Blog

Publish your RSS feed on the home of Linkedin

The blog of this page (enriquegonzalez.net) is made with custom PHP programming, it is not a Wordpress or any other CMS, and like every blog it has its RSS feed. I wanted to put this feed on the homepage of my Linkedin profile through any of its plugins (they call them "applications"), but they only have a plugin for Wordpress.

So i have to make believe to this plugin that the feed comes from a Wordpress. The first thing to do is add to your feed all the typical tags that can be seen in a Wordpress feed, even the one that is:

<generator>http://wordpress.org/?v=3.0.1</generator>

I don't know if this tag is neccesary, but adding it to the feed, the Wordpress plugin of Linkedin will find what it is looking for.

The next modification is in the .htaccess file, because the plugin looks for an URL like this:

http://enriquegonzalez.net?feed=rss2

So your feed must have an URL like this. For this, make this modification in the .htaccess file:

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^feed=rss2$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ rss.php

And that is all, with this modification you will have your feed on the homepage of your Linkedin profile through their Wordpress plugin.
