Having problems using the RSS feature. When I click on the RSS button a new window is opened but it does not show the calendar it displays its xml page code

 

example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

- <rss version="2.0" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

The Trumba RSS link for any calendar will always direct you to and return the XML that constitutes the RSS feed of a calendar.

The XML is meant to be consumed by an RSS reader(aka Blog Reader), but some older browsers will display it raw if they don't know what to do with it. Many modern web browsers today will, instead of showing you just the raw XML, show you the data in a blog style format. FireFox and Mozilla will show you raw XML if click the RSS link. However, if you click the RSS icon in the lower right corner of the browser and select "Subscribe to 'X' Events Calendar'", it will create a bookmark that subscribes you to the blog. Safari will always show you a blog format if you click the RSS link, which is very nice. Typically you need to either need to drag and drop the RSS icon into an RSS reader or copy the RSS address and paste it into the reader. The reader will then handle subscribing.
