My RSS-o-matic
 

This form takes your web page and turns it into RSS 0.92. This is especially useful for Blogger users.

A tip of the hat from Julian Bond to Aaron Swartz who came up with the idea and the first implementation. Also a tip of the hat from Chris Karakas to Julian Bond who provided this script for others to download on his voidstar.com website.

  1. Put <span class="rss:item"> ... </span> round each item in your page.
    In Blogger you'd do this by going to your template in blogger and changing
    <$BlogItemBody$>
    to
    <span class="rss:item"><$BlogItemBody$></span>
    And then publish something to re-create the page with the new template
  2. Then put the URL of your new and modified page into the form below.
  3. Check that what you get back looks like RSS.
  4. Now you can make a link to this file like "http://www.karakas-online.de/myServices/rssify.php?url=your_web_page_url"
  5. Finally add a link to it on your web page, something like this:
