How to generate RSS feeds using Drupal?
Also, what exactly syndication is doing and how to use syndication module?

First consider searching the site first, because this was answered in the forums... yesterday.

There's no extra work required to set up a rss feed. Point your browser to ?q=node/feed and there you have it. :)

As for syndication, it's the act of sharing your content, via RSS/XML feeds or whatever. The syndication.module IIRC needs to DROP some tables, CREATE some others and copying the .module file. It's all in the INSTALL file

I've got RssReader (http://www.rssreader.com) and Pluck (both free), and neither of them will accept drupal's default generated xml. Can anyone suggest an RSS reader that will works with drupal sites?

I use Opera 7.54. It has very nice RSS-reader integrated into its mailer.

Another reader that works and is free for Windows XP is Tristana. Be sure to get the reader as they have other software that is not free.

I use NetNewsWire, www.ranchero.com

It's mac only, though.

I use Popuload (http://www.popuload.com, it's free and different from other RSS readers I've come across...can't help but pimp it!) -- it works fine with Drupal sites.

Just tested the new email client called Thurnderbird and it has a built in RSS reader that works with Drupal RSS feeds. Nothing to install, just add the RSS URL address and it displays the page.


And it is FREE!

I have Thunderbird (Mac) and it steadfastly refuses to add feeds from drupal.org or groups.drupal.org when the RSS Logo links are clicked. Harumph!

I use iGoogle for a great deal of my daily feeds.
I also use Firefox 2's Live bookmark feature.

In Drupal 7, you just have to go to /admin/structure/blocks and publish the block named "Newsfeeds". Then you can go to your website and you will see the rss icon in the published position.

There's no block (by default) called Newsfeeds

I think this is the oldest thread I've seen on Drupal. 10 years tomorrow.

Oldest thread and still people have similar issues :(
I think the actual code for RSS haven't been updated for the last 10 years.
