    (For example: http://www.yourdomain.com/wp_feed.xml)

XML feed format

If you would like additional information about the XML format, check Wikipedia.

The feed should be written in UTF-8.

The UTF-8 XML file has one ‘trovit’ tag, and one or more ‘ad’ elements. Each ‘ad’ element has basic and optional fields:
