In our bid to continuously improve the usability of our services we are trying to make available to you even those small little features that can enrich your experience with our products and can ease your life to that little more extent.Â And one such feature that we just finished adding is Auto-Discover capability in MySite.Â Now, adding a feed to your MySite for re-syndication is even easier.Â With the Auto-Discover capability, MySite can now automatically discover the feeds of any blog or the feeds on any web page that you want to re-syndicate.Â Â All you need to do is simply submit the blogâ€™s or the web pageâ€™s URL to MySite and the associated feed will be added!
The Auto-Discover mechanism works with the web pages with a <link> element between their <head> and </head> tags specifying the associated feed details. For example, the auto-discover code for this blog’s feedÂ is:
<link rel=”alternate” type=”application/rss+xml” title=”rapidfeeds.com RSS Feed” href=”http://rapidfeeds.com/blog/?feed=rss2” />
between the <head> and </head> tags of this document.Â Almost all aggregators are capable of discovering the feed with this method.
Note to the FeedManager Users:Â You can always find the auto-discover code for your feeds on the Publish Feed page in your RapidFeeds Manager Account.Â It is always advisable to add this code to the associated web pages.
P.S.: There is a lot of action going on in our workshop.Â So stay tuned for more updates coming your way.
