The RSS addon hasn't been updated or supported in some time, although it was a good idea when created to generate 0.91 feeds. I used it for some time before I became interested in writing my own RSS 2.0 solution, which is posted here:
http://coranto.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=64290#64290

I have been waiting for someone to try it out and post back their results, I hope you will take the time to do that. Note that my RSS feed generator is not an addon, but a customizable Style and Template that work together to generate the XML file. It has only been tested with Coranto 1.31.5 beta, in anticipation of a release version. The approach is quite different from others (read the lengthy thread linked to above), so I hope you will post back and share your experience.

...could you make a full instruction install for me to make sure



1) In Coranto 1.31.5 Beta, go to Administration->Edit News Styles->Create New Style.

2) Name the new Style "RSS Feed" without the quotes and create a STANDARD Style.

3) Click "Edit" RSS Feed and paste the Style Code I provided. Type in the name of your Organization or Feed, and the URL of your Channel Image, which can be no more than 144 pixels in width. Click "Save Changes."

4) Open the Notepad application on your computer, paste the Template code I provided, Save the file, then Rename the file to "rss.tmpl" without the quotes. Upload the rss.tmpl file to the "Templates" folder in your Coranto 1.31.5 installation on your server.

5) In Administration->Manage Profiles->Create New Profile, create a Profile named "RSS_Feed" without the quotes. Enable the RSS_Feed Profile.

6) Click "Edit General Settings" for the RSS_Feed Profile. Scroll down to "Categories" and select any Categories of news items you wish to include in your feed. Immediately below that, select "RSS Feed" as your News Style. Scroll down to "HTML Template" and select "rss.tmpl". Immediately below that, type in "rss.xml" without the quotes as your "HTML User File Name." Scroll down to "Anchor Tags?" and set them to "OFF." Do not make any other changes to the Profile settings. Click "Save Changes."

7) Go to Administration and click the "Build News" link. You should now have a valid RSS 2.0 file named "rss.xml" in your news files folder.

8) Post back if this does not answer all of your questions.

Glad to hear it and glad to help.

OK as far as I am concerned, but I am not a core developer of Coranto, so you should check with them and please remember to give credit where credit is due. JMO

Making a tutorial (video or other) of how to create a specific task through Coranto is always a good idea. Regarding tutorials/guides/FAQ/help sections in general I don't see that as a matter to decide for a core developer, that is more of an administrative issue and personally I would really like to see a volunteer taking a larger grip of the help sections to get a common look and feel... JMHO
Yes, I am still around...
