    I have finally created my first blogsite thing. Never had the real erge to do so, but now I felt like it. It's going to have updates with everything we enjoy, tech and tech. Maybe some other random things too. Anyways, on the side I have links to good sites (one of them is this site) I have a RSS feed for my flickr account, and I'm wondering how do I put that on my blog?

    Thanks, and please check out my blog!

    *edit, wasent sure where I should of put this*

    What exactly do you want to do with the RSS feed, where do you want it and what do you want to display?

    Take the RSS feed from your flickr account, insert the graphic and hyperlink to it?

    http://feedicons.com/

    Get the icons from there.

    Then use this code to create the hyperlink with the image.

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne?id=18916284@N00&format=rss_200"><img src="feediconfilenamehere.jpg" width="Xpx" height="Ypx" alt="Flick RSS Feed" /></a>

    It's just HTML, I'm sure they allow it :)

    What type of problems/errors are you getting?
