New Premium Blog Feature: RSS Feed

Today I implemented a feature that will help Premium Blog writers at Lottery Post integrate their Blogs with the rest of the Internet community.

Every Premium Blog now has its own RSS Feed, and all Premium Blog updates (every time you make a new entry) is entered automatically at, in the "master list" of entries.

You can access your RSS feed directly from any of your Premium Blog pages, using the RSS icon in the navigation menu (right or left side of the page, depending on which template you use).

You can also access the RSS feed by URL.  For example, my RSS feed is located at  Justy substitute the "todd" portion with your Blog folder name.

Any Gold or Platinum member at Lottery Post can get their own Premium Blog setup in a couple of seconds.  Just go to the Premium Blog Settings menu option in the Control Panel menu, and choose a title, description, and template style.

  • Hi Todd:
    I don't know what an RSS Feed is, nor what I'm supposed to use it for, but thanks. I haven't a doubt it's a good thing, so long as I don't have do do something knowledgeable to use it.

    If I need to do something to activate it, or fix some setting to make it do whatever it does I'd be obliged to know. You're familiar with my blog. If you see I haven't done something I should have with this RSS Feed, or have done something I shouldn't have to cause it not to be as good as it might be I'd appreciate knowing that, too.

    Or if you think I don't need it, or don't need to worry about it one way or another, I'd like to hear it.

    Thanks for whatever it is, and thanks in advance for whatever you tell me I ought to do differently.

  • Jack,

    You don't have to do a thing, it's automatic and transparent.

    RSS allows someone with an RSS-enabled web browser (or add-on software), such as Safari for Mac or the upcoming IE 7.0 to have their browser automatically scan for changes to their favorite RSS feeds. So if someone likes your Blog, their browser will automtically see any new entires you make, without the need to check and see.

    Also, RSS feeds are used by search engines to effectively find your Blog entries. (Again, so people can easily find your blog.)

    It's a kind of handy publishing tool, but you don't need to do a thing to get it.
