto your page if desired or change the location of the feed that was automatically added by clicking and dragging it to your desired location:



Other then that, nothing technical is needed!

thanks thats great! i can ́t stop laughing coz im about to ask you another question :p but you might have noticed i have about 6 videos on one page... isn't there a way to put them in to a button that could have the video's name on the button so that i dont use so much page space?
so for eg. you click on a button that says watch video: Adrenalina!!!
and then the video pops up on a page or somewhere?
thanks again! :)

Are you checking your links in the Yola Sitebuilder? To test that your link is working on your page, you need to save and preview your page. If it still isn't working, double-check that your link is set up correctly. If it is an external link, it should look something like: http://www.yola.com/. Please let me know if you have any further trouble with this.
