Subject Re: Need help regarding RSS feed in forrest
Date Fri, 18 Jan 2008 09:26:09 GMT

Hi rgardler  thanks for the reply. I followed the link provided by u and did
the same but not able to render the RSS feeds. I did like this
My feedDescriptor is like this and i put it in a folder like ->

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <feed id="BBCSport_UK">

and i have made an entry in site.xml  like this

<technology label="Technology" href="ConnectM/Technology/" tab="Technology">
  	<overview label="Overview" href="technology.html" /> 
  	<m2m label="M2M" href="m2m.html" />
  	<java label="Java" href="java.html" />
	<java label="RSS Link" href="Rss.html" />  

where Rss.xml is the feed xml file. Whenever i click on "RSS Link" nothing
is getting displayed.

Please help......
