Creating a Feed from Your Website - Describing a Feed Item

Here is my sample RSS Feed. At this point, it describes just the channel.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<rss version="2.0">
<channel>
<title>RSS Class</title>
<link>http://www.wizard-creek.com</link>
<description>RSS Class: lessons, illustrations, examples and
images.</description>
</channel>
</rss>

We are now going to add an RSS Feed Item.
RSS Feed Items are described with
- title,
- description and
- link.

The following is an example of an RSS Feed Item.

<title>Using RSS to create content</title>
<description>This is an example of creating a webpage using
RSS.</description>
<link>http://www.wizard-creek.com/cio-resources.php</link>

To show that it is an item, we wrap it in <item> tags.

<item>
<title>Using RSS to create content</title>
<description>This is an example of creating a webpage using
RSS.</description>
<link>http://www.wizard-creek.com/cio-resources.php</link>
</item>

It is now added to the RSS Feed file. The RSS example feed now looks like
this.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<rss version="2.0">
<channel>
<title>RSS Class</title>
<link>http://www.wizard-creek.com</link>
<description>RSS Class: lessons, illustrations, examples and
images.</description>

<item>
<title>Using RSS to create content</title>
<description>This is an example of creating a webpage using
RSS.</description>
<link>http://www.wizard-creek.com/cio-resources.php</link>
</item>

</channel>
</rss>

The RSS Feed file is sent to the server, and the first RSS Feed Item is
available to the Internet. You can use FrontPage or DreamWeaver to do the
entire process of course. You can also use Notepad and any FTP product.

The result is this RSS Feed:
