PROMOTE AND SYNDICATE ENFEEDIA-PUBLISHED FEEDS
Use our tools to promote a news feed.
Enfeedia offers many ways you can promote your feed to bring attention to your endeavor. You can promote your feed by including links to it and/or the feed's NewsPage on your website, in your email signature, or in any place you communicate with the public. Or better yet, embed ("syndicate") a portion of your feed (recently posted items) directly on your website which will in turn also bring search engine optimization value to your site.
You can also get code to put on your website to provide a way for site visitors to subscribe what Enfeedia call "FeedMail". Subscribers will get email delivered to them presesnting new items that you post on your feed. The mail delivery service is Blogtrottr.
We provide a small code snippet for each case. The actual snippet depends on choices you will make as you proceed.
Get Your Code Snippets for Links, Syndication, and FeedMail
To proceed, enter the the account name containing the feed you wish to promote, stylize or syndicate on your website. Then more information about the options available to you will be provided.
If you are going to syndicate your feed...
With Super Simple Syndication Method, you will be offered five pre-defined snippets corresponding to those for the Original Syndication Method, currently with two customizations offered. A future release of Enfeedia will announce additional customization opportunities.
Your site must be "php ready". By that, we mean that your host (server) account must support PHP code -- and virtually all hosting services do -- as well as ensure your code snippet gets processed by the host's PHP processor. First, your host will submit your webpage for PHP processing if its URL ends in .php, or if your .htaccess file is modified to direct the server to process PHP code in your webpage. Don't worry, our webmaster or technical support at your hosting service will understand.
Here's something interesting to try, to see if your website supports PHP. If it does, you will get a knock-your-socks-off table describing the support. You could
try it on an existing page or create a new page. For example, try both testphp.html and testphp.php.
<php phpinfo(); ?>
Finally, with Super Simple Syndication, because the code snippet refers to Enfeedia using a full URL (because the script is at Enfeedia and not on your site), your php.ini or httpd.conf file must have "allow_URL_fopen" set to ON. Typically, this is the defaut setting. Again, not to worry, your webmaster or technical support at your hosting service can help.
What's the easiet way to see what's needed? Just try it on a page with the .php extension. If that doesn't work, then your php.ini or httpd.conf file needs to be modified. But if that does work, then try it on a page with .html extension. If that doesn't work, then your .htaccess file needs to be modified.
Did you know that Wordpress -- the foundation for about 1/6 of all websites -- is built on PHP?
