    Having problems with RSS

    I know absolutly nothing about RSS. I have been looking around the internet for the past few hours trying to find out how to put an rss feed on my website.

    Im not sure if i am using the correct terms here.. if im not im sorry.

    All i can find is .xml files that are updated by other websites. How do i get these on my website? Is there a simple way to do this?

    Please help
    Thanks
    Jon

    Jon,

    I tried to do this, but couldn't figure it out. Perhaps you could share how it's done?

    Thanks,

    Check out the RSS 1.0 link in my sig. It even contains a sample RSS file.

    Do you know XML? You will need to know valid XML syntax.

    I responded yesterday, but it must not have taken.

    Anyway, thanks for suggestions and links. My knowledge just extends to basic html and DMX. Unfortunately no php or xml. Suppose I'll have to pay someone to do it.

    Thanks again,

    Basic RSS 1.0 is pretty easy to learn really. You just need to see a sample file. For instance, do a view source on one of our own RSS feeds, or use the same provided at the RSS 1.0 homepage.

    RSS is not all that difficult, though RDF is - to me anyways.

    But isn't that something completely different all together anyway ?

    Would also recommend the Mag Pie script btw
