    I am looking for a wide-variety of feeds. Currently I only have the four WP defaults, as the ESF and RSD doen't work for me. Anyone know any others?

    I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you looking for the url to your own feeds?

    hi all

    i did another search under "feed is not a registered protocol"
    and found the solution from wordpress user mancmanx.
    i tried the solution and it works!

    ====================================================

    The problem you are experiencing is due to the new (and not yet assimilated) feed: protocol. This protocol should (technically) launch your favorite news reader and either subscribe to or check the feed for new articles. To remove it, go to sidebar.php and change this:

    ">RSS

    to this:

    ">RSS (basically, remove "feed:")

    Do the same for the comments feed.
    ==========================================

    My original question was this,
    are there plugins to add more feeds? Or WAYS to add more feeds? http://ragingplatypus.com/ has a lot, such as...

    RSS 0.90, 0.91, 0.92, 0.93, 0.94
    RSS 1.0, 2.0, 3.0
    ESF 1.0
    XFMl 1.0
    RSD 1.0

    altoyes,
    To get the feed for this thread just copy the feed url and paste it into your feed reader. Then you can just delete "feed:" from the beginning of the line.

    For this particular thread it's: http://wordpress.org/support/rss/topic/55501

    If you're still having trouble come post back here with a little more info and I'll help you get running:

    - What software are you using to read the feeds?

    joshaube,
    I don't know of a plugin for that. I'm guessing you'd have to roll your own feed with the template tags WP makes available.

    On a side note though... I'm not sure I understand why on earth you'd want so many flavors for syndication. For the most part thats just going to confuse users. Just my opinion.

    If you want all the coolness of tons of kinds of feeds maybe Feedburner is an option.

    rustin:

    no it does not work in thunderbird.

    what is the feed reader you are referring to?

    i have just recently discovered what a feed reader is.

    do you suggest one?

    does a feedreader also download podcasts?

    and does a podcast downloader also feed reads from eg
    this thread?
