    I've setup a blog for myself using iWeb '08. Is it possible to add a link that readers can use to forward my blog entries to their friends?

    Ideally, this feature would forward both my blog entry and a link back to my site, which is similar to the forwarding feature on the nytimes.com website.

    thanks!

    I've discovered that feedburner has a service called feedflare that will insert "Email Article" links into your blog. It seems to be what I'm looking for, but I can't make it work. I'd be quite grateful to anyone who can point me in the right direction.

    I'm supposed to enter in the following code into every blog entry:

    <script src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~s/myfeeduri?
    spaceUrl=http://feeds.feedburner.com/~s/myfeeduri?i=POST-URL-HERE" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>

    I tried doing this and replaced "myfeeduri" with "mydomain". I am also supposed to replace "POST-URL-HERE" with "your blog’s template tags to dynamically insert the URL of the current post. " What would that tag be for an iWeb created blog?

    I pasted the code into iWeb using the HTML snippet function thinking that the links would at least show up when I published to my site (even though they wouldn't be working) but there was nothing there.

    Many thanks to anyone who can help me out with this one.

    How about putting the code in your template?
    Just a thought, might be less hassle. :)
