RSS Feed/Notificatiion mails for visitors

Post by tlchost » Fri Jan 20, 2023 11:35 am

Is there a way to have visitors subscribe to an RSS feed or receive email notifications when a new post or comment has been made?

Thanks

Hello tlchost,

welcome.
Regarding RSS feed call this wiki article.

A function to receive a newsletter via email as a visitor is currently not supported by FlatPress. Maybe it is possible to save newsletter-interssents in a flatfile and send them automatically with a postfix-server. I don't know of any plugin that does this.

I read the article and set my feed reader to look at http://mysite/flat/rss.php
I am now getting feeds about posts. How can I add that url to the page layout so that the reader can get the rss feed?
thanks for the quick response.

Hello tlchost,

create a static page with the following content:

Code: Select all

[list]
[*][url=rss.php]RSS[/url]
[/list]
Then you activate the static page as a widget with the menu item "BlockParser Widgets".
Now you can position the RSS feed link in the menu column.

Hello tlchost,

your main menu already exists and is called (default) "menu".
You can find the main menu in the admincenter in the menu statics->Manage Statics. There you paste the code from my second post.

Alternatively you can use a prefabricated plugin which contains a subscribe button.

With best regards
