RSS Feeds not updating?

I've read all the other questions already and the answer sounds like it just doesn't work right in Yahoo! is that right? I have to delete my feeds, save that, and then put them back up again EVERY time. They've never updated.

Also, I tried to add a feed from and 360 gave me an error. I tried both the RSS, and the Yahoo specific feeds, and both gave errors...

I think what you have to do just to complain to Yahoo Customer Care. This is a very common problem and many users are suffering this.

Just inform them and wait, they will resolve it soon!

How to make my site RSS enable,so that users will get alerts...?

Hi all, first let me clarify what is rss in a very short. When site is enabled with RSS if any user subscribe/bookmark that page so that he gets the alerts on any kind of updations on that particular page or site. So how to make it. I have a site named which is a small effort to put a famous artist online and all his works. There will be frequent updations in the site and i want to alert the user on this, so along my way to this, some one has given a hint about this RSS. Now i want to implement that immedietly so that the traffic to the site increases and so the money which will be helpful to that artist. In a short period i was able to put google adsense in my my site is generating revenue ofcourse not much just about 5$ to 6$. Please help me i'll will be thankfull to you. Thanks in advance

RSS = Real Simple Syndication

If you haven't built your site yet, use a ready made website framework which already has RSS built in.

So, take Dotnetnuke as an example...

If your site is built using DNN as a framework, every module you deploy by default has an RSS feature you can turn on or off with a click.

Otherwise, you have to embed the code in your pages, specifying what RSS versions you wish to support.

RSS feeds?

Everytime I try to enter a RSS feed into my 360...I get "told" that the URL cannot be found. I am doing exactly as the directions are laid out on how to do it. When I "copy shortcut" nothing happens. In laymens terms can you tell me what it is to do?

There is a major issue with RSS feeds and Yahoo is aware of it.I have been told there is no time table for when it will be fixed.But its been an issue for quite a while now and hopefully they will do something about it soon.
Reply:Your welcome. Report It

Reply:The only thing I can say is the URL must end with xml. Check that once.

There may not be a real "directory" and "file" here to speak of. It is extremely common for web server software (like Apache HTTP Server) to allow URLs to map to virtual locations, and for websites to make use of that functionality. " is very likely just an alias which tells the web server software to run some back-end CGI script whose output is what you see at that URL.

RSS on my 360?

On my Yahoo! 360 I want to add RSS feed from Yahoo Answers... but I tried a couple different things and i'm obviously doing something wrong. Help... step by step?

RSS on my 360?
%26lt; Copied and pasted from %26gt;

Follow these steps:

1. Go to your other blog or personal web site (or any site that provides them) and look for a little orange button like this (sorry, I can't get it to paste the example here. Wrong format. Try following link above for example) This shows that you can syndicate your content via RSS. Usually, this clickable button links directly to an RSS file. (The page looks like raw code, but don't let it scare you!)

2. To add the RSS URL to your Yahoo! 360° Feeds module, right-click on the orange XML button to "Copy Shortcut." Or click on the "XML" button and use "Ctrl-C" on your keyboard to copy the URL found in the address bar of your browser.

3. Use "Ctrl-V" to paste the URL into the field above. When you're done, click the "Save" button below.

Also... sometimes it can be a little glitchy. I do know from experience that if it at least holds in the space where you add it, even if it doesn't show on your page immediately... if you give it time. It will show up eventually. If it's not holding, or you are getting errors. Try again the next day as this problem usually sorts itself out rather quickly.

RSS feed: can anyone give examples, please ?

I'm embarrassed to ask this, because I'm fine with podcasts and downloads and almost everything digital. But although I've read what it is, the part of my brain which ought to understand is obviously missing.

It would be a real help, if you use RSS, if you could explain to me why and how you use it. In other words, tell me what you do.

I know, I'm pathetic. But lovable :)

RSS feed: can anyone give examples, please ?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS is a method of pushing news and related media to a user that subscribes to the RSS feed. The user utilizes what is known as a RSS aggregrator to consume the RSS feeds to present each feed's topics to the user. Typically, an RSS feed's entry will contain such things as a title/headline, post date, a brief synopsis of the article and a link to the full story. Sometimes (with an RSS 2.0 feed) images, audio and video are provided with the entry as well. Yahoo! wrote the RSS 2.0 Media specification that developers use to write their RSS feeds. RSS Feeds must comply with a specification to be properly consumed. The most popular feed specifications are RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0 and Atom.

RSS Feeds

You can find an available RSS feed on a site when you see the square orange RSS icon (although some sites have not updated and use an orange block that says XML). Clicking on the icon, you will be provided with either the ability to add the feed to your aggregator or copy and paste the URL to your aggregrator.

Here is what the icon looks like:

Browsers with RSS Support

RSS has largely been overlooked for the last couple of years but the lastest browser versions have now integrated an RSS aggregator into the browser itself so you don't have to have separate software to consume RSS feeds. These browsers support RSS:

Apple's Safari (Mac Only)

Internet Explorer 7.0 (Windows Only)

Firefox 2.0 (Mac, Windows, Linux)

Flock Beta 0.7.8 (Mac, Windows)

RSS Feed Aggregators

If you don't have one of these browsers or do not want to use one, separate feed aggregators are:


My Yahoo! RSS


This all may sound really complex, but once you start using RSS you'll find it amazing easy, productive, and informative.

Best of luck.


I use RSS for news, blogs, and even product support. I like to keep up-to-date with world news and I also like tech gear. But I don't have the time to browse all the news and gear sites everyday. Instead, I get the articles sent to me and if it sounds interesting, I'll go and read the entire article. I also save some of the feeds in my reader so I can reference in the future. Digg is a good example as you can subscribe to any category or subcategory of topics so you only get the feeds that important to you.

I also use RSS for blogs. By doing this, I can receive feeds when a new post is added without having to visit the site periodically to check for new posts.

I also receive RSS feeds on product support. Some of the vendors that I use will publish updates, product announcements, and bug reports so I know right away by way of RSS.

Lastly, I also receive RSS feeds on sites with tutorials. This is a big help for me at work. It's nice to review new tutorials descriptions and if its something that I would like to learn, then I follow the link to the tutorial.

The great thing about RSS is that I often read over feeds and then a couple of weeks later, something comes up and I remember that I saw something related to the subject in my RSS. Then, I just search the feeds to find the topic and it's a great, big help.
