    All should work well with WP - if they don't then just don't use them :)

    http://blogspace.com/rss/readers is one list, and this is another:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_news_aggregators

    I found that you need to dig through to see which one suits you best. (FeedDemon for me, best $30 I've spent on a program).

    hugoboss - the wikipedia link above has good explanations of RSS.

    Where is your blog with the bad links ?

    Presentation > Theme editor > footer.php

    <a href="feed:<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>">Entries (RSS)</a>
    and <a href="feed:<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>">Comments (RSS)</a>.

    remove the 'feed:' to make

    <a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>">Entries (RSS)</a>
    and <a href="<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>">Comments (RSS)</a>.

    Or you might like to look at some nicer themes instead ?

    RSS; "feed" out did it ..what was it in for? What now with RSS?
    I will look at other themes ..sure!

    Leave the RSS.
    Those who use RSS will know what to do.
    Those that do not will probably ignore it or learn about it.

    It's not a problem to leave the RSS links there or you could remove them - it makes no difference :)

    I hope your daughter likes her blog !

    So do I, I lost contact with her -:)
    If I chose another theme template I suppose I will have to translate it?
    Thanx a lot!
