Post subject:  New Arrivals RSS Feed

We've just added an RSS Feed for our New Arrivals section....check it out (click the RSS icon below and use your favorite RSS reader to suscribe if you like). We plan to always re-publish the feed anytime we add new items, but it also auto-updates every 2 hours or so in case we forget to do it. The New Arrivals feed will always show the 48 newest items on our site.

Awesome! I've thought of an idea extremely similar to this a long time ago for the site, even posted it on here, and it's awesome to finally see something like this finally happen. :)

I love it when shops use an RSS feed for their new stuff.

I use Bloglines to keep all my RSS feeds organized.

Usually the organge box symbol for RSS will show up in the address bar
for my Firefox browser to show me that a webpage has an RSS feed.
Your "New Arrivals" page doesn't bring up that organge box in the
address bar so I clicked directly on the orange box you guys have
next to the title, "New Arrivals". It took me two tries for the feed
to register with Bloglines so that I could add it to my list.

So everyone, be sure to keep trying everything and/or repeat
what makes sense if it at first the feed doesn't work for you.

I'll look into this when I have time....I'm a bit of an RSS noob so there may be a better way to do it. Right now I'm using Ponyfish to generate the feed from the New Arrivals page (which is a dynamic .asp page). It works, but I'm sure there has to be a better way to do it.

Looks like our Ponyfish RSS feed isn't working right...I'll try to get it up and going again soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.

In the meantime, I always post new arrivals on our store Twitter:

Our New Arrivals RSS feed is working again. Sorry that took me forever to fix....everytime I looked at it I couldn't figure out the problem...but got it worked out tonight. :)

As mentioned above though, following us on Twitter may be a more immediate way to get new arrivals notices...
