    Just starting with RSS and not sure what I should do.

    1 - I put my website url, including http:// in for RSS feed url. Was that correct?

    2 - Placed widget in my sidebar and nothing appears on screen. The RSS widget at the bottom of the template has now disappeared. Do I need to do something to activate it?

    I am not surprised by this question and the frustration. The user should NOT be required to enter the RSS url at all. The plugin should figure it out itself, or at minimum, should only requires the blog website url

    By all means, Matulini, your website rss url could be your website url with "/feed " appended, or "/?feed=rss2" appended. Try it out.

    My Vocalyze widget wouldn't require the RSS url input. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/vocalyze
