Ok, so I just used my Firefox and it worked fine (so that's a user preferences not browser thing). Thanks for the idea to check other browsers.

 

Seems to be working fine then, and much appreciated on the help....

You could just change the link destination of the RSS icon in your media gallery to the RSS link 

 

something like http:/www.thetradinglab.com/feed/

That's what I thought: Is as simple as  http:/www.thetradinglab.com/feed/

or something I have to get out of my control panel host specifically? and if so where exactly folder wise might that be?

Hi there,

 

It looks like the image has been added manually outside of the pagelines settings. The image in currently linking to the image file, not the rss link. If you change the link from the image to http://www.thetradinglab.com/feed/ that will take you to the rss feed.

That's almost got it: If I use that exact link it seems to default to google reader which i don't happen to use. I won't want to force anyone to do Google Reader. 

 

Hmmm...seems Google may have slipped a app onto my Mac. When I delete Google reader it works fine. Can you test link on your end and see if it forces you to Google or options you to your default reader?

Hi there, when i use in firefox i get - http://screencast.com/t/C98IR8EPV84a

 

When testing in other browsers i get an option to either choose or download an rss reader to use within the browser as i haven't set any previously. It's not forcing me to use google.
