[resolved] RSS feed for this thread - doesn't work (4 posts)

    I can't figure out how to get the RSS feed for threads into my reader (Awasu). For instance this thread:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/68006
    I click on "RSS feed for this thread" and I get "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (feed) isn't associated with any program"

    I'm going to ask on the Firefox forum as well, but wanted to ask here too since others may be encountering the same problem.

    When you hover over the RSS link, make note of the url that shows up. Use that same url, but remove the "feed:" at the beginning of it.

    So, for the one you want, http://wordpress.org/support/rss/topic/68006

    I guess I'm not being clear. I know how to add it to my reader by using http://wordpress.org/support/rss/topic/68006 - what I want to know is why I'm getting that error. It seems like clicking on that link should open something, not give me an error. How do I associate the feed with Awasu or whatever reader I choose to use?

    got the answer - on the Firefox forum someone asked:
    Have you turned on the option to make Awasu the default feed:// protocol handler? See this page:
    http://www.awasu.com/help/2.2/Program%20options/04-AdvancedOptions.html
    That did the trick.
