I tested FireFox 1.0 for MacOsX and I'm glad of its feature that discover automatically if a site has a Rss Feed.

Is it possible with the Content Syndication plugin to insert some code in my homepage and "be discovered" by browsers like FireFox which arrives on my website?

I'm maintaining my personal website www.tampano.com and a friends of mine website www.klum.it

Thanks in advance for your answers

Paolo

A quick fix while you wait:
Open your header.thtml template and insert a line simlar to the following just under the stylesheet link:
Text Formatted Code
<link rel="alternate" title="Tampano RSS Feed" href="http://www.tampano.com/backend/tampano.rdf" type="application/rss+xml">
 


If your feed is named differently, just change the relevant strings.

Cheers,
Jens

FireFox sees my feed and I have done just as jhk has suggested. I have had it running a while now and it works great with the live bookmark feature in FF.



Text Formatted Code

<link rel="alternate" type="application/xml+rss" href="http://www.scurvydawg.com/backend/scurvyd.rdf" title="RSS feed">

 


Just edit your template and all will work great Smile Big Celebration
