Syndicating with RSS

Blosxom makes creating an RSS feed a snap. Blosxom keeps the RSS representation at your weblog’s URL suffixed by ?flav=rss. You can point your browser at this (see Figure 9-4) but it’s most useful as fodder for aggregators or syndication services.

An RSS representation of the default blog

Appending ?flav=rss to any Blosxom URL — default blog, particular blog, even month or day archive view — gives an RSS representation of that blog. For example, the following URL produces an RSS view of April 1, 2002, on your gardening blog:

http://example.com/~sam/cgi-bin/blosxom.cgi/gardening/2002/Apr/01?flav=rss
