    I’ve read through widgets, forums and support on the site and can’t seem to find out how I add the “RSS feed for this blog” icon/capability onto my blog — so people who visit can click on it and automatically get my blog entries in their email. Is it an upgrade? Or am I having stupid moment?

    The blog I need help with is thelongestchapter.com.

    We need a link to the blog please.

    This FAQ I got by searching for “email update” will explain how to offer email updates to your readers through feedburner: http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/10/11/how-can-i-offer-email-updates/ . In my experience it works very well.

    What rss address did you put in the rss widget, exactly? Your theme already has the RSS button for itself built right in.

    So I read above, BUT if I want an RSS button AND/OR people to be able to subscibe via email ON THE TOP RIGHT CORNER, what do I do?

    Shari Weiss: sharisaxisoutthere.wordpress.com

    Also if I bought a domain name: sharisax.com — can I use that in some way for the above blog?

    You would need to purchase the Domain Mapping upgrade to attach a given domain to a blog here. Details are here:

    http://faq.wordpress.com/category/domain-mapping/

    And if you want the RSS button in the top right corner, you can either use a theme that puts it there automatically (MistyLook does, I think) or you can put it in a sidebar widget at the top of the right sidebar.

    It would make it easier on the forum volunteers if you change the link on your Profile Website to your WP.com blog. Then we could just click your name and see your blog.

    raincoster, sorry but I don’t understand “change the link on [my] Profile Website to [my] WP.com blog”
    Can you help me understand what you mean, i.e., what exactly I need to do?

    The link that is attached to your name here is http://online.sfsu.edu/~sharisax . You change that on your Profile page, under “Website”. Sorry I wasn’t clearer.

    Hello all,

    I have successfully put rss feeds from the google reader on my blog. However the feeds display the icons oddly on the blog. ( http://www.wii-virtual-console-games.info ). Someone told me that it was a plugin wrapper problem, but I did not have any bookmarking plug-ins in use. The only thing I can think of that could have mucked things up is that I am using Wp O’matic and simplepie plugins. I was also advised to put Addthis plugin on my site too. I’m not sure where I should start to look to solve this problem.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    You are in the wrong forum and need to be over at WordPress.ORG. Our software here works differently and we won’t be able to help you.

    I have changed my profile website. Thank you for the instruction. NOW, back to RSS feed. How EXACTLY do I put the words “Subscribe by Email” and a box for readers to put in their email for when I update — on top of SEARCH?
    Thank you

    THX, thesacredpath — I have added FEEDS, however, NOT the one I particularly wanted. My hope was that my readers — mostly very new blog readers who don’t even know Feeds — could simply put in their email address and receive my updates. Can you or anyone else help with that?
