    I have a static page of newsletter PDF links, which is updated each quarter. I would like to create the RSS feed for this. Can someone please give me some pointers on what I need to get started? Some widget? or plugin? Special template? Thanks!

    I would suggest changing it from being a static page, to being an archive page for a custom post type called "pdf".

    At that point point, the feed would be ready at:

    http://example.com/feed/?post_type=pdf.

    That would be my choice!

    CPT, category, something using a post. Anything but a page. Pages are intended to be static content, so they don't do the RSS thing.

    And even if we hack a feed to include the pages, edits don't ping, so the RSS feed still wouldn't get updated.
