Utak-atik Desain Logo RSS, Yuk!

Ada yang berbeda pada tampilan blog ini? Ya, logo subscribe via RSS sengaja saya besarkan. Mungkin sedikit menyilaukan mata, namun saya harap rekan semua tidak merasa terganggu dan tetap dapat menikmati kunjungannya di blog ini. Bukan tanpa maksud, tentunya dengan harapan agar mempermudah rekan blogger yang bermaksud berlangganan artikel gratis untuk mencarinya.


Anda ingin mencoba sendiri? Caranya sangat mudah dan hanya mensyaratkan beberapa hal, diantaranya memiliki akun feedburner, memiliki akun hosting image gratisan (saya memakai Photobucket), berburu logo RSS yang bertebaran di internet dan cuma-cuma untuk dipakai, dan yang terakhir sedikit mengutak-atik kode HTML pada elemen halaman blogspot yang baru.

Siap?

APAKAH FEEDS ITU? SEJENIS CEMILAN KAH?

Saya mulai pada langkah pertama, yaitu mendaftar di feedburner. Ups, ada yang belum memahami apa itu feeds? Sejenis cemilan kah? Hmm, saya katakan arti kiasannya bisa seperti itu. Dengan feeds kita bisa membaca hingga puluhan blog/situs dalam satu waktu. Jadi bukan cuma listrik yang dihemat, sudah zamannya sekarang waktu surfing pun dipangkas sedemikian rupa sehingga dalam waktu singkat banyak informasi yang dapat kita serap. Hubungannya dengan cemilan? Well, saya kira rekan semua sudah manggut-manggut kan? Kalau belum, baca terus!

Feeds are a way for websites large and small to distribute their content well beyond just visitors using browsers. Feeds permit subscription to regular updates, delivered automatically via a web portal, news reader, or in some cases good old email. Feeds also make it possible for site content to be packaged into "widgets," "gadgets," mobile devices, and other bite-sized technologies that make it possible to display blogs, podcasts, and major news/sports/weather/whatever headlines just about anywhere.

Bisa disimpulkan bahwa feeds adalah suatu sistem distribusi konten seperti halnya kala berkunjung ke situs/blog itu secara normal. Namun dengan feeds, bagaikan sebuah laci yang diisi dokumen siap pakai dan ter-update, kita dapat langsung membaca konten situs/blog tanpa harus mengunjungi alamatnya. Hmm, saya suka sekali berimajinasi, jadi begini saja: bayangkan kita memiliki sebuah kotak pos yang berfungsi sebagai penerima surat, lalu kita daftarkan alamat kotak pos itu untuk menerima produk-produk terbaru (yang tentunya gratis) dari pabrikan pilihan kita sendiri. Kita harap, setiap ada produk baru, detik itu juga barangnya mampir di kotak pos ajaib kita. Hebat kan?

Nah, tentunya rekan blogger juga tak mau mengecewakan dan menyulitkan pengunjung untuk berkunjung kembali bukan? Pengunjung juga memiliki waktu yang terbatas dan mungkin terlalu berharga, bahkan untuk hanya sekedar surfing ke situs/blog kegemarannya yang bisa jadi jari-jari yang sepuluh ini tak sanggup menghitungnya. Untuk itulah feedburner ada, dan sekedar informasi, kini feedburner sukses terakuisisi oleh salah satu raja internet, Google.

MULAI BERGERAK!

Oke, setelah mengerti arti penting feeds dan sedikit ngalor ngidhul, saatnya kita mulai proses awal yang saya nilai sangat vital dan menentukan: membuat akun di feedburner.

Seperti halnya membuat akun e-mail (Yahoo misalnya), kita pun sebagai pengguna pertama kali wajib untuk register. Klik kata register yang terletak di kanan atas halaman situs. Lihat ilustrasi di bawah ini:


Lalu akan tampil halaman seperti sebuah blanko pengisian identitas seperti gambar berikut:


Username : isi dengan nama yang digunakan untuk login, misal 'feedcoba' (tanpa tanda kutip).
Password : seperti nomor PIN, isi dengan sandi rahasia yang Anda sendiri yang tahu.
Password (again) : isi sama persis seperti poin nomor dua
E-mail Adress : isi dengan e-mail Anda, berguna untuk konfirmasi pendaftaran. Dianjurkan e-mail yang valid dan memang sedang aktif.
Secret Question : gunanya untuk konfirmasi saat Anda lupa password, isi saja 'apaan' (tanpa tanda kutip)
Answer : jawaban dari pertanyaan asal di atas, isi saja 'percobaan'
(tanpa tanda kutip).

Setelah semua beres, klik tombol Sign In dan selesai sudah. Langkah berikutnya, cek e-mail yang Anda masukkan di blanko registrasi tadi (kalau tidak ada di inbox, coba cek di bulk/trash), lalu ikuti langkah-langkah konfirmasi yang dikirim oleh feedburner. Lalu, selamat, Anda sudah mempunyai akun feedburner yang siap membakar artikel-artikel di blog Anda untuk dikonsumsi secara cepat oleh pengunjung.

Lho, lalu bagaimana dengan kita yang ingin membaca situs/blog lain melalui RSS? Mudah, yang kita butuhkan adalah sebuah program RSS Reader, seperti RSSOwl (download disini) atau FeedReader (download disini).

Untuk lebih jelasnya, silakan mainkan jemari Anda ke sini, sini dan disini. Dan buat yang skor TOEFL-nya yahud, sempatkan main ke sini, sini dan disini.

