Share the same RSS Feeds list between IE7 and Outlook2007

I don’t usually use feeds, I rather visit the site, but reading over at Untwisted Vortex, Richard mentioned subscribing to his feed so I thought I would look into it as I remember seeing an RSS folder in my Outlook2007 plus there is also RSS feeds in IE7 favourites.

When you use IE7 and Outlook 2007, you can view and maintain the same RSS Feeds subscriptions list in either program. You do this by sharing one RSS Feeds subscription list via the Common Feeds List in Windows.

The Common Feed List is used by Outlook 2007 and Internet Explorer 7 (and I guess any other program that wants to) as a common location for RSS Feeds information. When you add an RSS Feed to any program that uses the Common Feeds List, that RSS Feed is available in all programs automatically. Likewise, if you delete an RSS Feed, it is removed from all programs.

The first time you add an RSS Feed to Office Outlook 2007, you are prompted by a dialog box to keep your RSS Feeds subscriptions list synchronized between Outlook and the Common Feed List. Regardless of the option you choose, you can change your choice in the Advanced Options dialog box.
Synchronize your Outlook RSS Feed subscriptions with the Common Feeds List

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Other tab, under General, click Advanced Options.
  3. Under General settings, select the Sync RSS Feeds to the Common Feed List check box.

  2. On the Other tab, under General, click Advanced Options.
  3. Under General settings, clear the Sync RSS Feeds to the Common Feed List check box.

    Speaking of RT, he sent me over here to ask you for some advice about Word Press. I am currently using blogger, but I have no backlinks, so folks can’t link to a particular post. Can’t fix it as I don’t know how.

    Anyway, yesterday I opened a wordpress account because I knew I could import my blog. I had a 1000 posts and 2200 comments to move. So, there are things I do that I need to get into the template and put in various code.

    Am I on the right track here or not? Any help would be greatly appreciated (if you have the time) . My email address is listed above. Have a great weekend.

    I think wordpress is better but is more restricted than blogger. It handles comments a lot better.

    If you are using the free wordpress.com like I am you can’t change any script/html at all. You can ask at their forums but wordpress doesn’t allow much changing at all and no ads. You can ad script/html to the side like MyBlogLog etc, if that is all you want.

    I am not sure what you mean by no backlink – people can’t link to a post?.
    If I link to a post it gets a Linked To note under the comments. You must turn that option on in Blogger. I have just linked to your post Linky Love to see if it works for you but I can’t seem to open the Linky Love page, it doesn’t open properly.

    I appreciate your getting back to me. Let me explain about the no backlink (trackback). If you go to any post I have and click on the title it should show just that post, but it only goes to a blank page. So, when Coach or RT try to link to a post they can’t anymore. So, I’m losing a ton of linkage here. That is what my problem is. The address for the post shows above, just no post.

    Word Press will have to be an upgrade for me as there are things I need in the template. I do meme’s for one. So, RT thinks I just need my own dotcom so I have total control. Well, Blogger you had pretty much total control as I can access the template. I have had two folks go into my template and it hasn’t been the same since. What one or the both did I cannot find to correct.

    A big thanks for your words of advice.

    Have you got the option in Blogger, Settings-Archiving – Enable Post Pages? set to Yes?
