I'm looking for a tutorial or someone who can explain to me and point me to a module that will allow me to add an RSS feed to my DotNetNuke module.
I'm looking for a module to create an RSS feed, not the type that allows you to show RSS data from other sites on my own site.

I used to use the XMod reader on a client site, and the RSS-3D module has a different look to it for those who are looking for a little excitement:
DNN has a RSS Module as well, though you need to work to get it to display many feeds correctly. DNNCreative has a free tutorial on using this at:
And FWIW, the subscription to DNNCreative is well worth it. Just the tutorials in the last issue would save you more than a subscription cost in getting your RSS running.

Not sure exactly what you are after. Lee's Issue #3 does give you a great grounding in RSS for free. As for creating an RSS feed for use on your site, DNN already does that internally with most of the modules. You set the module up to syndicate and it
will produce a simple RSSv2.0 feed. The announcements module will work for most, but there may be some other purposes which this simple feed will not server. So, if you are looking to create a custom type of feed, we'll need to understand what exactly you
are going for in order to help more.
I've done a lot of things with RSS, and have offerred a lot of 'free information' here on these forums, and to users with specific needs in our growing global community. The DNNCreative tutorials were culled from that information, and from other contributors.
Lee did a lot of work putting it together, and adding to the body of information, and I recommend reading through it. I just checked, and it's still available for 'free' without registration.
