Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 15 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

You know a company is in trouble when their core features don’t work right and no one at the company notices. One of Feedster’s features is the ability to subscribe to an RSS feed of search results. However, if you click the RSS link or try and subscribe to the feed, you’ll find that it doesn’t work. The RSS feed URL is empty.

title="RSS feed of these search results" /></a>

Guess I’ll have to get my RSS search elsewhere.

Adam, There was quite a discussion about this last month but I thought I'd post my blog roundup about it since you no doubt missed it: http://corp.feedster.com/blog/archives/2006/01/the_good_die_fi_1.html Fact is we are literally around the corner (days) from releasing a new iteration of our site...with a new front end. Our back end is still running and powering our announced partner sites...and several partners we just aren't at liberty to discuss yet. But really cool stuff coming soon. So keep an eye out...the feature you are missing will be up very soon. I'll post a comment when it is up. And good luck with Tagyu...it looks really cool! Alan Graham Feedster

I am aware of the discussion from a month ago, but I don't recall seeing anything about this particular problem. It can't take more than two minutes to fix. Either kill the XML icon off the site or stick the right URL in there.
