Site news

by Volker Weber

Manfred asked me today whether I could give the entries in my comments feed a unique key, like a consecutive number for each post. Once I got my monkey wrench out of the closet, I decided to rearrange the deck chairs. Here is a short list of things that have changed:

- Feeds now have 25 entries instead of 15.
- The comment feed entries point to the individual comments. No more scrolling.
- Added an Atom 0.3 feed.
- Added validator buttons for RSS and Atom.

You do know, that we have had a comments feed for a while, don't you? This is the easiest way to stay on top of the discussions going on here at vowe's magic flying circus.


Cool changes ’ especially the one with regards individual comment permalinks, very handy.

I was starting to think I was the only person doing that ;-)

You are not implying I stole the idea, are you? :-)

Volker Weber, 2004-02-12

No. I stole it myself. From a site where it didn’t work :-)

Right, back to wrestling with the firewall...

I think there is something about this in the MT manual(except for the validation stuff) so it isn't really stealing, per se, as much as it is applying a few simple techniques. Thanks for the pointer to the Atom validation, btw. =)

Halleluja for the Atom feed ;-)

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
