How to get the feed url for New Blogger

In old Classic Blogger, to get the feed URL, you click the SETTINGS tab, then FEED and you will find the feed URL there. Now in Blogger Beta, you can't do that because the feed URL is not displayed there. So how do we get the feed URL.

In the menu bar, click View, then Page Source, and the source code for the blog will open in another window. Somewhere in between the <head> and </head> tags you will see the feed URLs. I clicked VIEW > PAGE SOURCE and part of what I got from the page source I put in the scroll box below. The URL's of the feed is highlighted in red:

<meta content='text/html; charset=UTF-8' http-equiv='Content-Type'/>
<meta content='true' name='MSSmartTagsPreventParsing'/>
<meta content='blogger' name='generator'/>
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Blogger Tips and Tricks - Atom" href="http://blogger-tricks.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Blogger Tips and Tricks - RSS" href="http://blogger-tricks.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss" />
<link rel="service.post" type="application/atom+xml" title="Blogger Tips and Tricks - Atom" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/26880688/posts/default" />
<link rel="EditURI" type="application/rsd+xml" title="RSD" href="http://www.blogger.com/rsd.g?blogID=26880688" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Blogger Tips and Tricks - Atom" href="http://blogger-tricks.blogspot.com/feeds/115664212057653121/comments/default" />


You will have to scroll down to see the other feed URL. The last one is the feed for comments.

You can also get the Atom feed URL by scrolling to the bottom of the page, hover your mouse cursor over "Posts: Atom" and the URL will appear at the bottom left of the taskbar (see screenshot below):




I have been using
http://blogger-tricks.blogspot.com/rss.xml
for this site and it seem to be working. I have also done some tests and reported the results at Testing feed URLs for Blogger blogs

  2. It would be nice if that worked, but all I see when I cut/paste those links into a browser is "We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request."

  4. Since it's become Beta blogger, on both my blogs (Izmir blog and Not-so-desperate-yugowife)I'm getting all sorts of errors on my google sitemap that seem to pointing to the URL feed - like Missing XML attribute, URL not allowed or Incorrect nameplace. When I view the URL it points to - it tells me that

    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks for the blogger explosion update, by the way!

    By the way, Google web tools will no longer accept a sitemap generated by your feed because the feed you get (as per your instructions) points to a beta.blogger address that no linger includes your blog's name. Here's the blab:"The Sitemap must be located at http://izmir-blogfaq.blogspot.com/. To add a Sitemap at http://beta.blogger.com/feeds/31302518/posts/, first add that site to your account and then click the Add a Sitemap link beside it." so how can you up-date your site map to avoid it having a million errors?
    Thanks
    Izmir Blogger (aka Sandra)
