Custom RSS Feeds in Drupal
Ditch the core RSS functionality and build highly customisable syndication in Drupal 7!
The default /rss.xml that is built by Drupal is not generally optimal when large amounts of content is changing frequently on a site. I will cover the basics of building RSS feeds using Views and a few other contributed modules to extend and customise syndication in Drupal 7.
Drupal 6 handles these functions in similar ways, I will highlight the differences when applicable.
