How to provide RSS feed discovery from home page:

Is there a way to provide discovery of the RSS feeds from my photo galleries when I am on the home page? As it stands now, I have to be in the “galleries” page for them to show up.

The website does not use Backlight for home page.

Thank you!

In order for RSS readers to detect your feed, you can add following statement to the header section of your home page. Update the link to point to the RSS feed you want to use:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="My RSS Feed" href="" />

Additionally you can add a link icon to point to your feed.

I don’t have a “feed” directory residing in my root. First and only instances of a “feed” directory is in each of the galleries.

Isn’t there supposed to be a feed that encompasses all of the galleries in the “galleries” directory?

Thanks for your assist, Daniel!


Hi Perry, you would need to have Backlight powering your home page.

You could look at tools such as

I figured that was going to be the case. Thought maybe there might be a workaround.

Thanks, Daniel!!

After all, there is… You can use following link for your rss feed: /backlight/feed/.

So the entry would be

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="My RSS Feed" href="/backlight/feed/" />
