This is a simple post to show and explain and show how to verify a WordPress RSS feed with Digg. Typically, using a “vanilla” WordPress install, your feed link is: www.mysite.com/feed. You can add all sorts of your feeds to Digg from your WordPress website, so the standard /feed may be replaced by the different types of feeds you would want to syndicate to Digg.
In this particular exercise, we are merely using the standard WordPress basic feed URL for install. Below is the image that you are probably seeing on Digg asking you to verify your WordPress feed.
It’s actually rather easy from here. The only hard part is finding something to write about so that you can verify your new syndication with a post!
Just go ahead and copy the code within the 2nd horizontal Digg box and place it in the bottom of your next post. Make sure to use th ‘HTML’ editor rather than the ‘Visual’ editor within your WordPress Admin panel, or else the code will be stripped and will not allow to be ‘read’ by Digg to verify your feed.
Similarly, there is also an option where you would not have to create a new post, but actually insert the top bar code into the title or body of your wordpress RSS feed. I believe the folder to complete this action within your wordpress site is the wp-feed.php file. You will need FTP access and a text editor to place this code within the file. If anyone has an example of code for this particular file to verify RSS feeds for Digg with WordPress, please create a comment and let everyone know.
Good luck and Happy WordPressing / Digging!
