RSS help needed please

Mon, 14 Jun 2010 19:45:42 +0000

Sorry if this has been asked a squillion times before but I couldn’t find an answer I understood (yes, I am a bit e-stupid).

Someone has asked me to give them an RSS feed that they can use to put a link to my blog in their blog.

How do I do this? Do I need to do something with widgets?

http://somethingsthat.wordpress.com/feed is all you need to give them, but I don’t know why they wouldn’t just use a regular link to your blog. This video explains RSS feeds:

class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='640' height='390' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/0klgLsSxGsU?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>

Make sure they’re not posting a lot of your content! Some people use RSS feeds to draw in and repost entire articles. This is a bad idea for many reasons, but as long as they’re just using the feed to get the title of your latest post and maybe the first few words, it’s totally fine and in fact great for you.

Thanks raincoaster,
It’s someone I know so I’m pretty sure they’re doing it as a compliment rather than a rip-off.

I thought so, just thought the possibility was worth mentioning. Sometimes even well-intentioned people do the wrong thing by accident.

Yes, I have had several people now who had such accidents.
