RSS Feeds - Themes


I have been doing some reading about setting up RSS Feeds for themes on Windows 7. There are even a handfull available to download/install and they work really well - these are done via Flickr.

Now - I have been trying to do some myself - just by searching for sets of photos posted by users on Flickr and trying to install them myself. Now this works to a certain extent, but I always end up with the wrong resolution of images - they are really small resolutions, so end up pixellated on my monitor.

I am just wondering if anyone has anyone has any experience in setting these up and if so, how would I go about getting the correct resolution of images.

Some stuff regarding the above;

Hope this helps :)

Thanks for the reply on that. I did have a read of that thread; I was trying to be a little more specific - as in themes with RSS feeds.

Thanks again for your help though :)

Ah, there is only 2 native regional themes that have RSS feeds. I'll write up a post on how to enable them for you, watch this space

P.S. you'll be able to use it for other themes too
