About

This asp file will generate an rss feed from and for use with the open source blog software Ublog.

It is designed to work with the version of the above named software using a Microsoft Access database.

It was designed primarily for use with Firefox's LiveBookmarks feature.

Instructions

Download rss2.asp.txt (see below), rename to rss2.asp and place in the blog root directory.

Open the file "include/metatag.inc" and add the following line:
