A clickable RSS feed button

It is possible that with a free WordPress account, I will not be able to upload and store any images at this site. So, for this attempt, I have stashed that tiny RSS-valid GIF at one of my sites.

The concept is to have it appear here as a clickable link to the RSS feed for this site.

I’m going back to PageSpinner to write the code.

The code is entered below… and if this works, there should be a clickable link to the RSS feed page.

RSS Feed for Salish Sea Blog

Bingo! It works. In my browser there is a faint line under the image than fades on an off to indicate that the image is a link. I was also able to do that neat effect where, in modern browsers, if you hold your cursor over the image a little popup appears to say: RSS Feed for Salish Sea Blog.

I am using MarsEdit to upload (and now edit) this entry and created the code in PageSpinner.

If you are reading this and wondering why the fuss to find such a boring page: the reason is that a news aggregator can use the URL of that page to monitor this whole site. More about that in a future post.
