    can we subscribe to RSS with WP Blog?

    Hey,

    I wanted to ask if it was possible to add a link to a website I am developing which takes users to a page where they can subscribe to the websites blog. The blog is wordpress, but I have been asked to enable users to subscribe to all the stories. I have no idea how or if this works. Can anyone help?

    Not sure I'm following what are you after. The client wants each article to be able to be subscribed to individually? If so, Wordpress does this out of the box. Just add /feed/ to the end of any URL and it can be subscribed to. If this is not what you meant, please explain.

    sorry, maybe i was being vague :-)

    Basically take a look at this page:-

    http://www.xinfu.com/blog

    I want users to be able to sign up for RSS feeds via the blog. For example lets say i want to sign up for RSS feeds via twitter, i would go to this page :-

    https://twitter.com/signup?follow=xi...it=Join+today!

    And sign up..

    Now in the same way i want to somehow enable users to do the same with the blog i have via wordpress..

    I hope i have explained properly, is this possible?

    Very possible, should be plenty of WP widgets to do that, BUT for some reason I'm drawing a blank at the moment.

    Someone will quickly chime in with some relevant ones I am sure.

    I don't know what you mean by "sign up for feeds". Users can sign up for emails, but the feeds are simply subscribed to, no sign up needed.

    WordPress comes with a "meta" widget in the core. This is for "posts" and "comments". If you want something more fine tuned, then a plugin is your answer.

    Wordpress should do this by default, but for some reason I'm unable to find your feed, it returns a 404 error: http://www.xinfu.com/blog/feed/

    Maybe you have some funky regex in your htaccess breaking the feed URLs?
    i.e. .../blog/?p=23
