Free Simple RSS Editor
« on: February 02, 2015, 11:04:29 PM »
Oh, I am in need of a simple RSS editor - something to easily edit the xml for a regular old rss feed.
I just want to edit it locally or via a UNC share.

I've tried a few free rss editors and they are all so klunky or they don't work right, and *none* of them allow you to just drag-n-drop the file.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
So far I've tried:
  • RSSBuilder
  • RSSme
  • Easy Feed Editor

Maybe I should just make my own in autohotkey.  Shouldn't be too hard - its just that I don't have any time to do it!

Hmm...  I guess nobody has any ideas?

I might be missing something here, but I'm not sure I understand what exactly you are trying to edit.
For example, the DCF feed address is:
[http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=mi9ekvt647tf1t4tbugu88svg7&type=rss;action=.xml]
What/how would you want to edit that?

haha!  I don't want to edit someone else's RSS feed!
I want to edit my own for my own website!

OIC - I think.
You apparently want to generate your own website's feed address - is that right?

If so, then this might help:

I used to maintain an RSS feed; I used Notepad++. Once you've got the first story in there, it's pretty simple to copy the code for the next story. Of course, mine updated weekly, which isn't very often, and very little changed from week to week - it was a church service audio podcast, so I mostly had to change the date in a couple filenames.

Here's one I found that might do the job:

Edit: There's an XML plugin for notepad++ — I haven't used it but it may make generating rss code simpler.

Thanks, ayryq - I'll try that one.  I've tried a half dozen already, but not that one.
I'm using RSS Builder at the moment, but it doesn't work the way I'd like.
