Converts the selected lines to a RSS feed.


  • Converts the selected lines to RSS feed tags (Rich Site Summary, also known as Really Simple Syndication).
  • Interface for modifying news items and entering any missing information.
  • Three modes for entering news items (titles only, titles + links, and titles + links + descriptions).


  • To create a RSS feed: open a blank document (shortcut: click the "New" button on the toolbar while holding the Shift key down). Type the titles of news items that you would like to include in the RSS feed (one title per line). Select the lines containing the titles, and invoke the plugin. When the wizard dialog appears, enter RSS feed information including web page addresses related to each news title. Optionally, enter a description for each news item. Click "OK" to generate the RSS tags. The tags will appear in the Output window. Right click inside the Output window and select "Open in New Window." Finally, save the file with a *.rss or *.xml extension such as MySite.rss. Upload it to your web site and add a link to it from your homepage or other page on the site. Optionally, add the following tag to the <head>. . .</head> section to make it easier for RSS-enabled browsers to find your RSS news feed: <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS" href="MySite.rss" >.
