I'd like to create a feed for all my comic-con hubs. That's because I work each year and also, sometimes, cover for the press. So, I thought I'd create some and then put it in a feed. I will add to it every year. I also still have a lot to add because I've got hundreds of photos that I would have to scan because photos weren't always digital.
Can someone tell me how to do it, please?
Thank you so very much!
Here's an example of a feed for my HTML5 tutorials;
http://hubpages.com/author/simeonvisser … atest/?rss
You should change the username and then html5 to a tag that's on all of the hubs that you want in your feed. So make sure all those hubs have the same tag and use that to create your feed.
I only figured out days ago how to do this
I've been trying to do that for the past three hours and haven't managed that. I went to the tags on the right side where the keywords were.Then I put in a unique word that I put in for all the other hubs that I wanted to share. Then I went out of edit and clicked on the tag. It was supposed to generate an RSS feed. For whatever reason, it didn't. I tried it so many times.
In case I'm missing something, would it be too much to ask if you can detail the exact steps in case I'm missing something very inconsequential?
As far as I know you can't click somewhere on HubPages to create the RSS feed. You have to create the link to the RSS feed yourself. So take the URL that I gave you, replace my username with your username and change my html5 tag with your tag. That should be your custom RSS feed. Make sure you also have ?rss at the end.
Thanks very much. I'll do that tomorrow. My head is quite done in at this point! I've done about 12 hours on Hub Pages today!
Thanks Simeon. Visser is an Afrikaans or Dutch name, by the way. From where do you hale?
What you've mentioned is one way of doing it, but that doesn't create the feed itself. You need to apply the rss url to an RSS module. That is, assuming it is here on HP that you wish to display the feed.
It's easier just to learn the code yourself. Copy and save it and alter it as needed. The code is as simeon said
ht tp://hubpages.com/author/authorname/tag/latest hot or best/?rss
Make sure you reconnect the http, change authorname to your's, tag to your tag, and latest hot or best to whichever you wish to display.
Paste that into an RSS feed module in your hubs, or other RSS feed reader elsewhere on your blog or whatever.
Hope that helps!
Edwierdo's hub on creating Rss feeds gives you step by step info on how to do it.. create the tags and wait for a few hours for them to get updated and you are on your way to having your RSS feeds
sofs is right, the easiest way is to give each of your comic-con hubs a tag that is unique and is shared by your hubs. Then click on the tag, up will come your hubs. Then just add /?rss to the end of the URL.
For example, I have given each of my hubs a tag that identifies them as a group: I have given each of my technology hubs the tag stmtech. When I click on the tag, a page comes up with only my tech hubs: //hubpages.com/tag/stmtech/hot, I left out the http: so it would not be a link here. To change this to a RSS, just add /?rss to the end of it: //hubpages.com/tag/stmtech/hot/?rss, it is now an RSS.
You can also substitute /hot/ with latest or best.
Edweirdo's hub is: http://hubpages.com/hub/Promote-Your-Ol … -RSS-Feeds
The problem is that when I create the tags, and click on them, the hubs do not come up as a group. In fact, even though I've put in tags, and made sure that the words are in the hub itself, the hubs do not come up.
Sophia, it may take several hours for HP to recognize the tags. If you have just put them in, you might wait overnight and check again...
Wilderness is right. Nothing shows for sometime hours after you insert the tag. If you click on the tag you get the message No hubs found. Just leave them a few hours and they'll appear.

I'm trying to understand RSS feeds. I think the capsule is a reader that aggreates feeds from other websites, but I'm not sure

I have grouped some of my hubs. Is there anyway to get a RSS feed to just that group.

Hi HP, I was laying in bed last night thinking about hubbing (as you do, lol) and I thought it would be really useful if readers could subscribe to an RSS feed for one of my article groups rather than just latest, best...
