She sent me link, looks like basic site using one of those site builder programs. Doesn't look like there is any backend. In this case manually edited is really only way to go. In any event my philosophy has always been you need to crawl before you walk, hopefully this provide some understanding about the basics.

>>1. What information do you want to provide via the feed?

I'd like to get a good RSS URL (that's done, I think) -- which will update every time that page is updated. Or I can manually add in things with that <text> block, if I can place it correctly.


>>2. What CMS (Content Management System) or other software is running your website? (e.g. Joomla, Wordpress, etc.)

I have no clue about this. I use

I create pages by typing directly in, html code, by hand, myself.. if that means anything.

Ouch.

Maybe there's a desktop app that can generate the XML? The options are pretty limited with that kind of setup. My best advice would be that it's time to move up to a setup that's a little more powerful. Maybe a cheap GoDaddy or HostGator account with built-in Wordpress support or something.

I don't understand. Both blocks of code, the lines in the header and the block with the graphic, have myfeed.xlm in the code.

That's not the way it works, for it automagically update itself you need a server side script and something it can pull the content from like a database. You pages appear to be hardcoded so that is really not an option.

That is link to login into you control panel, makes no difference providing the link but don't give anyone the information to login.

CMS is short for content management sytem. There is two main components, the scripts and the database. In a sense the forum software you are using now is CMS. This allows you to enter information and mange your site through a web interface, the difference between waht you are using and a CMS is that it stores this information in database. From there scripts will pull this information and generate web pages, RSS feeds etc.

Sounds like I *can't* do what I want to do -- automatically -- but, as you said, code it in periodically with new links.

Where does that <text> block go?

You need to edit the feed file myfeed.xml, has nothing to do with your HTML page.
