How To Create an Add-to-My-Yahoo Button on Your Website?

If you like the "Add to My Yahoo" button showing on this site, you can create one for your own Web site by following the tutorial exercise below:

1. Create an RSS Atom 1.0 feed file for your site, and make it accessible with a URL. If the feed file is generated dynamically, take the URL of the script that generates the feed file. For example, this site uses an Atom 1.0 feed file at this URL: "http://dev.fyicenter.com/faq/rss/atom.xml".

2. Take this "Add to My Yahoo" image file and upload it to your site:
            My Yahoo icon

3. Modify the following HTML code and put it into your Web pages:

<a href="http://add.my.yahoo.com/rss?url=AtomFeedURL">
<img border="0" src="add_to_my_yahoo.gif"
 alt="Add to MyYahoo!"></a>
