How to enable RSS notification for new comments? (9 posts)

    Hi.
    I would like, when any new comments are posted to my blog, that people can subscribe to new comments with RSS.

    Now RSS is enabled for new posts, and that works fine. I wish to enable that also for ANY new comments - if possible not for each separate post, but globally for all comments to any post on blog.

    Is this already built into worspress, or do I need some plugin. What do you recommned?

    Thnx, samboll.
    But this is email subscription....
    I'm looking for RSS subscription for all new comments in any post.

    Like now my blog makes one feed, to subscribe to any new post. In IE, the orenge Feed button shows Atom and Rss feed. But it is only for new posts, and not for comments to posts.

    I noticed on some WordPress sites that they have separate feed for posts and for comments. How do I do that?

    Its built in. Whether or not you actually link to the feeds is the difference. Some themes link to the comments feed, so dont.

    I see that several feeds are already built in.
    Now my theme shows only this:
    ======
    RSS 2.0
    Atom 0.3
    ======
    I would like to have it like it is here, for example:
    http://freepressblog.org/blog/2005/06/17/titles-in-wordpress-rss-comments/
    This page shows two RSS feeds:
    ======
    FreePress Blog Posts RSS Feed (new) and
    FreePress Blog Comments RSS Feed (new)
    ======

    How do I make this? Where in theme template do I search, and what code do I need to replace/insert?

    Update:
    I checked theme code, and in footer.php there is feed for both pages and comments, and it works by clicking on link. But in IE just one feed shows.

    <a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>"
    		  title="<?php _e('Syndicate this site using RSS'); ?>">
    		  <?php _e('<abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr> Feed'); ?></a>&nbsp;&bull;
    		<a href="<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>"
    		  title="<?php _e('The latest comments to all posts in RSS'); ?>">
    		  <?php _e('Comments <abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr> Feed'); ?></a>

    So, there is just one feed (for posts) in IE, on toolbar where feed icon is. And besides there is Atom feed, which in not in footer.php. Where can I find feeds, that are showing in IE toolbar?

    there isnt anything wrong with your comments feed. feeds are meant to be read by a feedreader, not a browser.

    Use feedvalidator if you want to confirm.

    Yes, yes, feeds are fine. I figured it out now. They were just listed differently in footer.php and in IE (IE has built in feed reader, so I'm not trying to read feeds in my browser - sorry for being unclear).

    I found another set of feeds in header.php, and renamed them, and added comments feed.

    All works now, all is fine.

    Thnx all for help.
