The goal of the Blog Feed Finder (BFF) is to provide non-technical users an intuitive interface which guides them through the process of finding the appropriate web address (URI) for their blog's feed, providing them with short non-technical insights to help their learning, complemented with more technically accurate elaboration in user-selectable info popups. The system is intended for use by both desktop/laptop and mobile computer users.
The BFF plug-in is designed to work on a WP in Multi-Site configuration. In our case, we use each sub-site (in subdir mode) as a separate "Course" in which learners (either anonymous or logged in users) participate. Once the user has found a valid blog feed, if they are authenticated, this plugin allows them to associate that feed URL (and its feed type, e.g. RSS, Atom, JSON) with each Course (subsite) for which they are registered.

In the case of registered blog feeds, we scan them for tagged posts and then reference them in a form that can be incorporated into our per-Course WEnotes feeds.

If the user is authenticated, further capabilities are available:
* If multiple feeds are found, the BFF tries to identify the most likely candidate, and eliminates any that clearly aren't what's being sought (e.g. the common "Comment" feed on many WordPress blogs), allowing the user to choose among any remaining candidates,
* once a single feed is selected, the user is then presented with a list of the Courses (subsites) for which they are registered, including a listing of any existing feed specifications. The user can then opt to set the selected feed to that for any of the courses.
