DR. JIM'S RSS FEED

copy and paste this URL into your RSS Reader, not the next link

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication".  An RSS Feed is a tool that I have placed on my web site that enables me to notify you that I have added information to some aspect of my several ministry web sites.  If someone were to say to me, "How can I know if and when you have made changes to any of your web sites or ministry pages?"  My answer:  "If you will download the free RSS Reader Download RssReader as exe  rssreader.exe, this will enable me to notify you automatically and immediately that I have made changes or added something to my web sites, and you will be able to view those changes immediately by clicking on the link that is sent to your reader.

After downloading and running the free RSS Reader Download RssReader as exe  rssreader.exe, you will need to copy and paste the following link into your Reader  "http://www.brettell.org/RSS/rss.xml" (minus the quotation marks).  You do this by clicking on the ADD icon in your Reader.  Then follow the simple instructions, and BINGO! you are up and running with an RSS Reader that will notify you every time I make a change or add something to my web sites.

SO -- YOU WANT AN RSS FEED FOR YOUR WEB SITE?

So, you want to create an RSS Feed for your own web site?  Here's a simple way to do it.  Copy the following code.  Paste it into a blank page using the program you use to upload new pages to your web site.  Name the page "rss.xml" (without quotation marks). Then, change the <title> to suit yourself. Then change the <link> to your web site. Then, change the <description> to describe the new item you have just added to your web site.

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
- <rss version="2.0">
- <channel>
  <title>JABBM RSS Feed</title>
  <link>http://www.brettell.org/</link>
  <description>My JABBM Feed</description>
- <item>
  <title>Dr. Jim's Blog Site</title>
  <link>http://community.cfaith.com/blogs/jimbrettell/default.aspx</link>
  <description>Blogging is a means of getting information to others for their consideration.</description>
  </item>
  </channel>
  </rss>

Now, every time you add something to your web site, copy the following code:

- <item>
  <title>Dr. Jim's Blog Site</title>
  <link>http://community.cfaith.com/blogs/jimbrettell/default.aspx</link>
  <description>Blogging is a means of getting information to others for their consideration.</description>
</item>

Now, insert that code after any </item> (note the forward slash). Then, change the <title>, the <link>, and the <description> to suit yourself.  You can add as many <item> as you desire.

YOU'RE NOT FINISHED YET!

Now, go to the following page:

http://www.brettell.org/RSS/rss.xml

Now, copy the entire page.  Place it on a brand new HTML page that you can upload to your website. Before uploading to your server, modify the text to suit yourself. Place both pages in the same subdirectory on your server. Give this page an .xml extension. For example:

 http://www.brettell.org/RSS/rss.xml

Now, upload this page to your web site.
