Each LexBlog site includes a web feed that automatically updates when you add or edit some content. Services such as MailChimp or RSS readers look at your feed for new posts. This article explains site feeds.
For most blogs, your feed contains the 10 most recent posts. Updating older posts will not affect your feed.
Some of your readers may use an RSS feed reader to anonymously subscribe to your site. Unfortunately, we have no way of tracking how many people subscribe to your site via RSS.
Viewing your feed
There are two ways to find your site's feed:
- Go to https://www.yoursite.com/feed/
- From your homepage, find the Stay Connected widget and click the RSS icon:
LexBlog's feed services
Some Legacy LexBlog sites use Google's FeedBurner. Our current designs use an XML feed that appears similar to HTML.
We transitioned to XML-only RSS feeds because:
- FeedBurner is an outdated service that Google sporadically updates. It may be retired in the future.
- We have seen several technical issues where FeedBurner does not update correctly when a recent post is changed or deleted. XML feeds are more reliable.
- Google provides no support or troubleshooting for FeedBurner issues.
- Readers using an RSS reader will view the feed through that application, making FeedBurner's stylized feed page unnecessary.
