Hi - I am currently using Dreamweaver CS4 and RSS DreamFeeder from rnsoft.com (which is no longer supported) to create a customized RSS Feed for my website. I'd like to migrate to Dreamweaver CS6, but I already know that RSS DreamFeeder won't work in it - and so I'm asking here for advice on how (or what tool) you think is best for me to create an RSS Feed. [I do not mean how to include an existing RSS feed into my website - instead I need to CREATE a custom RSS Feed for my website.]
What I like about the old (now unsupported) rnsoft.com tool is - it allows me to create a custom feed, and include images as well as URLs, all within Dreamweaver CS4... so that's ideally what I'm looking for, but for within DW CS6. Does such an extension for DW CS6 exist? I've done several searches both here, and on google - and I don't find anything that is specific to DW CS6 for creating rss feeds. There are some third-party tools (which are separate from DW CS6) that I suppose I could use - but ideally I'd like to stick with just one development environment. Plus - what I'm doing seems like something that should be fairly common, right?
Here is my current DW CS4 / RSS DreamFeeder-generated feed:
and so that is exactly what I'd like to generate from within DW CS6. Any advice? Thanks in advance for your help!
I'm unaware of any DW CS6 plug-in that can do this for you 'as yet'.
How about filing a feature request with Adobe to see if they can implement it into DW directly?!
I'm going to reply to myself, just to let anyone else who needs to create an RSS Feed know that I did find a solution to this issue - but it is using a standalone product called FeedforAll.
FeedForAll works under Windows 8 (in compatibility mode). I downloaded an eval version from the FeedForAll website, and was able to duplicate my existing feed (which was created using RSS Dreamfeeder, a now-obsolete extension to Dreamweaver CS4) in roughly one hour's time.
You can view my original feed, using the link from my original post above. Here is the test feed I created today using FeedForAll:
As Sudarshan suggested in his reply above, I did put in a feature request for Dreamweaver using the link he gave me - so hopefully Adobe will eventually add in this as a new feature ... because many of us website developers do need to create customized RSS feeds, and it would be great to be able to do it all from within one development environment, Dreamweaver.
