Autodiscovery - What do I do?

  1. I use Blog Catalog and they require Autodiscovery to update my blog posts. My posts won't be update unless I have Autodiscovery and I can't figure out how to add that to my blog. They give an HTML code to add to to my header, however, I can't figure out how to access place the HTML the code in my header. Here's the instructions' they give:

    Adding that one line of code to your template will make it easier for people to subscribe to your RSS feed. Here's how:

    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml"
    title="RSS Feed for petefreitag.com"
    href="/rss/" />

    The above link tag should be added inside the head tag of your HTML document.

    You will of course need to change the value of the title and href attributes to fit your needs.

    If your feed is an ATOM feed you will want to change the type to application/atom+xml.

    If you have multiple feeds for the url you can just specify multiple link tags.
