One of the tools in NewzCrawler is RSS Autodiscovery. When you turn it on, it checks out the pages for newsfeeds (XML versions of the page). One of the ways it does this is by looking in the header of the page for a LINK tag that points it to the feed. It should be in the HEAD section of the page, and Movable Type templates include it by default.
As usual, a great place to find out about this stuff is at dive into mark.
Something that is annoying, though, is when your newsfeed points to the “wrong” file. Now, I know there is no right and wrong with this stuff, but if you set up a nice RSS version 2.0 page, why should you steer everyone to the version 1.0 page by default?
To make sure that everyone sees your spiffy new feed with the full-post content, check the following tag in your blog template:
<link rel=”alternate” type=”application/rss+xml” title=”RSS” href=”path_to_your_xml_file” />
Make sure “path_to_your_xml_file” points to your RSS 2.0 feed (index.xml, for example). That’s it.
My newscrawler thanks you, and I thank you.
