The RSS Feed

RSS - "Really Simple Syndication". What is this? Have a look on wikipedia.

This feed allows users to subscribe to your schedule with things like Google Reader, and other RSS readers. You can also find widgets on facebook and myspace that will display RSS feeds on your pages.


You must enable the RSS feed.

  1. Log in to Bill's Gigulator.
  2. From the menu, go to "Setup" then "My Site Settings"
  3. Scroll down to "Feeds"
  4. Enable Rss Feed for "Shows" by clicking the checkbox.
  5. Name the title of the field. "Howard Jones Shows" or "Pete's Gigs" are good examples.
  6. Done!

The url's for the feeds are listed below the rss options and also on the help page.

Facebook / Myspace

There are numerous plugin's on facebook/myspace to display rss feeds. Here are some that we've had success with.
