    Splendid work - it accepts RSS1.0-only, right? I think I tried 0.9/2.0/Atom 1.3 without any results.

    It's not feed type specific, but at this point it's blog specific. Blogger XML feeds are Atom based, the Movable Type feed it uses is RSS 2.0, etc.

    Hmmm, it works for me only for 1.0 - and I dont use neither Blogger neither MovableType :] Thats the reason why I thought it has something to do with RSS types.

    Beats me... never tried it with anything else. I'm guessing whatever XML feed format you are using, it happens to be the same as what it's looking for when looking for Blogger or MT feeds. :)

    Thanks for offering another way (and free to boot) for your users to promote their work.

    Cron is a unix method for triggering repeating processes (like checking for new blog entries).

    If you are really bored, you can read about it...

    I agree that this is a good idea, and I setup my blog to do it, I never had titles before, but now I do. Geez what a simple idea.

    Good Jorb! :p

    My first post here, so Hello to one and all. Seems like a pleasant, knowledgeable crew here. Looking forward to the discussions.

    I like the full-feature editor. How does one add or change the signature. I guess that is in the UserCP somewhere?

    It's in the UserCP, but only available once you have 10+ posts.

    I've noticed that many people have signed up for a blog, seemingly because DigitalPoint has offered this feature...I just thought that was kind of funny :p

    Is the 'Publish Site Feed' option selected in the Blogger Site Feed setup screen? Also where is it publishing the atom.xml file to?

    You aren't publishing your XML feed (404 if you look at the URL), so as l0cke mentioned, I would check your path that you are publishing it to.
