    Is is really as tough as it looks?

    I just want to add the icon link and have people get the feed. I went to the RSS Widget but couldn't find the DL link. Even if I do, do I have to do a bunch of other set-up?

    That the site is updated, the topic, and maybe a snippet.

    Is this the standard wordpress feed - http://example.con/feed? Because right now, no one really knows what you're asking

    Okay. Simply:

    Get the RSS Feed icon at the bottom.
    People click and subscribe.

    The way it is described when I subscribe is:

    "What is an RSS feed?
    RSS feeds provide frequently updated content published by a website. They are commonly used for news and blog websites, but are also used for distributing other types of digital content, including pictures, audio, or video. Feeds can also be used to deliver audio content (usually in MP3 format) which you can listen to on your computer or portable device. This is referred to as podcasting.

    A feed can have the same content as a webpage, but it's often formatted differently. When you subscribe, Internet Explorer automatically checks the website and downloads new content so you can see what is new since you last visited the feed."

    I don't know how to be more clear.
