Setup an RSS feed

Updated 2 months ago by Branislav

Missinglettr relies on RSS feeds to discover and automatically import your newly published blog posts.

1. Creating a feed

If your site doesn't have an RSS feed, you can create one for free using Google's Feedburner.

Input a link to your blog and follow the official instructions provided by Google.

Once done, your feed will live on the link you have configured during setup:

for example: http://feeds.feedburner.com/missinglettr-blog

Keep in mind that each feedburner feed must have an unique name. We are using 'missinglettr-blog' as an example but you should name it differently.

2. (Optional) Embedding the feed in your blog

Once done, go to your website and add the link of the RSS feed to the <head> of your site:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="YOUR TITLE" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/missinglettr-blog">

Change the values of the title and href to match your Feedburner feed's title and link.

3. Connect your feed to Missinglettr

When adding a site to Missinglettr, instead of adding a link to your blog, add the link to your feed - in our example - http://feeds.feedburner.com/missinglettr-blog
