Subscribe to the blog

Hello everyone!

Unfortunately I didn't find anything about my question here in the forum or in the documentation.
In addition to my photo gallery, I have a small blog, especially for my travels.
Is it possible to offer a kind of "subscription button" so that visitors can subscribe to the blog via feed, for example?
I can't find any settings in the panel. But maybe someone has an idea how to implement it.
Thank you and have a nice day,
Susan

Thanks Thomas for the tip. A newsletter would be an alternative, but an RSS feed would be much easier. I'm currently thinking about "building" my own RSS feed. Let's see if that works.

X3 does already create an RSS feed, but it's for the entire website, not specifically for the "blog".

I noticed on your website you use a service feedfry.com, and I see that it can create feeds from a specific page, for example your "blog". It guess it's a paid service if you want the feed to update automatically when you create new blog posts, but there might be other free solutions.

hello mjau-mjau,
thanks for your Information. The feed that x3 already creates doesn't seem to actually produce any results. But good to know, I'll take a look at the file structure.
I tried something yesterday. But feedfry.com does not run reliably. Sorry, I should have deleted that. I still tend to create my own txt file for the feed and update it manually. Automatically would be a lot easier, but I don't see a solution other than paid tools.
