Default Blog And RSS Help Please

I have installed Rss on my wordpress blog. I'm not sure how to use it yet. Does wordpress automatically feed each new blog post into Rss? Or do I have to do each and every new one myself?

trnz,

The intention of RSS is to create an automatic experience. If you want to learn a bit about how it is integrated into Wordpress here is a good place to start:

http://en.support.wordpress.com/feeds/

I love RSS feeds and using my Google Reader so it is worth while to make the efforts in regards to learning about RSS feeds and how to promote them.

Default RSS question

Hi there, I just figured out RSS myself. It is automatic, at least with Wordpress sites. You can check it by putting /feed after your URL like this
http://www.mydomainname.com/feed

Also, if you use Google Chrome, you have to add the google extension for the RSS reader, otherwise you get a page of gobbledegook if you go to your feed.
Hope I could help a little bit.
Allen

Hi Dave, Thanks for the help. Here is the first sentence at that link:
A "feed" (often called "RSS") is a "stream of posts" or "comments" that is updated when "new content" is published.

Five, 5 different names for BLOGPOST in one sentence! To me it was just gibberish. The word 'Feed' is meaningless to anybody who is not an RSS user. :-)

Hi Allen,
Thanks for the advice. I think the chrome extension is only for people whom want to read other peoples' blogs.
Is that right? I'm afraid I must do it step by step and at the moment I am trying to get MY blogs out to the public.
:-)
If either of you, or some other kind member could go to my blog below and click on the RSS button. If you could send me the dates of the last 3 or 4 blogposts, I will know that it is all working good style. I can then sleep easily LOL.
Thanks again :-)

Hi trnz your feed is working ok, I see the most recent posts from the 29th, 28th, 27th, etc. Sleep well!

The posts are incorporated automatically into the feed anytime a post is published.
