I was thinking more along the lines of including the link in the header of the 'Recent Videos' page (http://videoblogging.info/videos). Not a big deal, though. > The button points to <URL:http://videoblogging.info/ping/?mode=__rss&gt; and > that's the URL of the feed. Is the feed not working for you or? After Jay replied to my message, I re-checked the link. You're right, the RSS feed is there. I was misled, because my browsers (Windows: Firefox, IE6) won't actually open the feed. However, I discovered that I can download the feed and open it in a text editor. The source of the problem, I think, is how you linked to the RSS file. Most of the time, the browser can see the .xml or .rss extension, so it knows that it *can* open the feed. Again, this is not a big deal, because the link is readable by news aggregators. It's just different than what I normally see. Thanks again, -Rick
