Help with RSS

  Asked By: Faith    Date: Jan 09    Category: MOSS    Views: 676

We've got a MOSS farm with enterprise license features enabled. We've
successfully deployed the TH feedreader built by Tim Heuer. My question
is about how to get the correct feedlink from feed-enabled SharePoint
lists and libraries. The only time the convenient little RSS button
shows up is when we enable feeds on blog sites. When lists and libraries
are enabled, there's no RSS feed button that users can get the feed link
from. I can go into the list/library setting and click RSS settings, but
the URL there doesn't work as a feed link.

The blog feed link looks like this:
04C-95F3-E7EA415E9088} This one works in the TH feedreader.

The list feed link I took from the RSS settings looks like this:

Even if I try to copy the syntax of the blog link it doesn't work:
Here's my attempt at that:
82%2D4222%2D8F4A%2D86B3F765787B%7D. I tried adding the brackets around
the list ID and that doesn't work either.

At any rate, the ordinary user doesn't have access to site settings so
the thing that's really wrong is that while I've enabled everything from
Central Admin to the list/library itself, that RSS Feed icon isn't
showing up.

On the list's toolbar, click  <Actions> and choose "View RSS Feed"

Not the most intuitive place to put it given that the
blogs actually put it on the landing page, but there it is. Thanks so
much Laura! You're a great addition to this group-I've been saving your
answers to a bunch of things.

On your list's toolbar, click  <Actions> and choose <View RSS Feed>.
Then, look at the address bar in IE, and snag that URL.

Once the list/library has been RSS enabled, a new "View RSS Feed" item
should appear in the Actions menu for the list.
