WordPress Website and Blog

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm still in development of my WordPress website (well, my web designer is helping with some items). I'm doing an interactive blog that will be a page on my website. It will be about tradeshows, not the VA side of things. I am looking for contact emails. Will that mean that I do NOT want a RSS feed? I was a bit confused on how the RSS feed works. Also, I'm looking to have a job board on this blog page for wholesalers at trade shows. I saw a plugin for WordPress for job boards. Can anyone tell me how that works and how it works with the blog? It's rather expensive at 100-200 annually. Any suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Every Wordpress site if you blog will have an RSS feed. Whether or not you want to share a link to it is up to you. RSS is a simply an Internet technology standard that allows busy people to receive updates to web-based content of interest. Users used to save the RSS feeds in RSS feeders like Bloglines, Feeddemon, Newsgator, etc (none of which exist anymore so that says it all) or . I honestly don't know anyone who really uses RSS feeders anymore does anyone else?

What type of job board? Why do you see a demand for this on your website? You mean for someone to add a job to your website? There are different ways of doing that from plugins to just having them add the job to a form and you manually add it or send it out to your list.

Sorry I missed this, @LeaTypeA! The only times I'll use RSS feeds is in an email client so I can keep an eye on industry blogs and curate content from them. But I hardly do that nowadays. I wonder if Google Gmail has an RSS viewer.

What was the job board plugin you were talking about? I know there's one that starts as free.

Is this for your client?
