My former webmaster set up a blog feed and podcast feed for my site. Now I’d like to add an announcement feed.
I’ve checked the “WordPress Feeds” and the “Customizing Feeds” documentation and it strikes me as in need of great improvement: I found it totally confusing and very incomplete.
As a former tech writer, I’d love to work with somebody with a lot of feed experience in WordPress who can give me the info needed to let me rewrite these docs. It strikes me that two separate pieces of documentation are needed. The first piece of documentation would show you how to identify and publish one or more feeds through your WordPress-based website. The second piece of documentation would show you how to republish your feed(s) through FeedBurner, and, if desired, take advantage of FeedBurner’s MyBrand feature (that lets you preserve your domain name in the feed URL).
I get so much out of WordPress and I very much want to give back to the community. I know that with some technical handholding I could create high quality documentation in a key area, in which the existing docs are in great need of improvement. If you’d like to help me, perhaps you could respond in this thread so that others will know that somebody has expressed interest.
