Joomla 2.5 x. How to set up RSS feeds

In order to set up RSS feed, you should do the following:

    1. Please go Extensions- Module manager;

    2. Use New button in order to add a module;

    3. Select K2 Content module type;

    4. Enter module title:


    5. Select module position;

    6. Select categories you want to display;

    7. Make sure that RSS feed icon is set to display:


    8. Save changes.

  2. Now you should copy RSS icon’s link:

    1. We will use Developer Tool in order to copy the code of the RSS feed icon:


  3. Create custom HTML module and paste the code of RSS Feed subscription button into the module:

    1. In order to create custom HTML module, please follow this tutorial;

    2. Paste the RSS link’s code into the custom HTML module:


  4. Alternatively, you can add the RSS icon’s link in <head> section of index.php file located in the templates/themeXXX folder;

    • Locate templates/themeXXX/index.php file on the server;

    • Insert the RSS feed link into the <head> section:

      <link href="your_rss_feed_link_goes_here" rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" />
  5. You should unpublish K2-content module that we have created earlier. You can do that under Extensions – Module manager.
