    /wp-rss2.php is the feed and /index.php is the actual site. Since bloglines allows you to subscribe to feeds, /wp-rss2.php is the correct choice.

    As for /index.php, obviously it’s not a feed URL, but a WP blog typically provides link tags in the head of the page pointing to one or more syndication feeds for the site (which some rss readers properly redirect to). But to avoid problems do as macmanx points out and use /wp-rss2.php.

    The above might be the answer to my question.

    I want to publicize a blog feed. The various submittal forms ask for a link, and on other sites I’ve seen the links are .xml or .rdf files.

    Are you saying it’s different with WP, that it should be http://mysite.org/wp-rss2.php
    ?

    The reason it’s a .php file is because the content is created dynamically through WordPress and PHP, and not just saved to a static file. But most RSS readers and aggregators should have no problem with it.

    Understood and thanks for that quick reply!
