Default PocketDay and RSS

Please Login to Remove!

I just added PocketDay to my BB and I added a few RSS feeds, well, I shoudl say I tried....

I'm getting illegal jave line arguement errors or something to along that lines. How do I know the RSS Feed URL?

Specifically slashdot, CNN, and if anybody could post some other interesting URLs I would appreciate it.

I ussually find the RSS URLs on their regular sites, there should be someplace on their hiome page a referrence to the RSS site. For example at the CNN site on the left side there is an Ion that says XML right next to the words RSS. WHen you click on the icon it takes you to the RSS site so I look at the URL bar and I get the following: http://www.cnn.com/services/rss/

Use Piconews instead, it works a lot better and has a more intuitive user interface. You'll love it! => http://www.piconews.com
