Using RSS Feeds to Track Changes in WebSpace

Note: When creating RSS feeds in WebSpace, use Internet Explorer for best results. Other browsers, such as Firefox and Google Chrome, are not able to access the RSS function in WebSpace.

WebSpace will automatically create an RSS feed to track revisions to files and changes to the contents of folders. You can then subscribe to these feeds with an RSS reader, such as Google Reader. When the file or folder is modified, a notice will appear in your RSS reader.

Creating an RSS Feed

  1. Right-click the file or folder you want to view as an RSS feed.

  2. Select Create RSS Feed.

  3. A new window will open, displaying your newly created RSS feed. Click the Subscribe to this feed link.

  4. From the Create in pull-down menu, select where to store the RSS feed.

  5. Select the Subscribe button.
