Set Your Feed URL

If you’re using an service like FeedBurner to manage your RSS feed, Thesis makes it easy to point your feed link to the service’s URL (instead of using the one which points to the default WordPress feed).

Go to the Site Options panel, and expand the “Syndication/Feed URL” section (under Document Head).

In the Feed URL field, enter the URL to your preferred feed. Click the Save button.

Customize Feed Link Text

The information in this section only applies when “Thesis nav menu” has been selected as the Menu Type under Navigation Menu.

By default, Thesis uses the word “Subscribe” as the text for your feed link in the Nav Menu. To change this text, go to the Site Options panel, and expand the “Feed Link” section (under Navigation Menu).

In the Change your feed link text field, enter your desired text to be used for the feed link. Click the Save button.

Style Feed Link

Place this code in custom.css, and change to suit your requirements:

.custom .rss a {
   color: #111111;
   text-transform: uppercase;
   padding-right: 16px;
   background: url('../lib/images/icon-rss.gif') 100% 50% no-repeat;
}
.custom .rss a:hover {
   color: #111111;
   text-decoration: underline;
}

Remove ‘nofollow’ Attribute From Feed Link

The information in this section only applies when “Thesis nav menu” has been selected as the Menu Type under Navigation Menu.

By default, Thesis applies the nofollow attribute to your feed link. To disable this behavior, go to the Site Options panel, and expand the “Feed Link” section (under Navigation Menu).

Uncheck the Add nofollow to feed link option. Click the Save button.
