It was a 4 meg file, to be exact: 4.37 MB (4,592,214 bytes)

People aren't interested in large rss files, especially with rss readers, and for some that use there Outlook clients to view rss, definitely not worth waiting around for 4meg.

The rss application is useless, but each to there own. The software is more aimed at people away from word press blogs etc as they do create there own rss feeds, and more aimed at people with basic websites.

Why does anyone need a feed "maker" Its far to easy to create one by hand. This is silly.

Like all software installs, Create a Restore Point before installing. Start | Programs | Accessories | System Tools | System Restore.
Then if you have some software that is causing you problems go back to the Restore point. This may save you a lot of grief someday.

Erik (#19) - If the database gets output to a web page, you could probably easily export that to RSS. Otherwise, it would be easier to use some programming language to have the database exported directly to RSS instead.

lyn (#23) - http://www.whatisrss.com/ and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS_(file_format) will help you understand what RSS ("Really Simple Syndication", though it used to be "RDF Site Summary" and "Rich Site Summary" - technically none of those are the same, but those're details you don't need to worry about) is. :>

TK (#30) - Not to mention that most uninstallers also ask before removing shared DLLs.

Arrgh... The unistaller for these extralab RSS Feed manipulation tools is broken because it blindly unregisters shared DLL's OCX's etc!

This means if one uninstals this Lite offering it will break the Full Feed editor we instaled before back in March.

ExtraLab, Microsoft maintain a counter of applications using shared DLL's etc that is supposed to be incremented upon application installation and decremented on uninstall and the DLL's only offered to the user for removal when the count reaches zero and not before!
You should also do a version check of your shared files that you want to install into the System(32) folder to make sure yours are newer than existing versions.

Just quickly reading through the comments, and doesn't appear to be any mention of it yet; This application is the 'Lite' version of this software. The helpfiles mention some functionality which isn't in this version (Import functionality similar to RSS Wizard featured 10 days ago, plus an XML editor and other goodies), only in the Pro version - Pro is $29.95. As well, the price for a business licences of these titles are also more.

We've already had far too many RSS related software. Although it is a very good field, as stated above, this has gotten redundant.I appreciate any free software, but in terms of use, this is worthless.

Final comment on this unless a reply to another comment is warrented...

Just go to:
http://www.extralabs.net/feed-editor-compare.htm
and compare the current offering with the Feed Editor Lite 2.3 list of features... then cmpare with Feed Editor which many may still have installed from when 4.31 was offered back in March 2007.

A quick DNS lookup on www.extralabs.net and www.webvigour.com shows both co-exist on the same virtual website host server at IP 81.222.134.42 and both domains use the same name servers. The only difference per se is that webvigour.com domain is registered using the whoisguard to obscure the true owners.

Why the deceptions? Webvigour.com claims to be a new startup in 2006 while extralabs.net claim to have been about since 2001... Is webvigour a licensed or unlicensed reseller of Extralabs products or something?

I have a question or two on this offereing... Why is it that in its About window it calls itself
Feed Editor Lite, ExtraLabs Software, Version 2.3?

back in March 19 2007 Extralabs Feed Editor 4.31 was the GAOTD offering... see http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/feed-editor/

This seems to be a slightly rebadged OLD version of ExtraLabs Feed Editor LITE!

#8 : 4MB is NOT the smallest size of disk unit that windows uses.

The smallest cluster size that windows CAN use is 512 bytes. The normal cluster size is 4KB or 4 kilo bytes or 4096 bytes.

4MB is 4096 KB or 4194304 bytes, definetely not the smallest size that windows can allocate. it's more than 2 floppy disks and though they aren't used much these days, windows can still use them.

BTW 4MB take about 10 seconds to download on 4 mega bit broadband, which is way too long to wait for a RSS feed.

Looks nice, but Newbie as I am, does it also work with publishing data from a ASP.Net-database? Does anyone know a app with such a function?

Thanks for another useful offering, GOTD. This program looks very nice at first glance. It certainly merits a try, and the New Feed wizard is nice.

However, a brief review does not reveal any other obvious advantages over some always-free alternatives, such as RSS Builder, Mirabyte Feed Writer, or Feed Launch .NET from SourceForge (which also supports Atom feeds, but does not yet support Vista).

