I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for, but it might help.

Basher: there isn't an easier way than Snow is on Fire linked to. Read the link more carefully - it's not as complex as it looks at first: Wordpress already has feeds built-in. You don't need to "put a feed onto" your blog, you just need to link to one of the feeds that's already there using one of the methods given, for example:

RSS Feed:

Code: [ Select ]
http://yourblog.com/wp-rss.php
OR
http://yourblog.com/?feed=rss
OR
http://yourblog.com/feed/rss/
  1. http://yourblog.com/wp-rss.php
  2. OR
  3. http://yourblog.com/?feed=rss
  4. OR
  5. http://yourblog.com/feed/rss/


RSS 2 Feed:

Code: [ Select ]
http://yourblog.com/wp-rss2.php
OR
http://yourblog.com/?feed=rss2
OR
http://yourblog.com/feed/rss2/
  1. http://yourblog.com/wp-rss2.php
  2. OR
  3. http://yourblog.com/?feed=rss2
  4. OR
  5. http://yourblog.com/feed/rss2/


Atom Feed:

Code: [ Select ]
http://yourblog.com/wp-atom.php
OR
http://yourblog.com/?feed=atom
OR
http://yourblog.com/feed/atom/
  1. http://yourblog.com/wp-atom.php
  2. OR
  3. http://yourblog.com/?feed=atom
  4. OR
  5. http://yourblog.com/feed/atom/


RDF Feed:

Code: [ Select ]
http://yourblog.com/wp-rdf.php
OR
http://yourblog.com/?feed=rdf
OR
http://yourblog.com/feed/rdf/
  1. http://yourblog.com/wp-rdf.php
  2. OR
  3. http://yourblog.com/?feed=rdf
  4. OR
  5. http://yourblog.com/feed/rdf/


Or you can link to the feed of your choice using a Wordpress tag tag:

Code: [ Select ]
<a href="<?php bloginfo('rss_url'); ?>RSS</a>
<a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>RSS 2</a>
<a href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>Atom</a>
<a href="<?php bloginfo('rdf_url'); ?>RDF</a>
  1. <a href="<?php bloginfo('rss_url'); ?>RSS</a>
  2. <a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>RSS 2</a>
  3. <a href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>Atom</a>
  4. <a href="<?php bloginfo('rdf_url'); ?>RDF</a>


Hope that helps!
