Postby GSake » Mon Jan 10, 2005 3:45 pm

is there a syndication rss option for polarhome news?
I would like to syndicate polahome's news on my website.

Well this is a good page:
http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2002/12/18/dive-into-xml.html

Actually it's easy to write the code for it work, I can try do it for polarhome if you like, but then I don't know how to update it automatically when you post something in news. :?

thanks...
this a really an easy format.
The only problem what I can see is that every item has a link... polarhome news usually has just titles :(

If you think that it might be usefull - I can implement it right now.

Well you can set each link as the polarhome start page.

Now if you ask me, I don't think it really is useful, as in case of a problem, usually it is first solved and then the announcement is made. RSS feeds are used so that you get the latest headlines / news in your desktop, not so useful in our case I think! :)

true... I try to solve problems imediatelly - and if it is more than one day task - then I include into TODO list.
Regardless - it will be as you decide.
Matej already works on possible solution.

Never mind, I've just been playing with this RSS stuff. I really don't care if it's useful or not. It's just fancy to have it. Beside, doesn’t this RSS/ATOM button look just great?
/me parses his Photoshop skills. :P

Rite, a max 5 kB XML file. Woot.

Last time i checked, there is no realtime compression for that rss feed :p

and if you click the rss link, you'll notice that the outcome is a 37kb file, quite far from 5kb ;)