Thanks again.

Nice software. But if you are using a CMS system or Blogging software you don't need to create RSS fees manually.

I just installed it unde VIsta Home Premium and exported the default sample feed and it generated a 1.89KByte length file taking up 4KBytes on the drive which is perfectly normal so my guess is #5 either made an error or generated a truely massive XML doc by including the entire text of a book or two or some such similar RSS feed design error.

Unlike #8 a.k.a. 'The Equaliser' some people actual comment on the product as it is available for everyone. Perhaps 'The Equaliser' just comes here for freebies and doesn't understand the idea behind GAOTD. Perhaps all he cares for is for filling up his hard disk with programs that may or may not be crap.

Unlike #8 a.k.a. 'The Equaliser' some people actual know somethings about computers. In other words, if jf3000 mentions that it created a 4 MB feed then perhaps 'The Equaliser' would do well in not presuming stuff. If you think it is normally to pushing a 4 MB RSS feed to anyone (including those with dial up) then I guess you don't know anything about the world and are just a self centered spoiled brat.

I wouldn't be surprised that by the end of the period there will have been 400 thumbs up and one rave comment after the other about how this is the best program ever and that it's amazing that it doesn't get sold for 199 USD and how lucky and grateful we all should be to be able to download it and use if for free....yada..yada..yada...you know the drill, it has happened all to often in the past.


Alternatives :
http://www.webdevtips.net/webdevtips/codegen/rss.shtml
http://www.rapidfeeds.com/

and of course who could ignore the true freeware and highly awarded
http://home.hetnet.nl/mr_2/43/bsoft/rssbuilder/

So keeping the alternatives in mind and keeping in mind that the world is really not holding it's breath collectively for your, your aunt's as well as your grandfather's website, let alone their RSS feed then perhaps someone from the fawning squad can make it clear why this is so good. While their at it then will without a doubt also be able to explain that if this is so marvelous then how come their even exists a RSS Feed Creator PRO v.4.5.

To the company, get real. I know you have to start somewhere but please...you'll do much better if you build up a user base before you start charging for something that is being made by every Tom, Dick and Harry. You have 3 products and all 3 of them are RSS related and all 3 are as original as a round wheel.

@8 This software is plainly not free. It has a rather large pricetag.

At any rate, I'm just saying that personally, I have no use for this software, so I do not have any facts on it. Just that, well, If I ever do somehow get the urge to do RSS feeds (Which is highly unlikely) I'll either go freeware or opensource, or both.

#8 what planet are you on? 4KByte not 4 MByte is the normal NTFS Allocation unit size. That is a difference of a factor of 1024 in size. If your system is using a cluster size of 4MBytes you must have a currently unheard of RAID array in the google-bytes region or bigger!

Whether the "4meg" size mentoned is valid or accurate I cannot comment since I have yet to download this and try it on this machine... give me a mo...

And the price point comment is a valid comment on the software as GAOTD and the vendor view these giveaways as extended trials until our PC's fail and need to be reloaded with software or a previous restore point has to be used, undoing the activation procedure. At which point we either buy the software or not. So stating an asking price is too high for the product is advanced notice that it is unlikely that followup purchases will follow in that posters opinion.

It's not bad as a freeware (it does its job), but it seems to be unfinished as a shareware:
Some controls look ugly in Windows XP. In unknown reasons author assigned Ctrl+X to move items instead of cutting a text, user interface could be more friendly.

@ #2 - How can $23.95 be too expensive when this software is FREE?
@ #5 - 4MB is very little in terms of space, especially when that is the smallest size of a disk unit that Windows uses to create files. Therefore, it may not necessarily be a fault of the software it could well be the operating system! Also, feed creators are aimed at authors who want to display content so that people can have RSS on the fly!

Some people either need to either get to know about PC's or get a life! This software costs you nothing and all we get from them is moans!

Why is this getting thumbs down?! This is the best software(for me) that they have had in a while! Great easy to use GUI, filling in your site title, description etc. with a wizard. Great and easy to use. FTPing to your site is easy. I give this a 9 out of 10

Useless application that made a 4meg rss file.

From experience people like rss on the fly, they definately don't like to wait for an rss to load, especially not 4megs.

Don't get me wrong here, rss is a great field to be with, but this application sucks.