NGE-KOS IMAGE GRATIS DI DUNIA MAYA

Saya asumsikan Anda sudah mengenal lebih jauh tentang feeds dan feedburner. Saatnya untuk beranjak ke topik kedua yang tak kalah gampangnya, yaitu membuat akun di hosting image gratisan.

Kalau urusan nge-kos, saya sudah kenyang pengalaman, dan mungkin rekan semua juga sudah makan asam garam kehidupan di kos-kosan. Namun teknologi zaman ini sudah berada pada titik dimana kita bisa menyewa secara gratis berupa file, image maupun media di internet. Salah satu penyedia jasa host image gratis yang saya sukai adalah photobucket.


Untuk tutorial pendaftaran di photobucket dan cara upload image-nya, saya serahkan pada Kang Rohman yang bisa Anda kunjungi di sini.

Sebagai alternatif lain, berikut saya runutkan beberapa penyedia jasa hosting image gratisan:
FreeImageHosting
ImageShack
4FreeImageHost
FreeWebHost
Upload2

SIAP KEMBALI BERBURU DAN MERAMU?

Langkah kedua terlewati? Sekarang saatnya berburu image berupa logo-logo RSS cantik dan unik di internet. Setelah saya mblasuk sana sini, ternyata bukan cuma banyak, tapi banyak banget desain logo RSS di dunia maya! Saya sendiri menyukai GloryInLife. Selain koleksinya bagus-bagus, desainnya juga tak banyak melenceng dari format logo RSS yang sudah mendunia.


Butuh referensi lain? Coba telusuri daftar situs-situs berikut, siapa tahu Anda mendapatkan desain logo RSS yang Anda cari:
FeedIcons
Snap2Objects disini dan disini
StylishLabs
FastIcon disini, disini, disini dan disini
AjaxPath
ZeusBoxStudio
Mished
BittBox
Lorinator
ValentinaOlini
DevianArt
NyssajBrown

SAJIKAN SELAGI HANGAT!

Sudah mendapatkan inspirasi? Segera lakukan langkah berikut:
1. Save image pilihan pada harddisk komputer
2. Upload image pada hosting image gratisan
3. Sajikan di halaman blog!

Untuk cara-cara penyajian di halaman blogspot tentunya melewati beberapa tahap, namun saya jelaskan intinya saja (takut rekan semua jadi silindris kayak saya akibat kelamaan baca postingan).
Pertama, login di akun blogger, pilih Layout, pilih Elemen Halaman, pilih HTML/Javascript, lalu isikan kode berikut:



'feedcoba' diganti dengan nama akun yang diberikan oleh feedburner, dan 'alamat hosting image diganti dengan kode HTML alamat image Anda. Cobalah bereksperimen dengan desain-desain yang lain, yang klop dengan tampilan blog secara keseluruhan.

Punya pendapat lain, info yang lebih baru, atau sekedar say hai? Komentar sesuka Anda!

That brings me on to the point of all this. Who among the many United strikers of the past have been the best? For what they are worth, here are my thoughts on the top 5 strikers in the years prior to Alex Ferguson's reign at Manchester Utd. I have a strong suspicion that if you happen to be reading this your views may not align with mine, but I can live with that. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]manchester united[/url] The appointment of Sir Matt Busby as United’s manager after the war signalled a turning point in the team’s athletic fortunes. Busby instituted the practice of tapping players from the club’s youth team, then an unheard-of practice, but which soon produced impressive results as the team soon won the Football League in 1956 and 1957. The run ended in 1958 following the tragic Munich air disaster when eight of the team’s players perished. After a shaky period where some thought the club would fold, United once again made it to the winner’s circle by winning the Football League in 1965 and 1967 and the European Cup in 1968. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]michael carrick[/url] The current home games Manchester United shirt is red with a vertical, white stripe on the reverse. A patch with the words "The Red Devils" on a picture of the club's famous devil mascot is sewn onto to the bottom-left of the jersey. By contrast, the away shirt in use today is white with blue piping at the edges. It has red trim on the neck and the club emblem is on a white background on the left breast. The club emblem is pictured on a white background shield situated on the left breast. The emblem has been altered through the years but was originally designed based on the crest of the City of Manchester. One day Matt Busby was watching a local rugby team in Salford and was impressed by their flair and adventure on the pitch. When he discovered their nickname was "The Red Devils" he decided to attach it to his Manchester United team.

The game began well for Real Madrid, with strong energy in the players. Kaka was the first to make an attempt, but the goal was denied by Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. Only five minutes later, Cristiano Ronaldo took a pass from Gutis to the left and made a left-footed shot that ended up in Lyon’s net, setting the score 1-0 in the game and 1-1 in the aggregate. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]real madrid official site[/url] Just entering the second half, Raul Gonzalez collected a pass from Ronaldo to finish the play and set up the first goal of the match. Only two minutes after, Matteo Contini saw the red card and Zaragoza was left with 10 players. But far from collapse due to the expulsion, the Zaragoza player Adrian Colunga faced Iker Casillas and got the equalizer at minute 61. Despite this goal, the Whites kept attacking but it was not until minute 82 when Kaka, who came back from injury, picked up a deep pass from Ronaldo and put the final 2-1 for Real Madrid.

A few short minutes after the opening of the game, in minute 5, the Meringues opened the score. A foul gave a free kick to Esteban Granero, who crossed a pass that was headed by Sergio Ramos, putting the scoreboard at 1-0. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]cristiano ronaldo[/url] Real Madrid’s second goal came as a penalty after Marcelo Vieira Da Silva’s cross hit the Villareal full-back Angel Lopez in the arm. Kaka took over the penalty and converted, giving Real Madrid its final point for the game. Cristiano Ronaldo had other opportunities, but he failed to settle, and Real Madrid took the game 2-0.
