Does anyone know how to make an RSS feed? I don't mean haul one in off another site, I mean make a feed on a remote site that can be hauled in...


A bit like this: ukcn_news then? (very BETA)

I'm not 100% certain, but I think it's just a specific XML format, and a relatively simple one at that, and you just update it whenever you have new contents, and the hauling site checks it periodically.

In other words, no, I don't know, but I think it's fairly easy to do with any sort of dynamicly generated site and that you should probably just google for the specifications.

Ah yes... XML is the magic "I'm allowed to do this at work" word, so a quick google for 'RSS XML format' and I'm away ;)

I've just started reading the spec, and it seems straightforward enough so far...

pir_anha does, but that's probably not a whole load of use to you since you don't know zir.

AFAIK that only lists the most widely read ones - it's a case of "add to friends list" for now afaik.
