    Renaming the RSS Feed in the Blog Module Link to this post

    I recently installed the blog module for Silverstripe. And, it works really well.

    One question though: when I go to the RSS feed for it, the title of the feed is "mysite blog"

    That seems like something I can change somewhere, but I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know?

    Thanks!

    Theres 2places where you might need to edit it..

    1) You need to open up blog/code/BlogHolder.php and at about line 256 in that there is something like

    RSSFeed::linkToFeed($this->Link() . "rss", _t('BlogHolder.RSSFEED',"RSS feed of this blog"));

    You can set the text "RSS Feed for the blog" to whatever you want

    2) In the rss() method in BlogHolder.php (same file as before) at about line 289 is this

    $rss = new RSSFeed($children, $this->Link(), $project . " blog", "", "Title", "ParsedContent");

    The bit in bold is the title you are talking about. You can just change that to whatever you want!

    Note that $project comes from your _config.php, so change the project name from 'mysite' there and it will flow through to the blog rss feed.

    However, I think the RSS feed title should be a property of BlogHolder and be configurable from the CMS. There is no reason you can't have multiple blogs on one site and you wouldn't want them to have the same title.

    -- ok, so doing that breaks the manifest builder... thats really annoying, everything else seems to work.

    Hamish: That sounds like a perfectly acceptable enhancement. A field like "Name of blog" which is editable in the CMS on a per-BlogHolder basis sounds like the way to go.

    I've added a ticket for this in our open source tracker: http://open.silverstripe.com/ticket/2777

    Thanks!
