I'm evaluating the FeedforAll tool to determine whether it work for our purposes. I would like to manually create an RSS feed on a daily basis that contains 5 or 6 new items -- each of them a news story from various websites. My understanding is that I need to create a location on my own site from which readers can find and subscribe to the RSS feed. Then, upload my feed on a daily basis to the folder behind this location. When I'm using the tool, however, I cannot understand how to create a new item. The Feed Wizard Creation tool no longer appears with a prompt. There must be a way to create a new item, without the wizard, but I'm having trouble figuring it out. Thank you.

It appears that I am missing the "Items" button bar. Is there a way to make this bar appear, or should I re-install the software, perhaps?

With regards to what RSS is and how to implement it, you have the right of it. As for the Items tab, are you running FFA for Mac or Windows?

Also, for the basics on how to create an RSS Feed using the program, have a look at this video tutorial:

Thank you. I am using FFA for the Mac. I have watched the video, but it walks through a feed creation using the wizard, which is not appearing for me.

That's a bit strange. When you're in FFA, you should see the feed list on the right and then two sets of tabs. One of those sets will have Feed, Items and Image. If you go under the Items tab, you should be able to start creating new items or editing existing items.

Thank you. When I'm under the "Items" button, there's a "New" folder at the top left hand corner, but it just enables me to create a new feed. I don't know where there's a button to push, or a line on which to enter a new item. I'm sure it's something simple I'm missing.

Sorry for the problem with the "Items" option in the FeedForAll Mac.

Can you please an email (salesatfeedforall .com) with a screenshot of the main FFA Mac screen.

Also, with FFA Mac running, in the menu bar, are the following listed: FeedForAll, File, Edit, Item, Image, View and Window?

Under the toolbar, there are buttons/tabs named Feeds, Items, and Image. When you click on each of them the icons that show in the toolbar should change.

Can you click on each of the Feeds, Items, and Image buttons and let me know if the toolbar changes when you click on each of them?

Thanks

Nice to learn from here. With FFA Mac running, in the menu bar, are the following listed: FeedForAll, File, Edit, Item, Image, View and Window? Can I use image to display our bags products?

To display images of your products, enter an image in the Items' Description field using FFA Mac's HTML editor. In FFA Mac's menu bar, select the Item tab and under Description, click: Edit HTML. In the Feed Description HTML Editor, select: Insert Image and enter the Image URL. Feed readers will display this image with the feed's Item.

In FFA Mac's menu bar, the Image tab allows an image to be associated with an RSS feed. This might be a logo or company logo. Feed readers typically display this image with the feed's Title.
