    hi. id like for people to be able to subscribe to my page via rss. is that the rss option in the widgets section? it says "enter feed URL here." is that like google reader url? i know this is stupid question but id appreciate your help!

    The blog I need help with is thatchickfrombk.wordpress.com.

  2. I don't think it has anything to do with Google Reader but you can use that widget anyway if you like.

    Maybe this helps...

  3. 1. Your feed is your blog's name followed by slash followed by feed followed by slash. eg.: http://vikasgupta.wordpress.com/feed/

    2. Get a nice looking RSS button from somwhere and link it to your feed address as given above. You can use feedburner too but you are not presently so technically advanced.

    3. The RSS widget is a different thing. That is to display feeds from other sites such as your tweeter feeds etc.

  4. <b>Typo above; I mean http://onecoolsite.wordpress.com </b>

  5. Related question: I'm running my Word Press blog on my news website, but I'd like to find the code that would automatically show the headline and date of my latest blog on the site's home page. Any idea how to do that?

    eepublishers, I don't think you can remove the wordpress logo from that feed. But if you use a feed distribution service like Feedburner (described in the thread above) you can get a cleaner looking feed. Still has promo type stuff on it though.

    Other feed distribution services will give you different looks probably.
