Well here I am attempting to demonstrate how to post a web feed to your WordPress page with no WordPress skills what so ever. I guess there is no better way to show how easy it is huh?
Well of course the first thing you need to do is go over to WebRSS and sign up for a free account. Once you have done that you are ready to start adding feeds to the web gadgets menu. The easiest way is to click “Manage Widget”
The Widget Manager opens up and you now have to “Add A New Feed” from the tabs up at the top. Then add the “Feed Source URL” to the dialogue box. In most cases you would go to the blog and “right” click on the RSS icon and then select “Save Link Location” and then paste that in there. In WordPress they make you actually add the RSS option to your page so most people don’t think to do that. The smarter among us will make you feel “little” if you ask how to do that, so I am here to tell you that your feed is always located in the /feed/ folder of your WordPress page. As you can see in my case it is https://jeremycrow4life.wordpress.com/feed/
In the two examples on the side you see the different choices that you have for your feed. The feed will be on the right so that you can see what changes are made. I suggest you keep it simple in the beginning until you have a better idea what you are doing. The “Open Links in New Window” probably should be clicked “Yes” unless you want people angry that they get lost after clicking a link.
Once you click “Save and Grab Code” you will have choices as to how your code can be stored. I suggest “iFrames” because it usually will meld with your website or blog design better. The first two choices usually require the knowledge of a coder, and most coders don’t come to me for advice, let’s get real here.
Ok here comes the hard part, and as I said I am learning this as I go too. You now need to add that chunk of code into your blog. We would have to assume that the way to do that is some sort of “Insert Code” function. This is done by clicking the “Text” tab at the top,
Now that you are staring at the code of the page, you just need to know where to insert that code and how to do it. In this example I just went to the bottom of the page and pasted it in, so that I could move it around afterwards. It ends up looking like this when you are still working on your post.
Hopefully you did it right and the end result will look like what we have below here. If it isn’t to your liking you can always go back and change it up a bit. Make it wider, make the placement better, change the font. It’s up to you.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, but I am getting my ass back to Blogger where it belongs. Ta Ta!
