River2 bookmarklet
    • I wanted an easier way to subscribe to feeds..
    • So I wrote down the way I wanted it to work and this is what I came up with.
    • I'm on a site and think "Gee I'd like to subscribe to this." I see it's got an XML icon in the address bar.
    • I click on a Bookmarklet and after a few seconds, am transported to the Feeds page in River2. To subscribe, I just click the Submit button.
    • So that's how I made it work! :-)
    • 1. Be sure that both the OPML Editor and River2 are fully updated.
    • 2. The River2 version number should be 0.79 or greater. You can see the version number in menu area on every page in the desktop website.
    • 3. Click this link, with the OPML Editor running, to go to the Bookmarklet install page.
    • 4. Following the instructions on the page, drag the bookmarklet to your toolbar. You may want to rename it to something shorter.
    • 5. Visit a page with a feed embedded. For example, Craig Newmark's blog.
    • 6. Click the bookmarklet. You'll be transported to the Feeds page with the URL of his feed in the box.
    • 7. Click Submit to subscribe.
    • Now, whenever you want to subscribe to a feed, just click the bookmarklet and it does all the tedious work for you. :-)
