RSS feed support is turned off by default whenever you start a blog from inside of LPQuicksite. RSS, which stands for Really Simple Syndication gives your blog’s readers a way to know when the blog has been updated, even when they are not viewing the web site.

How can I edit the options for my RSS feed?

From within the LPQuicksite interface, hover over Edit Content and then click on Blog. On the top menu, you should now see RSS Feed as an option to edit. Clicking it will bring up a new box with the RSS options inside.

From within the RSS Options you can:

  • Enable and Disable the RSS Feed Support
  • Give Your E-mail Address (as the blog’s owner)
  • Add a Copyright Notice for the RSS Feed’s Content

Once you have made all the changes you wish to make, click on the Ok button. The Close button will Close the window, and not save your changes.

What is my LPQuicksite Blog RSS URL?

Your RSS feed will look something like this:

http://www.yourdomainname.com/rss.php

Replacing www.yourdomainname.com with your actual domain name. Also an RSS link and icon will be added to your blog’s template.

The major benefit to having an RSS feed is that readers of your blog can subscribe using a number of different online or program-based aggregators. Some examples of RSS feed aggregators are:

By having an RSS feed, you give your web site viewers even more options on how they can follow your updates, and also how you can distribute your content.

Importing a RSS feed into your blog

Enter the URL of the RSS feed you would like to import, then click the Continue button. On the next page you will see a list of articles you can import to your blog. Choose which entries you want to import into your blog by checking/unchecking the checkbox. Checked entries will be imported, Unchecked entries will not.
