Samhain & Rss
First off, Blessed Samhain! I hope everyone takes the time to have a fun day, a safe day, and take a moment to think about your ancestors and loved ones. I have no clue what we will do tonight much less, what we will have for dinner. I do want to celebrate the day somehow though.
I redid the OSN url structure so if you use the RSS feed it’s changed. Please use https://onestarrynight.com/feed for the RSS feed. Let me know if you come across any weird problems or errors. I also have given up on Vibrant so that’s no more.
Speaking of RSS, I know I’ve gotten a lot of comments lately about people that don’t offer them, don’t know what feeds even do, or why someone would choose to use them. I suggest getting your feet wet so to speak. I do believe Firefox has a built in newsreader as well called “Live Bookmarks” but I am not too familiar with it yet.
Step One: Acquire a Feed Reader
- Sage – Firefox extension
- Google Reader
- Feed Reader
Step Two: Subscribe
Depending on your choice, after installation or registration, simply add the url of the feed to your desired reader!
So you would use the url https://onestarrynight.com/feed to add OSN to your feed reader.
Basically RSS allows you to get the content (aka the blog entries) without having to visit a website a billion times a day to see if they’ve updated. You can see if they’ve updated via their feed, read the entry, and then visit the entry (usually by clicking the title) to comment!
I hope this all made some sort of sense.
I will probably write a CSS tutorial on how I did the navigational tabs (*hint* it’s super easy!) so keep a look out for that.
From the Comments
Mari left the URL of a fantastic website about RSS, so go visit What is RSS.
