CKS:EBE RSS Autodiscovery

Does the RSS Link light up on your SharePoint Blog? If it doesn’t, a few quick changes in SharePoint Designer could make it happen.

RSS Autodiscovery

RSS Autodiscovery depends on a tag like this in your <head></head> section of your HTML:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Posts" href="{$rssLink}" />

I have the link tag in my Head.xsl for my current theme. You can find the Head.xsl in the Themes folder in the folder with the same name as your currently selected theme.

Modify your Web Page

If you look at the Post.aspx and Home.aspx pages in the root of your CKS:EBE site in SharePoint Designer, you may see the following three lines in one or the other, if not, add the lines to both files in Code View.

<asp:content runat="server" contentplaceholderid="PlaceHolderAdditionalPageHead">    
  <EBE:PostList runat="server" transform-xslname="Head.xsl" /> </asp:content>
