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.
