In this article we will see how we can add an RSS Feed to your site
RSS feeds can be a useful way of letting your visitors see new content from your site. For example, I've added a couple on this site, one of which shows you a list of articles.

To create this on your site, add a new page entitled "rssfeed.aspx" and add this to the Page Load event:

As I mentioned above, you can see this in action here so to get a working example on your site, you'll need to:

Add the code that you use to connect to your database (in the section with the comment "Insert your code here to get the data").

Customise the sections where I have referenced my site and set the database fields in the "item element" loop.

Make sure you import the System.IO, System.Xml and System.Data classes.
