    Hi,

    I'm still trying to figure out feeds.

    So, here's my social issues feed.

    http://hubpages.com/tag/sophias+social+issues/hot/?rss

    Now, that works fine for HP. But it doesn't work for feedburner or any other feed outside of HP.

    What do I have to insert or detract for it to be accepted?


    Thanks. smile

      Have you tried removing the slash between "hot" and "?rss" ?

        No. Is that what it is?

              You need to include "hot", "best" or "latest" for the feed to work...

                Okay, I've just posted it to feedburner and pinged it. So I'm just going to check if it works. wink

                  Edweirdot, no, it doesn't post to Twitter, so I'm not sure it's working. Actually, I'm not quite sure what the feed is supposd to do anyway so I wouldn't know if it's working anyway.

                  Any input?

                  Thanks much appreciated smile

                    I don't know about posting a feed to Twitter - I never tried that...

                    If you want to know more about RSS, I wrote 2 hubs about it wink

    @Edweirda...

    Edweirdo, I've just submitted this feed to Feedcat.net and this is what it says:

    http://hubpages.com/tag/sophias+metaphy … ed/hot?rss

    "Error while getting feed data - this feed is not possible to submit now

      The link got cut off!

      Try reposting and put a space in the http, like ht tp, so that it doesn't get truncated...

        Here's another one I posted.
        It gives the same messag. I tried putting a space between ht tp but it still said the same thing.

        sad

        Thanks for all your time, Edweirdo. I appreciat e it. smile

          The RSS feed is valid, and I am not familiar with feedcat, so I don't know what the problem is sad

            Well, that formula isn't working on feedburner or any of the other feeds I submitted them to.

            I've emailed feedcat. If they come back to me, I will let  you know. Maybe we learn something. smile

            Thank you for your time. smile
