It only opens to a page that shows the feed markup. How can I use this as a drop-down menu in the bookmarks toolbar of Mozilla Firefox, like I can with my other feeds?

What feed formats does Firefox support?

You can add that feed to your bookmarks as a "Live Bookmark" in firefox by doing the following:

1. Click "Bookmarks" on the main toolbar
2. Click "Manage Bookmarks"
3. In the new window click "File"
4. Click "New Live Bookmark"
5. Give it a title, paste the url of the feed to "Feed Location", and you're off to the races!

You can move it around from within "Manage Bookmarks" I put it in my Bookmarks toolbar folder for easy access

Aha, "New Live Bookmark"! I didn't know of that menu item. That's what I was doing wrong. It works great now, thanks.

[Blunderov] I like your avatar - "thinking is free". Philosophy, I have read, is catching on amongst those unfortunate British youngsters who have few or none of the more usual sources of intellectual stimulation in their grey and waterlogged lives. The slogan that was used to promote the idea was "Philosophy is just like thinking, only louder."

The newly released Internet Explorer Beta has integrated RSS feeds and a much improved GUI featuring tabbed browsing. It works fine on my system. I'm favourably impressed.

Best regards.

Best regards.

Thats good news.. Most youngsters just choose to listen to rap music and dress like 50 Cent (or some other foul influence.) If it were only globally "cool" to think for yourself, we'd have a much brighter group of kids to inherit the world.

As far as IE7, I havent been a fan of previous IE efforts.. I'm mostly a firefox/mozilla purist. But I am impressed by the improvements MS has made.

Lucifer you may wish to add the following <link> tag within <head> for auto-discovery thus making the live bookmarks easier for users to add. You can do this in the YaBB template and of course on other pages of the site.

Code:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS" href="http://www.churchofvirus.org/bbs/feed.xml"/>
