this is what I’m trying to do. In the front page there is the RSS symbol. I want that to link to my blog on the site. Where’s the feed for that page? The Abundance widget RSS link and twitter account is asking for feed url i’ve put the page id in and tried the full page http://burningcarpress.co.uk/?page_id=527 as well, but neither work. I also tried entering those on to the feedburner site but it comes back with : The URL does not appear to reference a valid XML file. We encountered the following problem: Unknown feed format encountered (The root element is [Element: <html [Namespace: http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/>). My site is in maintenance mode – I don’t know if that makes a difference. Can you please help.
The RSS feed is not for that purpose. Its a auto generated xml file that is strictly for RSS feeds. If you try and link it to your blog, you’ll run into issues where browser and users will expect one thing and get another.
If you want to add a custom icon to do that, you can do so following the steps here: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/adding-a-google-logo-to-the-home-page-next-to-facebook-and-tweeter?replies=2#post-88957
