Over the weekend I updated the site to the latest version of WordPress (the program Filmonic runs on) and earlier today I noticed that the there was a huge drop in RSS subscribers. After doing some digging I found that the RSS feed was actually broken and wasn’t showing up at all, which I assumed had something to do with the recent WordPress update. After further digging and troubleshooting I found the cause of the problem and the RSS feed is now working normally. Sorry to those subscribers who had no updates over the past few days. All is now well.
If you are currently thinking ‘What in the Dark Knight is an RSS?’ then fear not, I shall explain. RSS basically lets you know when a site has been updated with a new post, so you kinda get news ‘as it happens’. You can get RSS updates in an RSS reader, such as Google Reader, or by email. I have subscribed to the RSS feeds of many news sites and blogs to I can stay up to date with the latest news to update Filmonic with.
If you want to sign up to Filmonic’s RSS then click the big orange button in the left sidebar, or just click here.
